Syncing Fix For Obsidian Wallet – Solution 1
This is based upon Pixxl’s guide – these are the Github notes
Solution 0 – Enable UPnP or Port Forwarding for port 56660
Disabled UPnP or missing port forwarding for port 56660 is mostly the root cause for connection problems.
- Log into your DSL/Cable Router/Firewall/OS Settings and enable UPnP (Universal Plug & Play) or forwarding of port 56660
- If you cannot find these settings, use Solution 1 instead.
Solution 1 – Add more nodes manually
- Run the wallet and go to the menu: Help/Debug Window
- Go to the Console tab
- Type at the prompt:
addnode seed1.obsidianplatform.com add
addnode seed2.obsidianplatform.com add
addnode odn.init.run add
- Wait a couple of minutes again
