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.
Relaunch the Sia-UI (it will bind to your manually started siad instance)
This results in:
A critical error loading Sia has occured: Siad unexpectedly exited. Error log: Loading...
(0/7) Loading siad...
listen tcp 127.0.0.1:9980: bind: Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted.
