Hi,
today I tried to use the Bitcoin-QT client as a frontend for a remote bitcoind server.

This is bitcoin.conf on the server:

server=1
rpcuser=MyUser
rpcpassword=MyPass
rpctimeout=60
rpcallowip=Client_IP
rpcport=8332

This is of the client:

rpcuser=MyUser
rpcpassword=MyPass
rpcconnect=Server_IP
rpcport=8332


However, upon starting the Bitcoin-QT client, it made a new wallet and downloaded blocks locally.

Can you help me?

No, the Qt interface requires much more intimate access to bitcoin's datastructures than what is exposed through RPC.

There are some long-term plans to separate node and UI further, though.

I see, is there some alternative? I checked other clients and frontends but, or they are old ( and probably do not support encrypted wallets ) or, like electrum, you can have only the blockchain in remote but not the wallet

What can't Electrum do that you would want?
