#28 Nothing happens when i press &quotrequest transfer&quot

Interface (53)

I search for some songs, mark one and press "request transfer" and nothing happens. I have tried many files from different people. Only once did the file actually get listed in the "transfer" dialog.

Can this be a networking error or is it just the interface which isnt working as it should?

I have BeOS R4.5.2. My network connection is through a linux box which acts as a IP Masquerading unit. I have ensured that the 6669 port is open for napster. Maybe there are some other ports which should be opened?

    Have you ever been able to successfully start a transfer?

    I have the exact same problem, napster works in linux and windows, no ports are open on the firewall.

    I am also having these same problems, and I am using NAT. This is all we have in common, but it looks like NAT is a real problem for this distribution. -Ray Haque (ray@upshq.com)

    I have successfully started a transfer, but only about four different times (out of hundreds of tries). I typically will search for an artist, and try to download every song. I usually only get about three answers and they all either 'dont answer', or give me that 'incompatable version'. The four or so songs I was able to get were all from Napigator servers. I dont think I have ever gotten a song right from Napster's server. Any clue why this might work fine in Windows, and terribly in BeOS? Could it be something outside of the Napster client (BeOS TCP/IP implimentation)? I don't know. I will leave the theory to the real geeks. :)
