hmm, the "peers disagree with NTP" looks more and more like it can pretty much only be a bad ntp response:

Added time data, samples 17, offset -2 (+0 minutes)
-2  -2  -2  -1  -1  -1  -1  -1  -1  -1  -1  -1  +0  +0  +0  +0  +0  |  nTimeOffset = -1  (+0 minutes)

This is on a box with ntpd synced to a local stratum1 where the current SNTP code consistently gets < 10ms offset to local time from all pool.ntp.org servers I tried.

The basic problem is... we can't trust the local clock to be accurate, and if median-of-peers and SNTP disagree by more than a few sec... which one is right?
Gut feeling says if peers and NTP disagree by too much preferring median-of-peers time and issuing a warning might be better, current code uses NTP time and issues a warning under those conditions.

Yes, I tend to agree with your gut feel, will have to tweak that bit later on.

Hm, the RPC error is quite bizzare - I successfully connect GUIminer "out of the zip" (though its option saving is apparently weird and I have to re-input port every time it restarts). Sent ya some geists

P.S.:
dishwara, seriously, open up them ports for them incoming connections  Cheesy. That will make you and Geist Geld as a whole happier Smiley


Ports are open only. I think the problem is guiminer searching for bitcoin.exe.
For GG which is the client & server file to run to mine solo?
is it geistd.exe?
I think if it is then giving it in the guiminer "location of bitcoin client" solve RPC problem.

No need for server. Just solo, localhost, user, pass and port (8777), and GG application opened, of course.

Guiminer giving error.

This is in bitcoin.cnf file in virtual_data folder

I see a strange problem in guiminer. Even after configuring & SAVING & mining, restarting guiminer with quit changes the port back to 8332 in stead of 8777.
Seems guiminer not saving the port number, so in every restart of guiminer port number have to be given again.

I mined only 30 minutes & got 2 blocks & my balance increased from 9 to 23. Since each block has 7 coins. So i hope i am mining correctly.

@Lolcust:  Also please add in your signature in BOLD letters to update the config file with ntp=1 instead of ntp=0.
Many are still using old version & it takes me sometimes 1 or 2 attempts to restart GG to get no error/no ntp error in getinfo.

Mine is running great now, after tons of trials and one change of computer Smiley .  I think most of the problems should be due to firewall setting as for this computer, I just unpack and run and it is running perfectly.

The reason for not mining is very simple.
Its not due to not correctly pointing to bitcoin client.

Its for this reason config in bitcoin.conf

Code:
# rpcport will also be changed for namecoin here
rpcport=8777

noirc=0
dns=0
gen=0   I changed it to gen=1


On next release update gen=1.

Also i see a strange problem in guiminer. Even after configuring & SAVING & mining, restarting guiminer with quit changes the port back to 8332 in stead of 8777.
Seems guiminer not saving the port number, so in every restart of guiminer port number have to be given again.

I mined only 30 minutes & got 2 blocks & my balance increased from 9 to 23. Since each block has 7 coins. So i hope i am mining correctly.

Are you sure about the gen=1 ? It should run fine with "gen=0".

I thought "gen" is for CPU mining on the local machine, by the client itself.
But that doesn't give you much coins, CPU's are slow for mining...

yes. its not gen=0 gave problem. But guiminer port not storing.
Always port changes to 8332 after restart of guiminer.

I finally mined 28 GG coins successfully with 2 blocks of orphaned coins.   It would be nice if someone start a pool though.

yesyes, plz pool.  I'm too lazy/ untrustworthy to get involved without a pool =/

I think until Lolcust changes the testnet folder to some other name, no pool or exchange will take GG seriously.
Since GG restarted many used to believe that it will be restarted again. Besides that it has a folder named testnet which has wallet.dat..
So, its obvious that anyone can easily believe that GG is still in test net only.

~40000 blocks mined so far, its really higher than the blocks mined by any other currency besides bitcoin. Now I0C passed ~44000+ blocks.

So better release a new version with NO TESTNET folder & also ntp=1

Is there real interest in a blockexplorer-like site for Geist Geld?  Help me decide if I should set it up!     Grin

Yes: 16p7hr3nKhFrKz3qn2cg3Q3buEgr5yPnU9
No: 1H51nfR4V83dhy9niUZjjXigVVYeX14qZ9

0:0, so there doesn't seem to be neither real need nor interest in the blockexplorer for GG.   Grin

I still can't connect.  In the GG client window I see a message that says "no valid UPnP IGDs found".  What does that even mean?

Means that the UPnP has not found a device it could have dirty talk with, so you are falling back on the vanilla approach to port forwarding

Strange enough you have no outgoing ones tho.

Post your getinfo and your config ( www.pastebin.com )
