Feathercoin daemon and wallet production version 0.17.0.1

Wallets not syncing


  • newbies | Tip Sneekz

    Hi there!

    Both of my wallets - Mac and Windows 64 Bit - have not been able to sync. I read throgh 4-5 different threads and I tried addnode a few times. I don’t think my firewall is active on windows. Any help on how to sync?

    @Sneekz - Hello and welcome to the forums.

    Which version of Feathercoin are you using ? the latest version is 0.9.6 which can be downloaded from Feathercoin.com

    If you’re using 0.9.6 you can try this.

    1 - exit the Feathercoin-QT application
    2 - start the Feathercoin-QT application again
    3 - get to the debug console
    4 - type “addnode 104.129.57.113 add” (without the quotes)
    5 - verify the above node gets added with “getpeerinfo”

    Let us know how you get on.

    Also - is this not syncing from a new install ?

    Hi and welcome.

    Hi again! Thanks for your replies.

    As to the problem: I have done exactly what you have told me to do but it still does not work…
    It says “last mined block 5 years and 31 months old”.

    Another weird thing:

    If I try to go to configuration it gives me a runtime error and the program crashes.

    @Sneekz

    can you try this:

    1 - Windows Go to Start -> Run (or press WinKey+R) and run this: %APPDATA%\Feathercoin
    2 - back up your wallet.dat file
    3 - Delete everything in that folder, EXCEPT for the wallet.dat file
    4 - load the Feathercoin-QT software again.

    Hi, I will try this.

    Before I do though, the wallet.dat contains ALL data about my wallet right? I sent feathercoins to that adress yesterday not realizing I was synced off.

    Yes, the wallet.dat file is a small database that contains your public and corresponding private keys as well as your transactions.

    Please back up the wallet.dat file and keep it safe so you do not loose your coins
    I cannot comment on what “safe” is.

    Deleted everything except wallet.dat, reopened the programm. Both issues persist.

    are you 100% sure your firewall isn’t blocking the Feathercoin-QT application ?

    Do you still get the run-time error when you try to go preferences ?

    If any of our (new) members are following this thread…

    @Sneekz and I PM’d each other to discuss this issue further and make communication easier.

    It looks like the machine that’s being used is the culprit. There’s some odd behaviour with Feathercoin-qt automatically connecting to proxy 127.0.0.1:9050. There is no config file to specify a config and when you try to get to the “options/configuration” for Feathercoin-qt, the app crashes…I have the same operating system as @Sneekz and I was unable to reproduce the error/crash

    9050 is the old default port for tor

    I was able to overwrite the forced proxy config by specifying my own proxy IP:PORT and running Feathercoin-qt from cmd…unfortunately I could not find a working socks5 proxy.

    Going to do more digging and see.

    Couple of questions :

    What is the machine / hardware that (seems) to be causing the problem?

    In an emergency (needs to access funds), does it work in a Virtual Machine?


  • newbies | Tip Sneekz

    Hey again!

    I completely wiped my entire pc because i had been infected with some sort of rootkit.
    Feathercoin is starting to build up connections now, it should be resolved.

    thanks for the help @wrapper and especially @aciddude
