2) How to.... My %appdata%
-----------------------------------

2.1) CREATE <darkcoin.conf> FILE
---------------------------------
!!! ALWAYS !!! - CLOSE YOUR -Qt Wallet

From Windows Desktop.....
CLICK: START
TYPE: %appdata% (in the Search programs and files) <ENTER>
- Appdata directory should be open now.
- Navigate to darkcoin directory - CLICK

Create NEW TEXT Document.

COPY AND PASTE the following:

rpcuser=<any_user_name>
rpcpassword=<any_hard-PSW>
rpcallowip=*
rpcconnect=*
DNSSEED=1
testnet=0
rpcport=9999
addnode=54.186.169.204:9999
addnode=218.173.65.159:9999
addnode=87.121.52.39:9999
addnode=2.102.39.25:9999
addnode=54.88.143.232:9999
addnode=91.51.58.49:9999
addnode=188.226.252.28:9999
addnode=5.144.69.107:9999

SAVE THIS FILE AS A .CONF FILE AND NOT A TEXT FILE: <darkcoin.conf>

--------------------------------------------------------------

If you are having connective issues with DRK-Qt Wallet
- You can delete files in %appdata%darkcoin
- These file will be re-created the next time you run DRK-Qt Wallet

- Do the following, one at a time, until your -Qt Wallet syncs
- Opening and exiting the -Qt Wallet after each step
- Allow enough time for -Qt Wallet to sync (could take 10-20 min's) after each attempt
- If the -Qt Wallet does not sync, move to next step.

Before preceding, check your internet connection.
--------------------------------------------------------
1-Verify that you have to most up-to-date DRK -Qt Wallet
- If not download from: http://www.darkcoin.io/getstarted.html

2-Verify that you have the up-dated addnodes for your <darkcoin.conf> file.

Your connectivity issue should be fixed after step (2) or (3)
If issues persist, be very careful in proceeding thru the steps

3- Delete: <peers.dat>

4- Delete: <darkcoin.conf> and <peers.dat>

5- Re-build a new <darkcoin.conf> with new/up-dated addnodes AND - Delete: <peers.dat>

6- Delete: Everything in the %appdata%darkcoin EXCEPT FOR: new <darkcoin.conf> and <wallet.dat> or any-other wallet files
- This will force you to re-install the entire BlockChain

If you get past Step (6) and your still not connected, seek alternative assistance.

BEWARE - Do not forget your Encryption PSW

BEWARE - Do not delete your wallet.dat file

***AND BACK-UP wallet.dat FILE OFTEN***

U usually don't want this in your config:
rpcallowip=*
rpcconnect=*​
Do you?
I listed this as a "general" recomenndation
This can be removed if your not going to solo-mine.

rpcallowip=*
rpcconnect=*
Would allow for any connection.

This would be better, depending on your intranet set up and whatever it is your trying to do.
For remote solo-mining
rpcallowip=192.168.0.*
rpcconnect=192.168.0.*

For same machine solo-mining
rpcallowip=localhost
rpcconnect=localhost


Hope that helps...
