I've installed bitcoind as said:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoin-qt

Then I started server, running bitcoind -daemon

But initial block download doesn start for some reason. When I call bitcoin-cli getblockchaininfo verificationprogress is always 0.0000000

On my local machine everything went well and seems that I have to fix network settings to be able to run bitcoin on remote server at collocation. But I have now Idea what to fix and where to look. I've searched google all the way up and down, I've tried setting proxy= - no effect :(

Pls help - how do I make bitcoind to connect to peers?

  • Can you look at debug.log? Do you see it making connection attenpts at al? Do they fail or timeout? – Pieter Wuille Dec 27 '15 at 11:54
