Quix 1.01, Avalaunch 0.49.1 Build 61

Last week I was getting on average 2000 KB/s

Today (after updating Win XP to SP2) I am luck to break 150 KB/s.

It's taking forever to send files over.

I have tried disabling the new firewall, but does not make a difference in speed. I know some older firewalls still caused problems even if disabled (BlackIce I think?) .. is this SP2 the same way?

NOTHING has changed in the way everything is hooked up, so I have nothing else to blame but SP2.

Anyone else experience this?

Anyone have any ideas?

Wouldnt surprise me if it is something MS did deliberatly
and targeted to xbox connections if not QWIX in particular.

You have to be kidding me right?

You can't honestly think that with a straight face right?

Do you think MS would put out SP2 (or any part of it) just to screw up Quix/Xbox transfers...?

I have some ocean front property for sale up here in Alberta if you are interested man.

well, i've determined that it has something to do with the new windows firewall that's built into service pack 2. i disabled the firewall and i was able to transfer files just like i had been prior to installing the service pack. not sure what it could be doing though to block it, i told the firewall not to block Qwix.

I know it is the firewall.

I can transfer, but not as fast (100 KB/s compared to 2000 KB/s).

Guess we are alone, or no one else has noticed it.

I've got the exact same problem. Disabling the firewall or allowing Qwix full access won't work sad.gif.

This kinda sucks, I like leaving the firewall on as I need my machine to be the DMZ against my router - it boggles the mind that adding QUIX.EXE to the exclusion list doesn't do the job though - doesn't Quix just use regular FTP Client ports, or does it do something wacky that I'll have to open a port for?

I've been having the exact same problem, but unfortunately turning off the XP Firewall didn't do the trick. (In fact it has been turned off since about 2 seconds after I installed SP2) I even tried just disabling the Windows Firewall service, but that didn't do the trick either.

The "Test Connections" button still works, and Ava shows "1 User Load" but I get a big fat 0.0KB/s.

LeechFTP seems to be working OK, but losing that extra extraction step is why I started using Ava/Qwix in the first place.

I have xp sp2 and avalunch 0.49.1 and have no issues with it. My average speed is about 4200kbps.

I do have the firewall disabled as the windows one is garbage. I don't know why, but for some reason I had to disable it twice. I disabled it originally through the shield icon that goes on your tray when you first install sp2, then it still seemed to be running so I disabled it through the Windows Firewall option in the control panel.

It really is a mystery to me why it's not working. Qwix + AVA won't work. Qwix + UnleashX works fine, and LeechFTP + AVA works fine.


Therefore it must be something to do with the combination of Qwix and Avalaunch. I went back and tried previous versions of AVA and the problem persists. I have tried with the settings QWix autodetects, and with passive mode turned off, still no go. I also tried disabling boost mode in Avalaunch but had no success.

It may be worth mentioning that QWix does seem to be able to create the first directory, (ie f:\games\blah) but it locks directly after that.
