    I cant get my soulseek working. I tried to follow the steps in the other topic but it didnt work. Im using windows ME and this is exactly what I did.
    Tell me what I did wrong:
    Clicked start, clicked search, searched for hosts.
    Opened hosts in notepad ( hosts was located at C:\WINDOWS )
    Changed it to the following:

    # Copyright © 1998 Microsoft Corp.
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP stack for Windows98
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    # For example:
    # # source server
    # # x client host localhost

    That is exactly how the page looks. Anybody see whats wrong with it and why I still cant connect to Soulseek?
    Thanks alot for any help.

    Go HERE to get the fix for the problem.

    Here is what it says:

    A temporary DNS fix client is available HERE. I recommend you backup your *.cfg files before you install this, just in case. If clicking directly on the link doesn't work, try right-clicking it and selecting "save...", that should do the trick.
