Make the connection test
For this connection test to work, you must have
Shareaza running. If it's not running already, start it and make it connect to
the networks. (It doesn't matter if it connects successfully or not, it's
enough if it's trying.) Then enter Shareaza's port number in the box below and
click on 'Test'.
Your IP is 184.108.40.206.
Your proxy is 220.127.116.11.
How to tell what port Shareaza uses?
If you don't know which port Shareaza uses,
then switch to Shareaza and open the settings dialog by selecting
from the menu Tools
. Then on the left
panel click on Internet > Connection
and look at the
field on the right. This is the port number that Shareaza uses.
A note about proxy servers
If you have a proxy server enabled in your
browser's settings, then it's possible that this connection test will not be
able to find out the IP of your computer. If it fails to detect a proxy, it
will test the proxy's IP, instead of yours, which of course will not work.
Disable your proxy temporarily to make this test.
Should I enable 'Long timeout'?
Usually, this is not necessary. By default,
this test will wait for 5 seconds for the TCP and UDP tests, to see if things
work as expected. Usually, this should be enough, but if your computer is very
stressed, very busy or if you have an unreliable internet connection, it might
take more time for Shareaza to properly respond to the test, in which case 5
seconds may not be enough. If you enable the long timeout, the test will wait
for 10 seconds. Obviously, the test will then take longer to complete.
