for adding me to beta testing.
It looks lot promising.
I had spend time testing the new code, it has many changes including moving from 80 to 443.
I did not find any issues on Windows 7.
Can someone please check Mac OS can it use 443?
The new wallet will work in hybrid mode from what I have tested so far.
It will listen on 443, but at same time will use UPNP (random port like 41379). If for some odd reason user running SSL webserver locally on the PC, then in config change "listen=0".
I agree if we need to make VirtualCoin globally acceptable & with stable network, we need to use common allowed outbound ports like
443 is the next best thing.
Can any Mac OS user please test 443
close existing wallet
add these lines in VirtualCoin.conf file.
then run it, does it freeze or crash? please post.USER TIP
: Another important thing I found out is sync issues etc goes away if your router have UPNP enabled in settings or else connection issues happen unless you manually do port forwarding.
If the dev provide me a beta version I could test it on Mac OS and check if it works on 443.
However, I do not have any open ports on my router, but never had issues with any non common ports from wallets. With the current version using both ports, 80 and 443, I had issues on windows and linux with binding the wallet and getting it listening on a port.
Error: Unable to bind to 0.0.0.0:80 on this computer (bind returned error 13, Permission denied)
Error: Failed to listen on any port. Use -listen=0 if you want this.
So, probably still better to move the port to a non-common one.
