  1. Hi,
    I am getting this error while using azeureus.
    I have just installed NORTON ANTI VIRUS on my machine.

    I was able to use it before that.

    The error is
    "Listen server socket on [/ 12218] does not appear to be accepting inbound connections. [connection refused : connect]
    auto-repairing listen service...."
    Pls help.

    Norton or some other firewall is blocking that port.

    Port number. The port is a pathway to communicate information from the internet to a software application. Go to options of Azeureus and find and remember the port number it's using, then go into Norton and make an exception, a rule, or whatever it is they call it that allows basically unrestricted access to that port number. Then azeureus should work if it worked before you installed Norton.
