Hello everyone!

I installed the satoshi client on a second local computer. Since I don't want to download the entire blockchain again, I tried to connect to my old computer with "bitcoind --connect=192.168.0.4"

Unfortunately the client doesn't open a connection to my other pc.
Since "telnet 192.168.0.4 8333" is working, I don't think that I have any connectivity problems. If I start the client without the connect option, the client works as designed (of course without an actual block chain).
Does anyone know what could cause my problem?

OS: Linux 3.0, Ubuntu 12.04
client version: 0.6.2-oneiric0

TIA

Not sure what your problem is but you can simply copy the blockchain file from one computer to another (the files are in the bitcoin datadir).  Much faster than downloading it one block at a time.

I tried to copy blk* but the client on the new machine wasn't able to open the files.

error message:

Code:
Loading block index...


EXCEPTION: 11DbException
Db::open: Das Argument ist ungültig
bitcoin in Runaway exception

EnvShutdown exception: DbEnv::close: Das Argument ist ungültig (22)

("Das Argument ist ungültig" = "the argument is invalid")

Since the client on the old machine is working proper, the blockchain files shouldn't be corrupt.

Make sure you stop bitcoind on the old machine before making a copy.  Also I am not sure if it matters but I copy everything (except the wallet.dat).
