I am creating an altcoin, following a tutorial. The tutor skipped explaining setting up the DNS seeder.

How can I implement this code https://github.com/sipa/bitcoin-seeder ? Currently when I run ./mycoind (on my local machine) I get connection refused when trying to connect to the seeder defined in strMainNetDNSSeed

When I run ./dnsseed (on my vps) it does not run on port 8333 (actually 9333, I am using https://github.com/pooler/litecoin-seeder/ , a fork of the bitcoin seeder). Can anyone help?


DNS seeder runs on port 53 It crawls on p2p port of your coind which in your case is 9333. Click this link for further instruction.
