The LowID Clinic -- a support thread for LowID problems

Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

Re: The LowID Clinic -- a support thread for LowID problems

I had a strange experience yesterday morning (And no, it was not with the little woman ... we'll save those stories for another time).

When I got up the connection was a little sluggish and then the server suddenly disconnected.

It re-connected and I thought nothing of it.

But I noticed something (I'm not at my best that early) ... there were yellowed (low ID) clients downloading to me. Sure enough, I had a high ID. After several cartwheels ... or what passes for them at my age. I watched as my download speed slowly increased to my max of 200Kb.

I dutifully set off for work after that with a big smile on my face.

When I returned home, there was a nice big message in the middle of my screen ... Since I had re-installed AVG at your suggestion, it had done an update while I was gone and was now prompting me to re-boot my system ... or else. (You know how insistent they can be)

I re-booted and ... no high ID ever since.

My theories: either my ISP did something at their end that morning and I snuck in before all their protocols were in place or AVG is my problem. (I'm leaning towards my ISP as the source of my ills)

I still have not worked with the new information you have supplied above. I intend to do that today.

I did think that this new occurrence was important enough to mention before I did anything further though.

Okay ... worked through disconnecting the router and the firewall ...

Nada ... Still no connection on that complete range of ports.

I guess it is the ISP.

Okay, that is freaky.

Either someone is spoofing me or eMule lies to me.

I have not seen those green arrows for a couple of days now.

I looked at my logs and I have had low IDs all along and I have been connected through TV Underground Server 1.

Kad started with a status of Firewalled and a UDPStatus of open but unverified. Then it went Firewalled on both.

My teacher of Vedanta once said: "If you look for error, you find error."

I understand that eMule has very unfriendly application (config) for very friendly P2P networks (eD2K & Kad). Sometimes the easiest way is to blame the ISP: if we're suspicious of our ISPs, so maybe all we try is guided by this suspicion.

It's hard to believe that an ISP with thousands of customers risk its market share being a pain in the ass for all those same customers... blocking a lot of ports for many services (including P2P).

Anyway...

It would be a big coincidence: you snuck in before ISP protocols were in place, and AVG isn't your problem after a big update, don't you think? Did you check if AVG LinkScanner (or any other Internet monitoring software) was re-installed/re-activated after re-boot?

You got HighID for hours, for myself: it is NOT your ISP.

If you're suspicious of AVG: did you disconnect the AVG as well? Did you test ports in eMule Options before connect eMule? What are the results?

Did you test ports in eMule Options before connect eMule? What are the results? Did you try to connect "eDonkeyServer No2" (the best server to connect)? Did you work on the information (eMule config for work through disconnecting router and firewall) above?

Well, in answer to your question, YES, I have performed all the tests you outlined above including completely removing AVG, dropping the windows firewall and direct connect to the modem. In fact, I did it all twice just to be sure.

The results of the port test (Unconnected) were negative. As you know, not having a TCP connection disallows the other ports being tested.

I tried all servers multiple times after the unconnected test including eDonkey Server 2 (Which I had to manually load because it did not come down in the safe server list you supplied: http://en.emulehelp.com/server.met )

:boohoo I understand your reluctance to believe that an ISP would make a decision to cripple their system. The thing you have to remember about my location is that I am in Beijing. They tend to come down hard on ISPs that do not follow central government directives and there is essentially no legal system. Beijing is not pursuing file down-loaders because most wouldn't have the cash to justify an arrest re IP Rights. They can however force ISPs to conform to a rigid set of laws. After all, this is a country that imprisons people longer than some murderers in the USA for protesting that their water is being polluted.

That is not to say I don't appreciate everything you're doing for me. I remain guardedly optimistic that there may be a solution to this.

If there is one admirable thing I have learned from the Chinese it is that you struggle on and try to beat the system but always remain pessimistic about the outcome. It saves a lot of tears and disappointment.

I am getting what I want downloaded. I have a reasonably fast connection.

I just want to contribute more to the P2P network myself and think a high ID would help.

Political rant over. :boohoo

Where do we go from here? :D

As long as it does not involve tanks in Tiananmen, I'm your man. :karate

I know ... I take more maintenance than a rich girlfriend from 'the Valley' ... Oh M'Gooood!'

I found on MAJOR Problem ... Idiot that I am, when I installed Windows 7 and then did the eMule software, I seem to have selected 'each user has own configuration'. So the changes that I have been making under the eMule config directory have not actually been detected by the system. Doh!

I have remedied this however but it has caused eMule to re-hash about 2000 files.

Once completed, I will work through all the above for the 3rd time and report back my findings.

Well, off to flog myself for being an idiot. :slapbot

TSM, sorry for any inconvenience, but I am a new arrival in this forum, so...

I couldn't remember that your location is Beijing - it is the first time I am reading this, and I did not checked the IP you gave.

Be careful if you are trying to make some P2P in CIA office at US Embassy in Beijing - probably they will arrest you for your cooperation to WikiLeaks.

Of course you right: some of my suggestions are applied mainly to Western countries (or at least, capitalist countries with free P2P networking infrastructure).

I was taken by the way you express yourself: if you are Chinese you have a good English, if you are an American you have a good English anyway, so please forgive me. Your IPs (58.31.0.1, 58.31.3.99) belongs to BEIJING GEHUA CATV NETWORK CO., LTD., No.35, N.HuaTuan Rd., Haidian District, Beijing, P.R.C., isn't it?

Few years ago I was living in Wuhan (Hubei Province) for one year. The same period of an earthquake in Pacific nearby Taiwan destroyed the China & Taiwan undersea optical fiber backbone. If I correctly remind my experience there I can say:

A friend of mine (Chinese) translated a warning fixed with tape just above the Internet RJ-45 plug in the wall... the warning was saying: "P2P programs are forbidden" or something like that. I ripped off the warning from the wall and I said to my friend: "Not anymore... now I can use eMule". I was running eMule for months already when I understood the warning in my apartment. No monitoring issues from building admin, ISP or governemnt, they just left me alone.

UPnP worked sometimes behind the building router (set of routers per building, apartments had no modem). Sometimes when UPnP was not OK, I did a port scan over router IP with Advanced Port Scanner, Port Detective, etc. or I requested an external port scan with ShieldsUp from grc.com site. And chose new (open) ports.

The HighID/LowID status changed time by time. When I got LowID I disconnected and tried next lower-ping server. Sometimes I had to try 6 to 7 different servers to got HighID. (Servers with their own IPFilter refusing Chinese IPs connection?)

I noticed when the traffic on the building router was heavy (a lot of users up/downloading), was harder to get open ports, UPnP and HighID. I concluded that the router had a programming to react to heavy (upload) traffic typical of P2P activity. I studied the building traffic timing, and then I scheduled eMule for lower upload speeds. At that time the speed was 100 Mbps for near of 50 apartments. I set Max upload speed for eMule as half of 100 / 50 (or something like that).

During one month (time of the earthquake-broken backbone) I had interesting experience: China Internet was fully operational but I couldn't access any webserver outside China... the universities get concerned about one entire month without any update of some operating systems and related security software. I had to choose good Chinese DNS servers. Do it for you router (or computer if direct connection to Internet), it helps: I found many Chinese sites with lists of DNS servers, some of them not belonging to the Chinese government. DNS Servers control is the first stage of Internet control, they can easily block the search for unwanted sites (including P2P related).

I got HighID often IF I connected to a Chinese eD2K server. I can't help you with that now since I am not aware of Chinese server.met providers. The only thing I can say is that I gave you the most reliable. Your 58.31.x.x IPs are not in IPFilter so it is OK (58.32.x.x are in IPFilter).

I worked many times as LowID as well but at high speeds, no problem. Better than office, I tried eMule at office few times with no connection at all but I gave up, I was not looking for trouble with big Chinese company.

BTW, the same happened to me few months ago:

I do not install eMule versions, I just copy the new executables (exe, dll, etc.) and non-config files (jpg, hlp, txt,...) over the previous version... and for the first time the eMule decided re-hash 4500 files (it took half day long)... I lost 7 years history of upload requests/acceptance and original download date of all these files. It never happened with other versions no matter config I had.

I miss China so much... if you have a job for a laowai there... I'm your man.

That was the connection before I upgraded to my cable connection however I remember my friend who works for Sohu saying that the government made an edict about a year and a half ago to shut down P2P in China. I think their approach is to do something that results in everyone having a Low ID... and as you know... eMule will not connect a Low ID to a Low ID.

Ironically, this is to protect the Chinese film industry. They don't give a rat's ass about the western film industry since our low IDs will connect to High IDs in the rest of the world.

I am starting my 9th year here. I remember that.

Just last week, they got a little stringent with the hacker crowd and shut down about 50 organized hacker groups. I think this might have had something to do with the Google incident. Although it sounds like a 'conspiracy theory', this is a country where conspiracy theories are most often real. I put my money on there being a real hack from within China but NOT ot the hands of the government. (Or maybe it was and this is a smoke screen) I'll bet that as a face saving measure, the government made some concessions in secret.

None the less, I think it may be hard to find alternate DNS Servers. (Even if I did know what the Chinese would be for a DNS Search.

I am working between 100Kb and 200Kb on a Low ID. My problem is that a lot of the obscure files I am trying for are partially only available from Low ID sources. I have a lot of unfinished sources that won't budge because of my status.

I did that however due to my slip up with installing it to have each user use his personal directory, a lot of those files were ignored. (I went from 49c to 50a on emule then copied Xtreme 8 over the top ... then copied back my config files)

I ran for three weeks like this and THEN noticed the problem. eMule threw a fit and lost a drive when I redirected back to the Program Files version of the config directory. (Had to be my 2Tb one)

I since went forward and decided to do a rehash of them all ... at least all the ones I have live... all 4,200. (I'll deal with the other 1Tb on a peace meal basis when I get re-post requests)

Have you tried installing and "running as admin" ?

Right Clickl>Run as Admin>Install.

Unless of coarse it is a binary version (as I remember using something like that once in the past) and then just simply Right Click>Run as Admin.

Just throwing out a suggestion. :-|

You probably have a different IP. Example:

Your home PC: 192.168.1.100
Your laptop: 192.168.1.101

You have your router set to forward the ports for your PC IP, but not your laptop IP. Open up the command prompt and run "ipconfig /all" to see what IP your laptop is.

Hi, how would I go about port forwarding. Sorry if this sounds stupid, but I am only semi computer literate.
I have a PC that was originally set up with the router and some version of eMule (not sure which I hardly use the PC anymore) and a newer laptop.

I have eMule v050a and a Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC router.

I was able to permit my firewall (thanks to this thread) and now I am properly connected to the Kad network which helped up my download speeds by 500%, but still I get low id for the ED2K network and servers. I input the standard recommended port numbers 4262, and 4272 but when I tested the ports nothing doing. And I wouldn't begin to know how to start to forward the ports.

would appreciate it very much if you could help.
thanks very much

hi Robbo7.I used a site called portforward and it runs through everything you need in simple terms but to be honest if you have a good kad connection thats the main thing as lots of people dont even bother with servers.
hope this helps :)

Weird, I have done just what I said in my earlier post but did not get around to port forwarding. And one day out of nowhere I got high ID. Maybe the port numbers and firewall were the only problem after all.
Anyway, thanks poison 13.

Problem solved!!

I made a system restore point a few days ago, so I went back in time to see if my emule and FW get along for a change(:
and they actually DID!
(kinda)
So in the end it seems I was using the Comodo "firewall" mode and not the "internet security" mode. The emule rules were exactly the same, but the firewall's "global" rules are different. anyways it works now. not the edonkey server no2 though - that one still disconnects after a few minutes, but as you mentioned earlier, this is its normal behavior these days..
"Share islands" also gave me similar disconnections, but PEERATES.NET goes smooth at least for the last 6 hours, so I'll stick with what works(:

Thanks for your support, and I hope my mule will have a long and healthy life, yours too(:

I dont know if this will help anyone, but Ive had lowid issues with my new computer. This time we had some people come stay with us and they connected 4 different devices to our wifi, and even though Ive got a specific IP address assigned to mine, somehow there was a conflict and in my internet connection properties all the information had gone back to "detect automatically". So I still had a connection but low id. I changed these back, and using Windows 7 there is something strange that has happened twice. The gateway address had disappeared and even though I had put all the info in correctly, I had to go back into properties to put this value back in. Now back to high id.

Just wanted to say thanks thanks for the great lowid related tutorials - I finally managed to crack the nut this morning. I assume a bunch of the contributing writers are doing clinic hours, so thought I would post my gratitude here.

Don't turn your firewall off, just go into its settings and open the ports you need

4) I am not sure how to confirm this but I believe logging in with the router is not the problem
Can you connect the Internet cable from the Router directly into your computer or is that not possible with FIOS?

also, I take it you have done this:
Start (Windows XP) > Control Panel > Windows Firewall | Firewall On with "don't allow exceptions" disabled (unchecked) | Exceptions tab has eMule in it and it is allowed (checked)

Do you have another pc connected to router ?

Open command prompt and write "ip config/all" to see all ip addresses on your pc / second pc.

Check ip address of your pc network adapter or adapters (if you have more than one).

I think that usb network adapter is problem because it doesn't appear in network connections page.
There must be some kind of conflict.

If you have two or more computers than each pc need different static ip address.
And ports in router need to be routed (assigned) to specific pc.

I believe I have the usb network card plugged in, but it does not appear on my network connections page.

Hi, i used to get low id on emule for like years until one day i decided to play around with settings. Tools ===> emule first time run wizard===>next===> leave your alias as is no ticks===>next leave tcp and udp===> click===>Use UpnP to setup Ports. you must let pc fully boot and settle before starting emule and once you use UpnP to setup Ports
it will say succesfull or fail if fail exit emule let pc sit bit longer then redo it again and hopefully it should work everytime like it does for me. i have same isp since low id for years. hope it helps I used norton internet security and check firewall allows access to program on windows and norton firewall. No more low id for me ever :). i used to get max 3-4 kbs now max total is almost 1mbs (cable)not saying this is what you will get, it will increase heaps.
