Wallet will not sync


#1

I updated to the latest version today. The wallet is not syncing. It shows that it’s synchronizing with network but it’s been 6 hours and I’m still at the same place and I have a red icon that says no connections. The error I see in the debug over and over is socket recv error An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine. (10053),
I’m on a windows 10 machine. Pivx core 3.1.1 64 Bit.
Any help would be appreciated as I can’t use the wallet.

What wallet version did you update from? If it wasn’t 3.1.0.2 your wallet is most likely forked. Try to resync:

I tried that and I’m still not getting any connections. I show no peers and no block updates. It says Synchronizing but just sits at 0 says Syncing but is not Log file is full of these errors.

What antivirus software are you running? There is potential that (or a firewall) is blocking the connections. This can be a little tricky as many AV software easily adds the exception to the scanning portion but not as a signature to the active endpoint portion.
