I have this issue 3-4 days now, and it keeps repeating itself. So I start the testnet and blocks are downloading, but when it goes to a specific block it stops responding.

Can someone tell me what to do?

This is the last 50 lines from my testnet3/debug.log:

I noticed that it stops arbitrarily in any block above 55K and below 59K

Sometimes Testnet acts flaky when new releases are being tested although I don't know if anything is going on currently. Are you running 12.2? You could try compiling the `develop` branch (12.3) and running that.

I am running 12.2.3 Mac OSX version. Can you provide instructions on how to compile the develop branch in the link?

@jk404 have you tried this on a different computer or network connection? I just managed to sync testnet with Dash 12.2.3 under Windows with a very flaky internet connection, no problems. Regarding compiling for macOS, you can download a pre-compiled developer build of 12.3 from https://bamboo.dash.org/ but there are no guarantees that these builds work.

You could also try to get yourself unstuck by typing the following in "Tools > Debug console" to see where you are getting stuck:

Code:
getinfo
Read out your current blockheight from the "blocks" entry, then use a testnet block explorer (here or here) to find the hash of that block or the immediately previous block. Then reconsider that block:

Code:
reconsiderblock <blockhash>

I think the owners of the faucets also have no tDASH. You could start mining on testnet and donate your rewards to the faucets, the block reward is currently 22.5 tDASH

@strophy thanks for your support, appreciated. I have tried in a super fast connection with my Mac and had the similar issue. I switched to my linux laptop right now, testnet is about to get totally synced having gone away from the previous problem except from the fact that it seems to by syncing headers forever while I see the "Overview" and feedback is: 19 seconds behind, 28 seconds behind, 36 seconds behind, 3 seconds behind, etc but it is out of sync and is doing rounds along these 'seconds' values.

Yeah, I got that yesterday as well - the blocks synchronise, but the headers don't for some reason, possibly due to ongoing testing of 12.3 governance functions. I also read in the dev channel that testnet may have forked and some people are on the wrong chaintip - one chain is longer, but the other has higher difficulty. Probably due to someone using an ASIC miner on testnet, which is probably also where all the tDASH went ;) Lucky these issues appear on testnet first, that's why we have it after all. Keep watching or come and join us on Discord at dashchat.org for updates, I suspect devs will do something to fix this sooner or later.

Thank you, any updates on synchronising the headers, the issue still remains and I really want to proceed with this, what can I do?
