Do you have a router? Is so, you need to map some ports.

I believe you have to map port 6346 for incoming and outgoing connections for shareaza to work. I have had problems with Shareaza and XP SP2, there are work-arounds, but they require a download from LVLord. After all that, it still might not work for you. Plus, it opens you up for virus infections.

For me, Shareaza has worked better than any other P2P software. I found that everyone has their own experiences and preference for 1 package over another. The shareaza website has their own discussion forum that is probably much better at helping you tweak shareaza than we are here.

Shareaza>Network Configuration Issues>Routers.

They have a great forum for Shareaza issues.

You can also go here:

http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm

then pick your router from the list.
(If you already brand of your router, hit CTRL+F, then type the brand, it will help shorten the search).
Then once you pick your router, pick which programs you want to port-foward. They have pretty large list, including shareaza. As well as any games you play and what not.

Once you know how to configure your browser to port-foward, you can search google for different programs you have that you would like to port-foward, that are not on the list.
