I've compiled the Litecoin source using a custom genesis block to create a simple Altcoin for fun.
I just have some questions about Bitcoin/Litecoin Qt.
- When I mine a block using the
generatecommand, Litecoin Qt doesn't seem to inform any of its peers, either that or the peers aren't picking up the mined block. Does anyone know why?
- I modified the DNS seeds to use my own domain name instead of Litecoin's, except Litecoin Qt can't seem to use my domain name to find nodes. The domain just returns a list of A records pointing to potential peers. Have I set that up correctly?
- Litecoin Qt also can't seem to download the blocks from it's peers the first time it launches, does anyone know why?
- The blockchain based on my custom genesis block doesn't seem to sync, does anyone have any idea why?
I haven't modified any of the source code apart from changing the genesis block.
I have Litecoin Qt on my local machine and two VPS's hosting two nodes. My first thought was that maybe I need more than two full nodes to get things working?
