i have installed Bitcoin Core 0.15.1 on my computer. I also made a Port Forwarding for Port 8333 and gave my Computer a static IP Adress. My computer stats are: Intel Core i5 3.30GHz AMD Radeon R9 380 Series 232 GB Samsung SSD 750 EVO 250GB 1863 GB Seagate HDD 16 GB RAM

But i have the problem, that de Core do not connect with the Network. (Left on the Bottom always stands "connecting to peers". But nothing happens. I waited 5 hours and there still stands "connecting to peers". But the Peer Tab(you can see in the picture) there are some peers connected i think. In the Debug File there are two Fails:

ProcessMessages(ping, 8 bytes) FAILED ProcessMessages(getaddr, 0 bytes) FAILED

What can i do? Can someone help me?

  • Are you using Bitcoin Core with all default configuration or some custom options? If you could edit your question to explain it would be helpful. – Willtech Feb 9 '18 at 11:14
  • @Willtech thanks for the fast answer. I am running it with deufault configuration. – tombrausla Feb 9 '18 at 13:40
  • If you click on a peer in the Peers window you have posted a screenshot of, do any of the peers say that they are Outbound or, do all of them say that they are Inbound? – Willtech Feb 10 '18 at 6:59
