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
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=127.0.0.1:9050 - no effect :(
Pls help - how do I make bitcoind to connect to peers?
