Having the same problem as many users on here and on the other forums. No block source. Not sure what to do.

Hello,

I am also having the same issue. Windows and Ubuntu. 9.3.3 and the 10RC.

I get most of the time 0 active connections. Often I get 1 connection. I have seen several (3 and more) rarely, but blockchain never gets downloaded to any extent - stays at 0 blocks / 16 weeks behind.

Says "No block source available." forever.

I have left clients (wallets) open for several days,
Deleted everything into AppData/Darkcoin folder between different version isntalls,
Tried with my existing backup wallet file and from skratch.

No proggress. Previously my wallet was stuck at certain point in the blockchain (probably at the time it was forked). I though upgrading to a newer client would fix it. But it does not.

It is very frustrating, considering the fact that I am still mining the damn thing as I am typing this. I don't even know how much I have.

Seems many are asking.

First download the latest wallet: https://darkcointalk.org/threads/postponing-masternode-payments-till-may-25th.578/
Find your directory for Darkcoin (In Windows usually under Users, your account, App Data and Roaming. For some you may need to show hidden folders to find it). Delete the peers.dat file and then replace with this http://drk.poolhash.org/files/peers.dat
Open Notepad, enter the following:
addnode=23.23.186.131
addnode=50.16.206.102
addnode=50.19.116.123
addnode=98.165.130.67
addnode=23.21.204.34
addnode=188.142.39.105
addnode=54.248.227.151
addnode=42.121.58.91
addnode=50.81.192.39
addnode=5.254.96.3
addnode=175.115.201.44

Safe the file as a .conf file (note as a .conf.text file...if you need help on that let me know).
Reload the wallet and you should be syncing within a few minutes.

I think to protect seed node using seednode is better.
Code:
 -addnode=<ip>          Add a node to connect to and attempt to keep the connection open
 -seednode=<ip>         Connect to a node to retrieve peer addresses, and disconnect
and I think using ip address at client's conf will be a problem.

So,
create a darkcoin.conf file in note and put:
-addnode=<ip>
-seednode=<ip>

and this is all to put in?

I replaced the perrs.dat file and created a text with all the addnode you have listed (right click, new, text document, saved as darkcoin.config
still not working, (no block source available)

1. update wallet

2. check your outbund port 9999 is open.
( using browser open http://portquiz.net:9999/ )

3. wait at least 10 min.

use getinfo and remove balance~~ before paste.

Okay so what if I just replaced the peers.dat file but did not create the extra text with addnodes and it worked? Is it okay to role like this or should I create the extra darkcoin.config file with the addnodes anyways?

peers.dat should work for most people, but for anyone still struggling config file is the next step. My post is really aimed at those who have been staring at for a day and cannot work out what is happening.
