    Hi..
    As a new user to LNS, i have used the eMule ruleset to allow traffic through LNS for my eMule client(NeoMule)..
    The problem is that to use a feature called "Web Service" I have to open up port "4711"(TCP I think)...
    I wouldnt have the foggiest notion how to create a rule for that port..
    I gave it a try and I got lost on the first configuration box
    Is there anyone with a bit of time on there hands that could show me in n00b terms how to do it please??

    Well 23 people had looked at this post by the time I write this...
    Thanks for nothing!!
    not even one person could help me with creating a rule..
    I can see I wasted my money purchasing this product, the support is virtually nil

    From now on I get anything of your products from p2p applications instead of buying them....
    Finished my rant and rave..
    so long :mad:

    Skank,

    Do u know that any of the 23 people who viewed this post knew how to write this rule?

    The support here is excellent. U must be patient as it takes time to get replies depending on the issue. I've seen it take a few minutes to a couple of days to get the help needed.

    Impatient? You gotta give it more than a couple hours on a public forum.. there's nearly 40,000 users, and most are here for roughly the same kind of reason as yourself.

    The easiest way to create a rule in LnS is to look for the notification of blocked traffic in the log, right click on the line stating the traffic was blocked and "create rule"

    Well Im glad I decided to poke my head in here again....
    Well first I must apologise for my impatience, I guess Im used to big forums where within 10 mins you usually have 50 answers to your question... ;)
    Thank you all for posting and having your say....
    Anyway down to business...
    After spending most of the day re-reading the manual I gave it another shot at making a rule for the port in question(4711)...After having seen the screenshot above, I now know(I think) where I was going wrong..
    Somebody mentioned in this thread to just have a look in the log and right click the line where the traffic was blocked, thats just it, by the time I figured that out from the manual, I realised it wasnt being shown in the log as being blocked, well not in any language that I understood.
    Up until I saw the screenshot above I had given up all hope of being able to use my Mules web service, but once Id seen it I knew exactly where I was going wrong. I was putting the port I wanted to open in the wrong place and I didnt even have the "In range A-B Port 1024-65535" entered in correctly...Duhhh!!! :doubt:
    So i apologise profusely for my impatience...

    Another question I have goes along these lines
    I had imported the eMule\eDonkey rules I got from the website, but I was using the "Enhanced Ruleset", and i noticed right at the very bottom theres a rule there that "Blocks any other packet"..The same sort of rule was there for blocking UDP & TCP packets so I turned them off and I was getting better connections from clients\servers or so I thought, is that necessary or was I meant to leave them be??
    Thanks for your time and replys and I will be more patient in the future!!!

    Im off to go check out ProcessGuard, which is my next planned purchase..
    Thanks all and thanks for the screenshot!!!

    If you want support, there is an mail address for registered users on LnS web page. This is NOT official support forum of any kind, although LnS authors sometimes post here.

    Have a look halfway down through the following link to see what another delighted users experience with this mail address you mention.
    He;s not joking, thats similar to the reaction I got

    As I know form this forum, LnS authors usually respond quite quickly and helpfully. It is not clear to me if Jimbo40 has registered LnS (only registered users get priority support).

    And one thing: "I wouldnt have the foggiest notion how to create a rule for that port.". It seems to me you lack basic knowledge to handle a simple firewall. And for some strange reason you did not evaluate it before purchase. "The best" product in any software category does not mean it could be handled by anyone.
    My advice- take a 101 course in networking or go for a popular, self configuring firewall or else you will experience dozens of similar "problems".

    I am not suprised that LnS authors do not haste to solve such kind of "problems". They are really not their problems.

    Seems Im not the only one with the problem...lol
    24 people had looked at the threads question, and not one of them answered your so called easy question. :D
    And the so called support for LNS for registered users is slack. Might as well mention, what you determine as basic knowledge is not what others would...
    Oh I just wish I was as clever as you...Not!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks for the worthless reply that had nothing to do with the topic :doubt:

    That is correct; however the download server containing the official copy of the rule-set had gone off air recently, looking forward to putting it back up when time permits.

    No problem.

    Be little more considered to the readers on here when you post in the future, not a lot of people are qualified to handle even mere questions you have asked, and as for myself, I’m not around much anymore, but I promise when I can, and If I see your questions I’ll do my absolute best to respond as quickly as possible.

    And as promised, Phant0m``s Rule-set v6 Final available from official download server, http://www.fluxgfx.com/looknstop/store/Phant0m`s-v6-Final.zip

    Enjoy,
    Phant0m``

    However I’m about to leave, and I didn’t have chance to put back up the Guide pages for it, please don’t apply the rule-set until you look around the forum for information necessary before apply it.

    Drop the word "support" and you will be right. That's a lot of difference.

    BTW, Skank: I am not suprised that not one of 30 or so visiting ppl bothered to answer. You know, paying for something does not absolve you from thinking.
