Hello,

I have read some of the other threads, but none of the solutions worked. I am running Bitcoin on OSX. When I run the client, I have no connections. When I run the application through socks4 proxy port 8333, I get one or two connections, but no blocks download.

I have transferred several bit coins to this address. Please help with the configuration, or is there a way to use this address on another computer to receive the bitcoins. Bitcoin seems to run better on my Windows 7 machine on the same network.

Please help!

Open Bitcoin client. Go to Bitcoin->Preferences and make sure everything is UNticked. Close the client
Open Terminal and enter these commands
Code:
cd /Applications/
Code:
Bitcoin.app/contents/macos/bitcoin -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

Thank you for the reply. Unfortunately, when I do that I get the following response:

"Bitcoin.app/contents/macos/bitcoin: No such file or directory"

Maybe this is because I installed the application directly from my "downloads" folder? Should I change the command if the path is $username/downloads/bitcoin/?

Also, if I can't get this to work, is there anyway I can take the Bitcoin address from this application that isn't working and access it from another computer/application?

Thanks for the quick reply. Well it worked this time and increased my connections to 5, but it is still not downloading blocks.
