Thumbs down Frostwire thinks it's behind a firewall

Hi,

I just installed the net-p2p/frostwire port (version 4.17.0), but it seems to think it's behind a firewall as it displays the little world-with-brick-wall icon next to its connection status in the bottom left corner.

I tried several changes in my setup, but to no avail. These changes include:
Enable UPnP in my router and setup frostwire to use it.
Port forwarding.
Discarding the router altogether, connecting the box directly to the internet.

In any case, the brick-wall icon remains, and frostwire just can't connect to the network.

I'm using java 1.6, installed from the java/diablo* ports (both the JRE and the JDK are installed).

Anyone managed to get frostwire 4.17.0 to connect to the network successfully?

I've never tried frostwire, but if you're willing to give another BT client a go, I highly recommend net-p2p/transmission. It's easy to use, has few dependencies, and handles NAT traversal intelligently.

IIRC, the meta-port will allow you to select gtk2 or CLI version and configuration time.

FrostWire appears to be an open source clone of LimeWire, both being Gnutella clients written in Java.

According to Wikipedia, they each have some level of support for BitTorrent.. so the confusion is understandable.

There are lighter clients available for both protocols, why anyone would use a bloated Java application is beyond me.

Aha - thanks for clarifying. Well if it's a gnutella client you need (or all of the above), DrumScum, then ignore my comment.
