If you have been following this tutorial step by step then you will now be connected to the WinMX Peer Network using a secondary connection. When you connect to the network using a secondary connection this is only made possible because of all the primary users on the network. You are connecting as a secondary connection through another WinMX user who is connected as a primary connection. A primary connection on WinMX is the backbone of the WinMX Peer network so we try and encourage all WinMX users, if you are able to make a primary connection then please do connect as a primary connection. We will also provide you one to one help if you require help to setup WinMX up as a primary connection...

Before you can run a primary connection you must have the right settings setup...

Click on the “Settings” button found at the top of your WinMX client...

Select "Internet Connection" and then select your connection type (Connection type unknown or slower than Cable, DSL, T1, T3, may not be able to use a primary connection). If you don’t know what your connection type is then I suggest you visit, whatismyipaddress.com:
