I'm using blockchain2graph tool to import the Bitcoin blockchain into Neo4j. It uses JSONRPC calls to read block data. For this, I have to have the bitcoind service running. Is it possible to disable the update of the blockchain while bitcoind is running?

I use the cmdline and I've tried -proxy= and -debugexclude=proxy options but it continuously outputs connect() to failed after select(): Connection refused. I don't want this output either.


You can tell bitcoind to have 0 connections using:

bitcoind -maxconnections=0
