The operation of WinMX seems to be getting worse with time. In the last few days, the number of file transfer failure by uplaod users that says "connection refused" has increased dramatically.

Is this the first indications of things changing on WinMX, or is there something else at work? I get the feeling that time may be coming closer to the last throws like Napster. This was the kind of strange things that started to show up on Napster when the court system started to kick in the doors.

Use to be able to have others load mp3 files from me with no problem. I have also seen a greater number of download failures of files that others have listed. When you start a down load, it will fail for one reason or another.

Any and all input will be welcome.

Hiya and welcome

Take a look at this thread. Ignore the rest about routers, unless you're using one:

I wouldn't worry about the ones downloading from you, as its all about getting the files you want. Dog eat dog :p

Most people tweak their settings, like the above link does. Everyone wants their's to download faster

What I usually do, when I boot WinMX up, is rightclick on all files, and Search Alternatives. Then, wander off for 10 mins or so, come back, and set them all to download from the Search. That way, you can get more scources, as people keep changing the file names.

Regards
