I just started with this coin mining stuff and learning linux two months ago so this might be a dumb question:
"addr" : "104.131.142.198:7999" is connecting on port 7999 right ?
is there a way to lock the emerald daemon to it's port and not except communication on other ports, or do I have to figure out how to block ports on my ubuntu box ??

<edit>
also - how would I stop this connection?
 {
        "addr" : "24.73.54.244:12128",
        "services" : "00000001",
        "lastsend" : 1410029538,
        "lastrecv" : 1410029440,
        "conntime" : 1410027930,
        "version" : 60001,
        "subver" : "/Satoshi:0.7.1.2/",
        "inbound" : false,
        "releasetime" : 0,
        "startingheight" : 0,
        "banscore" : 0
    }

am I going to have to watch every connection and use iptables DROP for every one.... could be a long list.

"use UFW and only open certain ports."

Had to google UFW  Grin

That should work well enough with the wrong ports, just have to remember to open ports if I add coins.

Guess I'll have to manually block IP's on the same port, but that are using the wrong coin.

Thanks

make a cheat sheet of the coins and ports like I do - of course I have 14 coins on my pools so I HAVE to keep a cheat sheet.

There are still several of the old clients running in the wild. We are trying to contact anyone who maybe working with an old client to get them shut down or updated to the latest version. EMD is 15 months old, so there are a lot of old clients out there on sites who are blissfully unaware that there have been any changes.

And many more changes are coming... for the better!  Wink

I'm constantly checking my peers so that I can update the addnode list in the OP with good peers... Matter of fact, getting ready to do that right now. If anyone notices any nodes that are updated and not in the OP, post them or send a PM and I will get them added.

To pick out good nodes - In the wallet console type: getpeerinfo  Then, in the peer list, look for peers with: "addr": "xxx.xxx.xx.x:12128", "version" : "6002", "subver" : "8.2.1" or "subver" : "8.3.1"

We are working on banning older versions of the client in the next update. I tried in 8.3.1, but could never get the wallet to find any peers. I was running on fumes at the time... Since I have somewhat recovered and regained a bit of my energy (and sanity); after giving the code a fresh look, we should get things ironed out in the next client update.

Yeah, I've been fooling with it all damned day.. I'm setting up iptables rules to drop the bad nodes.. So far I've seen a digitalcoin and a worldcoin node connected, as well as some others that didn't have any identifying info. I played with the source a little bit and changed it to accept connections from 60001 minimum, but I don't think that had the desired effect since other interfering nodes are showing differently formatted version info. I'm going on fumes as well man, don't feel bad Smiley

Anyway, I've just left it alone to try and resync for several hours, using these as my added nodes (threw in the multipool's address as well).
connect=188.134.72.213
connect=107.170.99.188
connect=92.238.186.27
connect=62.44.226.18
connect=70.180.113.106
I thought using "connect" would limit it to only using those nodes to sync, without fetching their connected nodes and connecting with them as well, but I have 20 connections, but now seems to actually be syncing (slowly). Earlier, it'd sync a while, then stop, then load some more and stop, the multipool didn't seem to be suffering though I haven't mined blocks yet to confirm, it has been in sync with the block explorer the entire time. I was kind of suspecting maybe some DDoS mischief going on, but if it is I don't think it's hitting my server directly or my iptables would have been fishy. So IDK.

Ok, before I went on much further I decided to have a better look since I've kinda left it alone the last couple hours.... getpeerinfo is now showing me ONLY 0.8.3.1 clients now, which is strange because I've mixed and matched addnodes, -noirc, connect, etc. for hours and hours and always ended up seeing connected peers that very obviously weren't EMD. I'm nearly brain dead right now so I may just be imagining things, but I'm thinking that some sort of shenanigans may have been afoot, possibly some sort of DDoS or clusterfuck naughty node attack against our blockchain, or just a horrible accident with misbehaving nodes going completely awry. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong, or stupid, or both. I'd definitely recommend for a future version a complete protocol overhaul, paying careful attention to all the bits that'll keep our blockchain from mingling with any others. Some dns seed nodes would definitely be helpful as well as phasing out the old IRC peering stuff (didn't even bother poking my head into the IRC stuff to see if anything was amiss).

I just find it very strange that earlier, no matter what settings I was using, I still ended up with all sorts of crazy nodes connected but all of a sudden I only have current version nodes connected. I deleted the entire blockchain several times and kept getting all kinds of crazy stuff in the log, though I didn't have the presence of mind to snip some of it, I'll definitely hold on to the newest log in case it'll be of any use later on.

So far on the multipool, we're running about 1MH on EMD, got 2 confirmed blocks and no orphans, so that's a good sign. I'll be keeping an eye on it and will have the MPOS pool back up and running as soon as humanly possible, but it's syncing very slowly so not sure if I can stay awake long enough, lol.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out, and it shall be done! 

Anyone having issues with naughty nodes, use this to drop all packets to/from bad nodes (make sure you replace the IP in both the input and output rules):

Code:
sudo iptables -A OUTPUT -d 104.131.142.198 -j DROP
sudo iptables -A INPUT -d 104.131.142.198 -j DROP
sudo apt-get install iptables-persistent
/etc/init.d/iptables-persistent save

Lots of hashes being spread around the EMD universe today. Net hash currently 1.1 Gh/s... Lot's of new miners out there getting their Emerald!

Speaking of the EMD universe... expansion plans (aka Project Z) announcement tomorrow. Will post here and on Twitter when ready.

First. Make sure you have the latest version (8.3.1) from the OP.

If on the current version, here is a list of nodes that you can add to your config file:

addnode=188.134.72.213
addnode=107.170.99.188
addnode=92.238.186.27
addnode=62.44.226.18
addnode=82.169.240.36
addnode=108.8.4.42
addnode=71.9.214.72
addnode=70.180.113.106
addnode=90.64.117.129
addnode=24.102.94.25
addnode=92.59.89.58

Or there is a sample Emerald.conf file in the OP with the same nodes listed that you can add to your appdata/roaming/Emerald folder (in Windows).

Coins-e is most definitely not on the new fork maybe i'm wrong! Might want to have a chat with them and get them on the right one if they arn't because this isn't showing up in my wallet or on the chain
when i check this THIS explorer.

And for testing sake i have tried the faucet and tried sending coin to coins-e from my wallet and it has showed up on the chain but not at coins-e.

I have sent the necessary support ticket to them requesting they check out this thread properly and the block explorer to confirm they are in-fact using the right chain

Emerald_Crypto you are right - me was stupid Smiley
forgot to put the conf file in the roaming folder Sad

BTW - are you in touch with the pool owner "http://coin-base.info/emerald/index.php"
No coins are seen there.

I do not have an account at Coins-E, so I have not personally verified it. They responded to me when I first released the update 3 weeks ago and one of the pool ops posted on here a couple of days ago that they were updated; so I assumed that they had it done. It is possible they have lost sync or are having other issues. I will check it out.

Cryptsy, on the other hand, has had the info for the same amount of time plus a support ticket that is now ~17 days old (with numerous updated replies from me) and still have not gotten it done. BitJohn had told me in chat a few days before the fork that it would be done and then they began having multiple issues with their wallet server. Somehow EMD got shuffled to the bottom of the stack. I, personally, have 35K or so EMD that I would like to be in my wallet, rather than on their exchange.

Just before the fork, I put in a request that they stop deposits and withdrawals until they were updated to avoid mixing old chain coins with currency from the new (official) chain. There were some undocumented pools out there that were, and some still are, on the wrong chain. I've managed to locate a few, but there are still several old clients running in the wild that need to be tracked down.

If anyone is aware of a multipool or other unlisted pool that was mining EMD before the fork, let me know or send them a message with a link to this thread or the emeraldcrypto.org website so they can get updated.

The best thing we can do about Cryptsy is to keep asking in their chat when the updated wallet is going to be online. Linking back to the thread, occasionally, probably wouldn't hurt either. If they see there is a demand (and they should have already noticed the uptick in volume and price the past few days), it should make it a priority for them to get the wallet updated and back online.

Emerald_Crypto you are right - me was stupid Smiley
forgot to put the conf file in the roaming folder Sad

BTW - are you in touch with the pool owner "http://coin-base.info/emerald/index.php"

thanks for the support

Coin-base had very little hash at the fork block and somehow ended up on a chain all their own. I messaged them when I noticed it, but it took them a couple of days before they finally re-synced and joined the right chain. They have had the "back-end issues" notification on their pool since that time.

It may take a few days for them to get through the database and get things cleaned up before they start showing blocks on the front end and making payouts again. They've been with Emerald for a long time, so I'm sure your shares are safe and you (and me, too) will be paid out soon. I'll reach out to them and try to get an ETA on when things will be back to normal.

Thanks for the great support. it is much appreciated.
Regarding Cryptsy - i have also opened a support ticket to update regarding the EMD wallets. I suggest that everyone that is mining or waiting for their coin in Cryptsy will open a support ticket to push them.

Regarding the coin base - i really hope they sort it out as i have been mining there for a few days as well.

If anyone here (pool ops/pool dev) that is interested in opening an additional pool let me know.
i need to know what are the specs.

thanks

Hi LongAndShort,
regarding your post below. Coin E was on the right explorer as i mined directly to my EMD wallet there.
currently they have an issue as from about 5 hours ago i stopped getting any coins to my wallet.
i have no clue why. need to open a support ticket.

anyone else is suffering from re-syncing the wallet.
i get 0 connections.
