sorry if this has been done to death, but my core client (v0.11.2) has zero active connections and no block source available.

i'm running osx 10.8.5.

have rebooted, my internet connection is active. no vpn/tor.

i am at block 362048 (it's been a long time since i ran a node!)

help appreciated.

thanks

edit: i turned my VPN on and now it works. i am confuse :S

edit2 : the best i seem to be able to get is one active connection. is this anything to do with how much data i don't have? i.e people not connecting to my very out of date node?

Check your firewalls that they allow port 8333 both in and outbound connections.

have you configured your netconn to only work with VPN? i had nodes on dedicated machine needed some time to get some connections. and i also still run a 0.11.2 node. so i think has nothing to do with the "outdated" node-version. (is only one version bump)
