Recently we have been alerted to issues where wallets are not able to establish connections to the network and therefore unable to sync with the GOSSIP COIN network.
NOTE: You not need "addnode=" in your configuration file! Use the peers.dat
I've done this and its still not working:
If this fails to resolve the issue then its likely some local software (Antivirus/Firewall) is causing connection issues. Please add the wallet software to the list of exceptions on the AV/Firewall.
