EDIT Found some interesting stuff in the log relating to tor…
root@sf-vps:~# cat ~/.bitcoin/debug.log | grep tor -i 2016-11-13 16:52:21 Default data directory /root/.bitcoin 2016-11-13 16:52:21 Using data directory /root/.bitcoin 2016-11-13 16:52:21 Using at most 125 connections (1024 file descriptors available) 2016-11-13 16:52:29 torcontrol thread start 2016-11-13 17:08:43 Default data directory /root/.bitcoin 2016-11-13 17:08:43 Using data directory /root/.bitcoin 2016-11-13 17:08:43 Using at most 125 connections (1024 file descriptors available) 2016-11-13 17:08:50 torcontrol thread start 2016-11-13 17:08:50 tor: Error connecting to Tor control socket 2016-11-13 17:08:50 tor: Not connected to Tor control port 127.0.0.1:9051, trying to reconnect 2016-11-13 17:08:51 tor: Error connecting to Tor control socket 2016-11-13 17:08:51 tor: Not connected to Tor control port 127.0.0.1:9051, trying to reconnect 2016-11-13 17:08:52 tor: Error connecting to Tor control socket 2016-11-13 17:08:52 tor: Not connected to Tor control port 127.0.0.1:9051, trying to reconnect
I’ve installed the Bitcoin software on Ubuntu 16.04. I’m able to run
bitcoind -daemon for a few minutes, but after a while the process crashes.
Interestingly, I don’t see any reasons in
~/.bitcoin/debug.log explaining why the program might have terminated.
I suspect a couple of things:
- Not enough disc space to store the entire blockchain. However, I don’t think this is the case as running
df - hshows a combined total of only ~41% disc consumption:
root@sf-vps:~# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 241M 0 241M 0% /dev tmpfs 50M 3.1M 47M 7% /run /dev/vda1 20G 6.3G 13G 34% / tmpfs 247M 0 247M 0% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock tmpfs 247M 0 247M 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 50M 0 50M 0% /run/user/0
- Server is not able to receive inbound messages as I’m running a VPN. Is it possible that I’m experiencing a networking issue, e.g. inbound traffic to port 8333 (the default for
bitcoind) is not being allowed through my VPN? I can’t remember how to change the VPN config to allow connections on specific ports, but that’s where I’m looking next…

I consider running a bitcoin full node on a raspberry Pi 3. I want to attach the raspberry Pi into my home-network (wifi). When I check my IP address I have a public address to the outside (which is changing from time to time, however is only one of 5 different addresses) and via NAT given by my ISP. I don’t know what is between “my” public IP and my homenetwork in detail.
As I understand it correctly a bitcoin node does only good to the overall network iff it can accept inbound connections, therefore my raspberry pi must be publicly available (behind all this NAT whatever). If I run a bitcoin node I would like to use it at least by myself as a trusted node inside my mobile bitcoin wallet…
In the end I see two ways to do that:
- Resolve NAT issues with one of the following techniques: Upnp, TURN, NAT hole punching, STUN, ICE, IGDP, NAT-PMP, PCP, ALG, wathever else there, I don’t know…
- Or running a hidden service.
So my question:
- Is it good/bad/ok to “only” allow inbound connections as a tor hidden service?
- Is there an easy way to get a bitcoin node with “traditional” means available as a public node inside a home network?

My Bitcoin Qt is behind 7 years and 32 weeks… I’m new to all this so I wonder:
if I shut down the pc, is the sync gonna continue or will it restart from the beginning?
And.. how can I get my transaction without waiting for 7 years?
and also, does the sync need bigger ssd storage?
