Hey guys,

I have been running http://x11p2p.com:7903/static/ for the past few months, it's one of the most popular p2pools, normally with 200MH/s to 600Mh/s most of the time.

I Finally got around to updating to RC5.

Looks like that's running fine. But when I now start up the p2pool software, it's having connection problems.

This is what I get.

darkcoind has 8 connections currently. darkcoin.conf has 100 max connections set, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

Was there a new p2pool software released?

I have no experience with P2Pool, but did you already try to delete peers.dat in your .darkcoin folder? Maybe your darkcoind just banned your p2p-pool from connecting :)

Ahhh. Where can this be found? Thanks

This is one thing I hope we can improve on. Small things like this. I did do a quick search but didn't find anything usefil.

hey guys
ok (super nob question)

I have a guy on my chatroom who wants to set up a p2pool for the Asia region,
as he is saying it would be better that way than dealing with the US based once ?!
(he wants to run it out of Singapore)

As for details
https://bitbucket.org/dstorm/p2pool-drk.git
is giving him everything he needs to know and have ?!?

Tx
Dear tungfa,
Please use latest p2pool from
  1. https://github.com/vertoe/p2pool-drk
  2. https://github.com/vertoe/darkcoin_hash
  3. https://github.com/vertoe/darkcoin_subsidy
as vertoe created in https://darkcointalk.org/threads/p2pool-repository-and-python-modules.3380/

Since I'm running a p2pool server, here is my pointers
- no need for sudo , sudo only for install python modules.
- 2015-02-16 18:38:44.494319 ...taking a while. Common reasons for this include all of bitcoind's connection slots being used...
This is about checking darkcoind 's param , listen=1 and maxconnections value.
- Other error from RECV inv ....
I currently ignore this error, the server still keep running fine just drop connection everytime from this error. ( I fixed my code to just ignore this error and not disconnect)
