Just a quick note: if the IP doesn't have the default port then it's probably an outbound connection, and any attempt to connect to that IP (inbound) on that port is likely to fail. Best to omit the port when specifying addnode/connect parameters. I understand this was probably a copy and paste of your getpeerinfo output, just pointing out that potential problem, for future reference. Smiley
Damn there goes my reputation !
But yes, it was indeed a quick copy and paste action and a quick clean up with notepad.

With incorrect or no port forwarding, incomming connects are useless.
If correct, incomming are also usefull.
Normally port nr, can or should be deleted, since ppl might change these on the fly.
And the wallet has no problems sorting out which port to connect to since that info is updated whenever there is peer exchange info.
Or more simply put whenever peer.dat gets updated.
The best way of course to find out if an ip is in or outbound is by getpeerinfo, typical output would be :

{
"addr" : "xx.xxx.xxx.xx:18775",
"services" : "00000000",
"lastsend" : 1415481527,
"lastrecv" : 1415481538,
"conntime" : 1415481527,
"bytessent" : 126,
"bytesrecv" : 1467,
"blocksrequested" : 0,
"version" : 0,
"subver" : "",
"inbound" : false,   <===== BINGO !
"releasetime" : 0,
"startingheight" : -1,
"banscore" : 0
}

I almost forgot.
connect= also tells wallet not to accept incoming connects, listen=1 will be ignored as such.

You probably want to use -addnode and not -connect, because connect implies a set exclusive peer list (i.e. you won't connect to any other peers). Or you can just remove them from the .conf after you load it, as the valid ones will now be in peers.dat
maybe that is what he intended to do... only connect to exclusive peer (that he believes on the main/correct chain)
I actually tried removing .conf after that and started the client again, and it still re-connects to certain clients on wrong fork again
I think because it always ask for more new peers from the connected peers to propagate the network
How can I tell? because when I removed .conf my upload bandwidth went crazy again...
all connected peers are all different than those exclusive list I connected earlier
and I noticed 1 of the connected peer height is way below (is at 173217) and stay like that for days as I remember
also a few connected nodes are at "startingheight" : -1 I doubt that means he just started.
What exactly height -1 means here?
in .conf file, is there a way to block certain peer? something like perma-banned until we removed it in the future
You are spot on.
Its indeed intended to force your wallet to connect only to certain/trusted peers.
When using connect= , Listen=1 will be ignored, which means no incomming connects accepted.
What clam needs would be so-called seed peers or nodes.
1 is enough, but for back up reasons of course its better to have at least 2 or more.

How to block certain peers ?
You can make use of an ip filter like peerblock.
There are others out there.
Also LMHOST file inside your windows directory can be used to do that, effectively redirecting unwanted ip to blackhole, and have a nice day !
But any decent firewall, indeed NOT windows firewall, can be use to block.
Depending on what apps I have running I use firewall and at times make use of peerblock on top of it.
Peerblock comes with block lists so you can block ip ranges of anti p2p, secret service or other crap.

Also have a look at TCPView, it shows you what is connected to your box.
It has helped me findig unwanted connects of various app including Windows.
NETstat will do the same btw.

As usual, a quick search on the net should get you further information.
Do a search of bitcoin.conf to locate the wiki, detailed info about options and how to use them.

Further questions ?
Just post and I will try to help if time permits it.

Anyway time to stop I start to make stupid typos.

With incorrect or no port forwarding, incomming connects are useless.
If correct, incomming are also usefull.

The remote port you're connected to on an incoming connection is never their listening port, and so is never useful.

Without port forwarding, you won't get any incoming connections, unless you're not behind a NAT router.

Mandatory Update Announcement:



The CLAMS network has continued to come under attack and manipulation.
Thus, we are implementing another mandatory update/fork at block 203,500.
(Current block: 201,100).



The current mandatory update fixes a list of inherited issues and vulnerabilities too long to even list in such a post.

The code in the primary repository has been updated.
Those inspired to review the code can view it at this Pull Request.
These users can compile the new update as soon as they wish.

For those users utilizing pre-compiled binaries, the compiled version of the client will be released tomorrow morning.

See below for compiled executable binaries.



Some highlights of the update include:
- Entirely new UI,
- Added "weight" to coin-control UI,
- Reduced the automatic output combination threshold to 1 CLAM,
- Default RPC port changed to 30174,
- A cornucopia of upstream code improvements,
- Literally dozens and dozens of fixes, such as difficulty adjustment and timestamp spoofing,
- The ground work for some additional future features.

Special thanks to:
xploited, for all of his hard work on the codebase and making the update possible.
dooglus, working with the difficulty adjustment and other helpful consultation and contribution.
tryphe, for additional features and work with the awesome new UI.
moneromooo, for the weight addition to coincontrol

I almost certainly forgot someone, let me know and it is my pleasure to add your name to the list Grin



UPDATED CLIENTS:
CLAMclient 1.4.3.0 Windows
CLAMclient 1.4.3.0 Linux



Some awesome content here; hope everyone enjoys the improved codebase and UI Grin

Sorry for the rushed timeline, but we consider it extremely important that we deal with these chain shenanigans and add resilience to CLAMS in a timely manner.

We realize that back-to-back mandatory updates are an inconvenience to users.  To counter balance this, we did our best to march the ball forward for CLAMS and add in as many improvements and Easter eggs into the fork/fix as time would allow Smiley

Long Live the Great CLAM,
CLAMS Devs

RPC port seems to have changed from 15715 to 30174 (?)

edit: I guess this is to stop the conflict with Blackcoin. Just caught me unawares since my system was expecting CLAM to be on 15715.

The CLAMS network has continued to come under attack and manipulation.

I want to try and clarify this by saying the attacks after the fork at block ~170 000 benefitted the whole network rather than just a single entity. To put it simply, the network difficulty was being pushed down. So if you were staking, you did get an informal bonus.

This fork also puts a few new mechanisms into play that will allow some planned future updates to be soft-forked in and certainly be more seamless than things are now for the average user. As painful as two hard-forks this close together have been for all of us, it is my intention for users to not have to stare at this announcement forum all day long, or pay attention at all to anything but the client to be notified of an update. I only say this because there seems be clients still stuck on forks around block 165k-170k, and that concerns me. We want to include everyone here, even if someone can only devote a few minutes of focus on our coin. People are busy, after all. But we're here to stay and want to see our community flourish.

Cheers,
tryphe

Awesome - bit rough around the edges, but it was a push to have it included in this update at all.
Those types of issues can easily be fixed without fork or hassle in the near future Grin

- Reduced the automatic output splitting threshold to 1 CLAM,

I don't think that's quite right.

It looks to me like the new code will combine outputs which are less than 1 CLAM into outputs of size 1 CLAM, but it will split anything that took less than 24 hours to stake (but only when it does eventually stake).

But maybe that's what you meant.

The intent was to just include a very simple fix that will prevent people from having their manually split outputs re-combined on them.

Join the effort in CoinSwap's IRC room to vote CLAMs onto the exchange.

Go to http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=coin-swap and enter "!vote CLAM" once per hour.

As of now CLAMs has over 200 votes and is near #3 on the list.

Thanks to user istvandv for pointing this out Smiley

Well all I'm getting right now is a ton of "generated but not accepted" (for an hour and a half now). khashier seems to be on the old chain so no idea how to make sure mine is syncing to the correct one?

BTW the client says the network weight is over 93 million?

EDIT: Now 763 million...

Indeed, difficulty is racing upwards to catch it - we are investigating.

Stop into #clams on freenode, we are exchanging blockhashes and monitoring the chain.

We went for a bit of a ride after the fork, all of the estimates are entirely off, though things are balancing out now.
If you want to check that you are on the right chain, or get things straightened out stop into IRC, friend.

I've also noticed I seem to be staking a lot. Is there a simple way to get onto your IRC channel via a web client? I haven't used IRC for 10 years. Smiley
