    i have run limewire on my windows vista supported laptop before, but i have
    recently moved away to college and now i use the campus supported internet
    connection. when i try to open and use my limewire it doesnt fully connect,
    only showing one bar and stating "still connecting". the globe next to the
    bars states that limewire is behind a firewall, i have taken off all
    firewalls and added limewire to my firewall exempt list and i still get the
    same thing. the only thing left to do it says is to contact my system
    administrator...i need help, music is my life..

    The systems administrator at your college campus has probably locked the
    network down to prevent users accessing P2P applications such as Limewire.
    You would need to ask the college IT department if they have such policies
    in place.

    It is unlikely that they would allow any exceptions.
