@chanakyabtc Only thing I can think of is that its a permissions issue. Check that the user you're running siad as has permissions to run siad and read/write permissions to the data directory (WorkingDirectory).
Delete the wallet.db file in your AppData/sia/wallet folder. Delete just the wallet.db file and nothing else.
Wallet -> restore from seed -> put old seed.
Unlock wallet by providing the old seed as password.
By doing that the Sia-UI would rescan the whole blockchain.
If that does not work you should ask someone more educated.
At Discord there are a lot more people around. Including the core developers.
Hey just an update, my daemon has no problem connecting to the Sia network, been reading a bit of the forum threads, still no luck with the fund yet. I did find the NXT wallet with the encrypted messages and transactions related to claiming my siafund before the due date, so it would be pretty cool if I ever got this to work :)
You should get some sort of dynamic DNS entry for your host and announce your host with that DNS name.
Then the changing IP does not matter (if the dns entry gets updated when the IP changes) and you can host without penalties.
@asywoo Thank you very much for sharing to turn off "Vulnerability protection". It really helped me. I had to use a VPN while figuring it out what was going on and why my Asus router blocked stratum+tcp connection. I turned it off and it has been fixed !!! The same must be done with Trend Micro if installed on the computer. Thanks again for sharing.
