Hey everybody!

I recently downloaded Bitcoin(0.3.21) and just can't make it to work. The problem is that the program doesn't have any connections. I use win7 64bit, I forwarded port 8333, I added bitcoin as an exception to the firewall, what else can I do? The program have runned for several hours now and there's still no change.

I'm quite new this topic, what did I miss?

Thanks!

Disable both your AV and FW, should fix the problem.

You may have made a mistake somewhere along the way when forwarding port 8333. Try again.
Also, you could try disabling manual forwarding in your router and enabling "Map port using UPnP" in Settings->Options. Restart client after enabling it.

If all that fails, open cmd and enter these commands

Code:
cd C:\program files\bitcoin
Code:
bitcoin.exe -addnode=69.164.218.197 -addnode=64.22.103.150 -addnode=173.242.112.53 -addnode=178.79.147.99 -addnode=184.106.111.41 -addnode=91.85.220.84 -addnode=173.224.125.222 -addnode=86.5.50.90 -addnode=178.255.199.86
