I am building an altcoin using the litecoin source code.
I have removed all of the Emplace Seed calls in chainparams.cpp for DNS seeding, changed my default node communication port to port 421 and commented out all of the baked in seed nodes from chainparamsseeds.h, even added the dnsseed=0 and seed=0 to my config file and deleted my peers.dat before launching the core daemon, yet I still see clients connecting to my VPS for all different kinds of coins and swiftly ending up banned.
What am I missing? I can't find a single reason why these peers are connecting to my VPS.. Though it's not the end of the world because it has latched to my chain and only syncs blocks/headers with my other nodes, it looks very unprofessional. Any help would be appreciated!
