You wont any help for P2P probs here, as this forum dont allo willegal conduct, downloading via p2p is illegal! Only few legal ones!

"downloading via p2p is illegal" - how come? I was under the impression that the use of p2p filesharing programs is morally / legally neutral.

Using them to share copyrighted material is likely to be illegal but the use of p2p utilities per se cannot be illegal.

I too use or have used winmx and have recently found difficulty in getting connected for p2p. As for the illegality of it - we all know this - but as individuals I feel we are at liberty to utilise the facility offered and the silly bickering between posters should definitely be illegal also :)

here here jockym i totally agree with you so keep your big nose out
