So I am trying to connect to the testnet3 and I can't get any peers. It just hangs at No block sources. If I am on the mainnet I get 10 sources and I always have full green bars. What is the issue? What peers can I manually connect too?

Here is debug.log
Code:
UPnP Port Mapping successful.

I found an active testnet node here: http://testnet.mojocoin.com/about

You can add it in a few ways:

In your bitcoin.conf file (requires software restart):
addnode=199.26.85.40

Directly into a running instance of bitcoin-qt through the debug console (no restart):
addnode=199.26.85.40

Directly into a running instance of bitcoin daemon (no restart):
bitcoind addnode=199.26.85.40

When starting bitcoin daemon:
bitcoind -addnode=199.26.85.40

Also, Bitcoin Abe for Testnet can be found here: http://pool.qdoop.net:18331/chain/Testnet3

I haven't run testnet since Jul 26th. I just fired it up now and got 8 outgoing connections quickly. There must be something wicked with your setup since the network seems to be healthy.

Yeah i figured it out I found some healthy connections, the seed peers seem to be down.

basically what you said before, just that mojo wasn't getting a connection but http://tpfaucet.appspot.com/ was giving me a connection. And now I am currently connected to 10 peers.
