I have had bitcoin for a little bit now. It has been going very smoothly. I have set up 3 accounts for various activities, privacy, and security reasons. I now can not get all of the block chain. When I go to download more of the block chain it just sits at 175408. I have been at it for hours. When I first got bitcoin it worked perfectly, but now even after reinstalling the bas** it is still stuck there, and my total connections went from eight to a one. If anybody has any suggestions on to what the problem could be I would be grateful.
Maybe the client is having a hard time finding peers. If you close it and remove the addr.dat then restart, it will go through the dnsseed process again.
This question has been asked a few times before:
- I didn't receive a Bitcoin Payment. What does it mean when the Client is synchronizing?
- What can I do when the blockchain synchronization is stuck at a specific block?
- Bitcoin client 0.4.1.1 stuck at block 176947
Is there anything in the answers of those that helps?
