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?

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

cd C:\program files\bitcoin
bitcoin.exe -addnode= -addnode= -addnode= -addnode= -addnode= -addnode= -addnode= -addnode= -addnode=
