Hey,

I've compiled bitcoind from gavin's git at 04a667b0767a6c3fff8d24be784ccaec9edf712b on my mac, and while everything is working great for the real bitcoin network, testnet seems to refuse to bootstrap.

Looking at the logs it doesn't even try to connect to IRC, though I'm not using -connect nor -noirc (I am using -nolisten and -rpcport, as I have another bitcoin running).

What am I missing? Alternatively can you share the IPs for the some testnet nodes I can connect to?

-nolisten turns on -noirc.

Try:

addnode=69.164.218.197

... to connect to the testnet Faucet bitcoind.

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

Well, it has one single
Code:
trying connection  lastseen=-334791.3hrs lasttry=-362569.1hrs

I'll let it run for a bit, see what happens.

But I'm puzzled; so the reason this works on non testnet new wallets (that don't yet have stored node addresses) is because there's a list of seeds hardcoded, which means no such list exists for testnet?

And it is still not connecting, or even trying to actually. I also tried with -connect instead, which keeps at least keeps popping those 'trying connection' entries in the log, but still doesn't connect.

What port is bitcoin testnet connecting to? I'll double check I can access it.
