      WinMx doesn't work correctly with Sky BB

      I have recently got Sky broadband. But unforutantely WinMx won't work properly. I can get on to it and do a search but don't get any results. WinMx is working as when my daughter uses her Waitrose connection on her computer the results for say Robbie Williams download fast but when she switches to the Sky broadband connection and puts Robbie Williams in then nothing comes up at all. She has tried this several tims and it's always the same. It's nothing to do with her wireless conneciton either as I have the Sky router on my computer and I cannot get any results either.

      Does anyone know what this could be? Have you experienced the same thing?

      Thanks

      Hi have you opened the ports on the router to allow it to connect to winmx and allow winmx in the routers firewall,if not do a quick search in this forum for port forwarding and that should solve your problem

      I found port forwarding for you try this

      open up winmx and make a note of the port used for incoming connections
      open up network connections on your PC
      double click local area network to open it
      click on the support tab
      make a note of the IP address
      log into the router
      select LAN IP setup
      click add under address reservation
      choose your PC (it will have the IP address you noted)
      click add then apply
      select services then add custom service
      type winmx, select both and put the port you noted in the first box, click apply
      select firewall rules and click add an inbound service
      add winmx, allow always, the IP address you noted, click apply
      check the enable box, click apply
