Waiting for network online

Just downloaded the reddcoin wallet for Windows, running on Windows 10 Home edition

I have port 45444/tcpudp open, I have UPnP enabled, I have disabled my Windows Firewall. None of this appears to help.

The debug.log file is spammed every second with:

2017-06-29 12:07:41 ReddcoinStaker : Waiting for network online.
2017-06-29 12:07:42 ReddcoinMiner : Waiting for network online.

Any idea on how to fix this so that I can actually use the program and stake/mine?

Here’s more output from the debug log on startup of the application:

cetanu try stopping your wallet and deleting the peers.dat.
I have been doing some work on the dnsseed these last days

Woohoo! That did it.

I seem to be having this same issue on Ubuntu. If I run either reddcoin-qt or reddcoind as root, it works perfectly but running it as a standard user, it is giving me “waiting for network online” along with “0 connections to the reddcoin network”. So it seems to be a permissions issue of some kind. Does anyone know what group my user needs to be in so this will work?

I have cross posted this over to Reddit. https://www.reddit.com/r/reddCoin/comments/70kabh/linux_permissions/

Okay, seemed to have solved my own problem. Whilst it was autoconnecting with root, it was not doing the same as a user.

I ended up adding “addnode [node ip]” to the reddcoin.conf file, and this then connected and started connecting to other nodes in the network.
