Guys, I want to install Namecoin client but I'm failing miserably lol. I downloaded windows version at http://dot-bit.org/Main_Page, then I run the installer namecoind.exe and a command pormpt pops up and disappers, nothing happens then.  Huh I'm confused. Is there a tutorial or something, how to install MNC? thx!

The original Namecoin GUI client is pretty basic. Work is being done on an updated GUI client, though. See this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=236375.0

Just to nip any confusion in the bud right here, there never was any 'original namecoin GUI client' ... only ever the namecoind daemon, that you interface with cli rpc calls.

Command line or websites that registered the domains for you (which were done in a pretty bad way, as you wouldn't even have the private key I believe).
Some people are not frightened by the command line :p.

People who have registered on my service (http://register.dot-bit.org) and who want to switch to namecoin-qt and manage their names themselves can contact me by pm or mail.


There is currently an important discussion for revised fees on namecoin.
People opinions are welcome on this subject.
This thread will decide how much will cost names and tx in the future :p


I'm also rebasing namecoin on the bitcoin v0.8 code.
I've integrated commits up to bitcoin v0.4.0.
Any help is welcomed on testing this release of namecoind (there is a known bug with name_new causing a crash [any hint on this, backtrace is provided ?] + the wallet encryption does not encrypt in all case [known bug of bitcoin v0.4.0]. So, do not use for production :p).


The Convergence plugin (provide HTTPS support for .bit and self-signed certificates, + namecoin dns resolution in a near future) continue to evolve in parallel with NMControl. A beautiful future for namecoin is coming !

The compiled windows 3.64 namecoin client is running under wine/xubuntu 10.04.
Next I will try to compile it and run natively. It seems to be not so easy.

The biggest pain seems to be now browsing .bit domains.

1.
a.
Configuring foxyproxy as described https://dot-bit.org/How_To_Configure_Foxyproxy .
Doesn't work at all with 178.32.31.43:8888.

b.
Changing to 178.32.31.41:80 and trying .bit enabled websites.
Popular .bit enabled websites

bluishcoder.bit
bitcoinX.bit with shortcuts bx.bit and nx.bit (namecoin stats)
bitse.bit (.bit search engine)
dot-bit.bit
explorer.bit
dns.bit
register.bit
14u.bit (URL shortener)
namealert.bit (domain expiration alert)

.bit redirections

bitcoin.bit

Links down or parked

thepiratebay.bit
bitcointorrentz.bit
gee.bit (.bit search engine)
kirk.bit
wikileaks.bit
organicdesign.bit
bitcointalk.bit

Evrywhere is coming the same page:
Namecoin DNS servers
What is namecoin / Dot-BIT ?
How to register a .bit domain

Only register.bit is showing his own content.
It is the same in Ubuntu, Xubuntu, WinXP, Win7, Mozilla and Chromium.
But I remember with the proxy 178.32.31.43:8888 at least the above sites worked half of year ago.

2.
Now I am trying with webproxies:
dotbit.me
You need to register to surf the .bit sites.
 Grin Grin Grin
It is to complicated just to try a site.
proxy.dot-bit.org
Yeah. All the popular .bit sites are working.
But wikileaks not.

3.
Trying dot-bit.addon 1.0 on Mozilla and Chromium from namecoin.com.
Nothing. Could not find server.
With Addblocker and foxyproxy deactivated and restarted also. Nothing again.

4.Trying to configure namecoinia.bit:
{"translate": "namecoinia.org."} browsing not working (with none of the above methods)
{"translate": "namecoinia.org"} browsing not working (with none of the above methods)
with some ns configurations also - browsing doesn't work

------------
Is anybody who has a better experience with it ? or any tricks ?

On linux you can put the following line into the top of /etc/resolv.conf

Code:
search namecoin-suffix.dot-bit.org

The biggest pain seems to be now browsing .bit domains.
Already posted this in the other namecoin thread, but I should mention it here, too:



Windows 7:
Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing > Connections: Local Area Connection > Properties > IPv4 > Properties > Use the following DNS server > 178.32.31.41

Windows XP:
right-click the mini icon of your active network connection, then select Status > Properties > TCP/IP > Properties > Use the following DNS server > 178.32.31.41

Mac OS:
System Preferences > Network > Advanced > DNS > DNS Servers: +  > 178.32.31.41



(You need an unrestricted user account, of course).


Then open any standard browser and first try one of the following:
http://dns.bit/
http://nx.bit/
http://bitse.bit/

Thanks.
Indeed this helped a little bit but only if configured with the proxy 178.32.31.43:8888.
At the beginning it gave me an
It works !
page for every .bit domain but nothing more.
Then I insisted to get more and indeed from  6-7  .bit websites I received the proper page after reloading from "It works !"
From all the others only "Not able to connect.".
Is there any possibility to improve the availability of the .bit websites ?

http://nx.bit/

Yes I saw it and I tried this setup. Thanks. It was very helpful and worked a couple of days but now doesn't work any more.
Now this sites are only working with Khals proxy 178.32.31.43:8888 and resolv.conf changed.
But I am asking how could get working the other .bit websites also.

You obviously changed some proxy settings.
If you got the DNS settings right, don't use any proxies.


I've just checked on Win7 and Mac and Linux. All three domains I recommended (dns.bit, nx.bit, bitse.bit) are up and running.

A few hints:

- Restart your browser after each settings change.
- Try http://nx.bit instead of http://www.nx.bit (some of the active .bit domains haven't configured the "www" subdomain).
- Check both the browser and the system settings: no proxy (e.g. Opera has a proxy system on top of the OS proxy settings).
- Windows7/XP: you may have unchecked/deactivated "TCP/IP" or "IPv4" in the "Properties" window accidentally. Make sure it is active.
- Linux: check /etc/resolv.conf, the first line should be
nameserver 178.32.31.43
(however, some Linuxes don't use this file. Google is your friend  Wink )

For those interested, I'd like to announce that I'm working on integrating namecoin identities into bitmessage (to send BMs to addresses someone stored with his/her namecoin identity), see https://dot-bit.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1004 or my thread on the Bitmessage forum.

namecoin can be used as a key-value system to do things like this: namecoin-files (i dont link it on purpose so ppl have to search for it as it bloats the blockchain alot...)

this.

however, there are some good news. namecoin.com has released the source code on their firefox extension, and the add-on is working again!

Sadly, the chrome app remains garbage for the time being.

My proxy server didn't work last days (the plugin uses it).
Maybe due to too much requests. If it doesn't work anymore again, pm me.

Good that works now. You are making very much for the Namecoin community.
