SP2 & eMule

Has anyone been experiencing difficulties with eMule after installing XP SP2?
After installing SP2, I found that I could download all the files I had queued on eMule, but I couldn't search for other files. eMule sends an error saying my client is either too old or is having erratic network behaviour.

Anyone else?

It's not the same client, but I have eDonkey2000 running on an XP SP2 system with no problems.  Maybe that helps you...

Nope, haven't had any problems.  Check your firewall settings to see if ports 4662 and 4672 are being blocked.  The Windows firewall is turned on by default in SP2.

Apparently, SP2 has a new "security feature" that limtis the number of TCP connections and this is affecting most P2P programs

Why don't you just go buy some music instead of pirating it.

You just don't get that James Bond feeling when you go to <insert over-priced chain store here>.

And I don't want to be seen carrying "Incredible Boobs" out of <insert over-priced chain store here>.

It's working fine here, but I turned off the SP2 firewall and use Kerio instead. Much better.

> Why don't you just go buy some music instead of pirating it.

Accusing everyone who uses P2P software of piracy is like accusing everyone who drives a car of speeding: the majority do, sure, but not everyone.  Your assumption is therefore unjustified and insulting.

Although everbody knows everybody do.

Turning off the firewall also worked wonders for me.
