  • Looks like his wallet is not connecting to peers. Without downloading the blockchain from those peers the wallet will not show any balance.

    Make sure a firewall is not blocking access to port 3888 TCP outgoing. Then use the addnode command to request connection to the peers at these IP addresses:

    The correct response is “null”, and then the wallet will try for a minute or two to connect with each one. The command getconnectioncount will show progress.

    addnode 35.197.138.163:3888 add
    addnode 35.195.206.119:3888 add
    addnode 120.77.44.105:3888 add
    addnode 35.200.159.68:3888 add
    addnode 73.143.249.155:3888 add
    addnode 35.226.31.206:3888 add
    addnode 35.200.130.53:3888 add
    addnode 35.192.54.161:3888 add
    addnode 35.189.91.155:3888 add
    addnode 35.231.140.221:3888 add
    addnode 96.56.60.146:3888 add
    addnode 45.32.27.157:3888 add
    addnode 59.6.70.65:3888 add

    Then wait 5 to 10 minutes to see if these stick.



  • The addnode commands worked. Thank you!



  • @metakong, that's good. After the wallet establishes peer connections, it saves those details in the peers.dat file and so restarts work much better. Cheers!
