once you have chosen what file you want to download, how do you start it?. i clicked download but it isn't going anywhere (its not downloading). please help. whats causing the problem?.
No, but if you have an Intel Mac you can dual boot Windows (or run something like Parallels), which will then let you run Share.Does this work or should I ask will it ever work for MAC OS X v 10.5.8?
Nope. However there are many files originally found on Share that are redistributed via bittorrent. But in using uTorrent, you cannot download directly from the Share network.Can I use uTorrent to get Share files?
I would guess that whoever the original uploader was, they have taken the file out of their uploads folder, and no one else who is online has a complete copy in their cache. Especially large files you have to get fast.Ok, I've been using Share for almost a year now and I've never had problems. Now, something's bothering me.
I started to download a whole series from the same uploader. The isos are like 40 and i got 20 so far (so i'm half way). Now I've come across three isos which I can't complete! The problem is that it can't find all the blocks to download (and for these three isos is always about 5 blocks only!!) so it stops without being complete. What amazes me is that the uploader is the same and I'm still going on downloading the rest of the dvds from the same person, so it's not like he/she stopped being on Share. I found another uploader who had the same dvds and I tried with that but nothing changes (even the number of blocks not found are the same, like the other uploader is the same person). I changed the clusters, updated the nodes to no avail. I don't get what's wrong since I'm going on and can download the other dvds (same series, same uploader) pretty fast and easily. It's like they're stuck with this number of blocks found and won't even look for others. Is there some way to reset the status or something to make the downloads start again? What can I do?
Is it visible in the downloads window? Under Status, how many pieces of the total are available?once you have chosen what file you want to download, how do you start it?. i clicked download but it isn't going anywhere (its not downloading). please help. whats causing the problem?.
Under general settings, I randomly selected port 54400. Then I ran the command prompt to get my IP info (ipconifg/all). Then I went to my network connections and set a static IP copying all the info over and setting my IP address 192.168.1.1x where x is a number I chose. Next a visit to windows firewall exceptions. Share is already listed as an exception so in theory I don't need to add a port? I tried anyway calling it share also (now there are 2 share exceptions) and using port 54400 with no luck. Lastly I visited my router setup 192.168.1.1 and configured port forwarding service name: share service type: TCP starting port: 54400 ending port: 54400 server IP address: 192.168.1.1x where x is a number I chose.
That's interesting: I always leave the files I upload in my upload folder(s) but Share doesn't seems to touch them again once they are diffused for the first time. It is not so? Share can diffuse them again when they are requested from someone and there are not complete copies of those files on the network?I would guess that whoever the original uploader was, they have taken the file out of their uploads folder, and no one else who is online has a complete copy in their cache. Especially large files you have to get fast.
