I had the same problem. I tried for ages, downloading Ares again, changing things. I finally gave up and downloaded LimeWire. That works OK. I did like Ares, but it was not worth the hassle to me.

Yes,I too have had nothing but trouble trying to get Ares to connect.I've left it running for DAYS before,and still nothing.I have tried all of the newer version also.
The ONLY version that worked for me(windows XP with SP3) WAS and IS version 2.
I have tried SO many fixes and tricks,to no avail.
Get version 2 that is post here,and use that one.
And btw...thanks to Rayados for that info.
I used to have the setup for version 2,but my system crashed the other day,so I had to buy a new HD and start over.
Also...I too am on a wireless laptop,and Ares,V. 2 is connected and working right now.

Thanks!

I took the advise from the guy above and it worked fro me.


"go into the control pannel and click on transfer, theres a box saying what port to use. delete that number then close ares down. then reload ares and a different port number would have been found. then ares will start working."

I have the same thing, Ares 2.1.1, and I keep getting "connecting" but it wont connect. Not one of the replies on this site has worked for me. I am pulling my hair out here. It worked fine last week, now it dont. What can I do?
0
I tried everything listed. Uninstalling and reinstalling, disconnecting and reconnecting, removing all default connection options, all of it. The only thing that worked for me was going into the control panel, clicking on the 'transfer' tab, finding the box with the port number, deleting that number, closing Ares and restarting. Good luck, this is the only thing that worked for me.

i have another problem
the only way the latest version of ares connects on my pc is when I delete the port number it found by itself.the moment I delete that,it goes online.it now seems to be a manual override all the time.any suggestions?
0
Well I've tried everything and I got fed up so I decided to try frostwire. It didn't connect either but unlike ares there was a message saying it detected a firewall. I let it through my windows firewall but its still saying theres a firewall so I just need to find that firewall (i didnt even know about it...)

I had the same problem, tried everything that everyone said and it still didn't work. Finally, when I was browsing for a different filesharing program, I ran into an about.com page which redirected me here http://freewarecentral.net/ares-211/?gclid=CLuZ64nP2JsCFSgYa­godElbxAA
this is ares 2.1, the only difference between this one and earlier versions is the internet browser. When you download it, it will come up as something else (because it is bundled with crap). Just let it finish downloading, and then uninstall the program that was bundled with it. It should connect immediately.

I found it go to transfer section hit locate file, find any song double click on it to play it and bang, connected!

This is the solution that worked for me after years of mystery, if you dont mind im gonna re post it and add my thang...

Hi, had same problem when I reloaded windows os,just says connecting and thats all,but as luck would have it. I had my shared folder on a second drive,not on the default ares folder I do this to have more space for my downloads.What happens is as soon as I changed folder from ares default to my second drive,which of course I named ares shared folder,restarted ares and as soon as it started loading my downloads ares connected online,tried this with my mates pc,taking my drive to his pc,dragging and dropping into his newly created ares shared folder,again not ares default,and ares connected onlline,only tried this the two times,hope it works for you.


I have a portable so I d/c`ed ares went to my portable hd and created a ` my sharing folder` folder, went to ares changed the default dir to h/my sharing folder, tried to connect again and it connected within 3 seconds. the only thing that worked. I am using 2.1.1. or something like that, the latest one anyway

I have a similar problem on my computer, but with one slight difference: Ares will work on ONE user account, the account that was active when it was originally installed. First it was my sister's account, wouldn't work on any others, then we had our computer's hard drive wiped, and it was installed through my account, and now I am the only one who can connect. Re-installing the program with another account didn't change anything, either. I've checked all the settings in the different accounts, but as far as I can see, there are no differences, just that in one account it works, in another it inexplicable doesn't.

If your user account is not the one that had installed ares on your computer for the first time, try borrowing the user account that did. Might work, might not, I have no idea.
