On the Winmx site, they ask you if you want to connect using a secondary connection or primary connection. Right now, the box for secondary connection is checked, but I need to change that to primary connection, and I haven't been able to do that. When I try to check the primary connection box, a message pops up saying that I can't use a primary connection. I don't see why I can't use primary connection because I have a DSL modem. They don't have any technical help on the Winmx site, but I wish they did. If someone knows who I can contact to get help with this, please contact me.:confused:

Unless I'm mistaken, you need to be able to send and recieve both TCP and UDP packets in order to use a primary connection. Check the port settings.

Thank you kramnnim for replying, but I don't understand your reply. I may not have made myself clear enough in my message. I want to know how I can change the checked box from the secondary box to the primary box on the Winmx page. I don't understand what you mean by the terms you used in your message. Could you explain it in more detail? I don't know very much about computer terminology, so you'll have to "dummy it up" for me and give me simple language. I would also like it if someone else would post a reply, with more simple, detailed instructions that I can understand.

try this-
open Winmx
goto Settings
select Internet connection- Incoming TCP connections-
check the box "listen on port......."
put 8800 in the box.
goto Internet connections- In/Out UDP Packets
check "send and receive UPD datagrams on port"
put 36000 in the box
close/ restart winmx
