[lug] gnutella uploads not working ???

Since krud is based on redhat, I'm guessing the installation enabled the 
linux firewall.  As root, run "iptables --list" to see if any 
firewalling rules are turned on.  If not, you should get the following 

    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target     prot opt source               destination

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    target     prot opt source               destination

    Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target     prot opt source               destination

If you get something more, the firewall is on, and you'll have to either 
configure it to allow what you want, or disable it completely.  I think 
RedHat should have a nice GUI firewall tool that would do either.
