Soul Seek

I have noticed this past week that soulseek and it's website have been down for me and my brother...I'm wondering if it has been permanently shut down or not?

do you get a server temporarily down message, something to do with your dns lookup or something like that?

here you go. take ntoe it didn't work for me, but it's the easiest way apparently. big ups, as ali g would say, to my man u2popmofo.

-Find your hosts file,
in Windows XP it is C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
in Windows 2000 it is C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
I'm not sure what it is in 98/ME/95.

Now open the file with Notepad.
Add these four lines to the very bottom of the file:

38.115.131.131 sk2.slsk.org
38.115.131.131 www.slsk.org
38.115.131.131 mail.slsk.org
38.115.131.131 server.slsk.org

I did this, and was immediately able to go on Soulseek again.


This link will provide more info if you need it.

i had to do the same thing for 98, only my drivers file wasn't where it was supposed to be and i had to look for it, and then set things so i could change the extenstions, cos drivers wasn't supposed to have a file extension (thanks mofo for the help with that)

Could someone please help me. I can't get it to work for Win98. I've tried the Soulseek forum but it's difficult to find answers amongst the bitching and slagging!!
