It was just the firewall, did not update in time. Connections now work as intended. Go figure.
OK. To give more clarity. I need someone to guide me through setting up my config and setting up my daemon to run as delegate.
(or just as a server for the moment, but want to know how to make it start up and be logged in)
Again, I'm sure it's easy to figure out, but I am focused on writing a delegates statistics tool and don't want to waste time reinventing the wheel.
Thanks for the instructions GaltReport, it is exactly what I was going to ask next.
So whoever wants to get on chat or IRC with me and stick around until we set it up, let me know and I will reward you the 1000 BTSX.
