I can confirm. Before I created a 'user' I was able to share my yacy search as a peer. Since creating a user I'm not a peer anymore just a user... which essentially defeats the purpose of a peer-to-peer search engine! Now I have to go fiddle with port forwarding on my router? The appeal of YACY was that it --appeared-- to be doing good for the web --easily--. Now, not so much.

I did a test today and my site works from Paris.
I have just had to Whitelist my IP with http://www.projecthoneypot.org/ [^] to restore Yacy's external web interface in the US.
Seems to have fixed the unable to connect error on http://www.webpagetest.org. [^]
