  • I assume you are using Windows Live OneCare. Try turning off the OneCare firewall temporarily to see if this resolves the problem. If so, you may need to contact Limewire support to determine if additional ports and/or protocols need to be allowed besides allowing the program itself.

    You can also contact OneCare support.
