Ok I think I have done everything I need to, there sould now be a stable node of this forums server for the peercoin network. Should your client fail to find any connections try typing in the command line:
For peercoin main net
For peercoin Testnet
let me know of any problems
Would you mind sharing the steps you went through to get it up and running? If it looks feasible, I’ll piggy back a node on to the Peercoin wiki installation so we have another “always up” and distributed node to hit
Well by running peercoind under mainnet and testnet and having a ppcoin.conf file set in your %app data%/ppcoin directory and %app data%/ppcoin/testnet directory … note the port u set for each and the IP of the server and port is what you see above.
There was talk in the past when i tried to do this for other clients from my local machine that u need to forward the port on your router… but some servers do not need this i believe.
I am a stepping out of my depth a little here as I may have missed something as I am not 100% sure about all I have done here and if it works… but if anyone can see the server IP as a node they are connected to then we are up and running Hope this helps… i’ll expand once / if this is working… again nice article title for devtome… “Setting up a stable node (for the peercoin network)” … just saying
