I have just started up my client GUIMiner for the first time. It was downloading the block chain without any issue and got up to 99% where it has been stuck for the past 1 to 1.5 hours.

Is this normal behavior?

  • No, it is not normal. Which client, and what version? Can you try shutting it down and restarting the app? – Stephen Gornick Apr 24 '12 at 18:53
  • Gotta love it when a port is blocked. I was using GUIMine which ought to add some connection timeout stuff. – SouthFresh Apr 24 '12 at 18:58

    @SouthFresh So, is this fixed? – BinaryMage Apr 26 '12 at 15:18
  • If it is fixed, you should answer your own question. If not, you should post more here so we can try to help. – Daniel H Aug 28 '12 at 5:08

Network issues were preventing this from completing.

  • I'm not sure I remember the blocked port. It's been a while. I"ll check through my settings. – SouthFresh Aug 28 '12 at 17:11
  • Well, as of now the answer doesn't even say anything about a blocked port. "Network issues" could be anything. – D.H. - bitcoin.se Aug 28 '12 at 18:39
