    I was able to run streembit, add and initialize account and request add contact with tzpardi and Joachim. Next up is to build OS X app

    Hi Eddie, it's great you could run it. I was busy with doing a presentation for the Berlin, IETF conference and I was not online with Streembit but I will receive later your contact request. Thanks, for the MAC binary, it would be great to have it.

    @zsoltpardi , I run debian version. Have disabled the firewall (at least in the previous streembitui version i was able to send you the request but could not see if any requests were accepted so i dont think firewall could be a problem). Also TCP 8905 is configured to listening. Here is the output of netstat -l on linux Command line

    $ netstat -l
    Active Internet connections (only servers)
    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State

    tcp 0 0 :33686 : LISTEN
    tcp 0 0 localhost:smtp
    : LISTEN
    tcp6 0 0 [::]:nfs [::]:
    LISTEN
    tcp6 0 0 [::]:43110 [::]: LISTEN
    tcp6 0 0 [::]:8905 [::]:
    LISTEN
    tcp6 0 0 [::]:sunrpc [::]: LISTEN
    tcp6 0 0 [::]:42001 [::]:
    LISTEN

    So i am clueless as to what could have gone wrong..

    I created a new account "yogeshk" (note the change with k added at the end. earlier version was only yogesh). With this i am able to find tzpardi and sent you a friend request. could be this is a bug that if i had previous version of streambitui with account name "xyz" and I now use a new streambitui with the same account name "xyz" , then it does not allow to search contacts ...only when i created another name it allowed me to find contacts. accept my request sent so that i should be able to see your accepted request..

    @mschwab56
    Hi yogk, did you backup your original yogesh account before updating to the new version? If you did you should try restoring the account.

    @logicalpath
    @zsoltpardi I built the osx binaries - Would love to test it by connecting to you or others on the streembit network
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    Feel free to add me on streembit to test it, my account name is mschwab
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    Thanks @mschwab56
    Sent Request
    yogk
    @yogk
    @mschwab56: yes you are right. I had backedup my original "yogesh" account. I restored it and was able to search other contacts. I sent you a request @ "mschwab". plz accept so that i can see accepted requests..
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    @zsoltpardi - Having issues connecting to contacts - It seems - tested with @mschwab56 and he did not see me as online and he appears offline to me. Saw this error in log:
    Failed to store value at one or more nodes, reason: RPC with ID 6de00deff1ebac3b6d2fa9c465e8526015e99714 timed out
    I can provide the log - I created 2 accounts and experience this with both accounts
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    @yogk I accepted both of your accounts as contacts
    T Z Pardi
    @zsoltpardi
    @logicalpath @yogk I assume both of your incoming traffic is blocked. So the TCP listener was created and it is listening - like @yogk indicates above - but cannot receive data. Please check your firewall settings whether the incoming traffic on port 8905 is allowed. I will do some work ASAP on this, so when there is no incoming traffic allowed then we will make that clear for user. The route of the problem is how RPC works. Via the RPC module you can send out data which explains why could you publish your data, but the receive of the reply is already blocked. We need to do more work on handling these scenarios and informing users about the errors via the UI. When the port is opened, the firewall is sorted out then Streembit seems works OK, but when there are some errors the situation is confusing. @logicalpath please email me your log file.

    @logicalpath
    @zsoltpardi I'll check ports on my cable modem - emailed logs
    yogk
    @yogk
    @mschwab56 : i still dont see your names after you have accepted request. As TZ pardi suggests that it could be that the tcp port is listening but cannot receive data. Dont know how to test this or which tool is available on linux ubuntu for testing this on tcp port 8905.
    yogk
    @yogk
    I mean how to test whether receiving is blocked on a particular tcp port (in this case 8905) or not .
    T Z Pardi
    @zsoltpardi
    @yogk This tool at http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ should display "Port 8905 is open on xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" the x is your Ip Address
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    I will be online for awhile if anyone wants to test their streembit
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    @yogk @logicalpath I have tested Streembit with @zsoltpardi and another person and all of the features are working for us. Let me know if you want to test again today if you got your ports open. If you are unable to get the port open you could use the Websocket fallback.

    Hi @mschwab56 I'll give it a go on a few hours.. I'm on Pacific Time

    @mschwab56
    Ok sounds good! I'm on Mountain time

    @logicalpath
    Hello
    port 8905 is blocked
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    Ok what all have you tried to get it open?
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    I enabled upnp - that did not help
    Im going to do port forwarding next
    I dont see where the port is acutally blocked
    in the router/cable modem
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    ok great! I had trouble with mine as well, for some reason unless I had a static IP it would forward the port
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    comcast?
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    naw I use cableone
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    still no joy
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    got it to work - with port forwarding - putting that here for the record
    yogk
    @yogk
    with the tool http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/,
    i get "Port 8905 is closed on 1xx.5.1xx.3". I will have to now check how can i open this port 8905. But even the standard http tcp port 80 also shows as closed, then how can i receive web data if its closed.

    @zsoltpardi
    @yogk You can receive data over the HTTP protocol in your browser because the browser app sends data to the listening port in the web server as a TCP client, and then it receives the message back on the very same socket. So that is a send-receive topology on the TCP client socket. In order to receive data over the HTTP protocol (browser) you don't need a TCP listener, but you use a TCP client. (See my post and proposal about the WS problem in the Google group, which describes how to use such TCP client). So to get web data in your browser you never open a listening port. So don't be confused from that TCP client and TCP listener sockets are different things. For a P2P application you need a TCP listener socket. What you wrote clearly indicates that your TCP listener is not operational. I suggested this could be the issue. If you forward your port on your router then the Streembit client will be reachable by other peers. Thanks for trying :-) let us know if you need anymore help.

    Here is a blog I wrote with some port forwarding tips. Hope this helps https://deardolphinblog.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/port-forwarding-tips/ @yogk

    @zsoltpardi
    @cschwab46 That is really good, thanks! :-) very useful info.

    @drasko
    I cloned the code from here: https://github.com/streembit/streembit
    Information in README is confusing and inaccurate
    Thanks a lot!
    I think this infor should be added to the official README.md
    T Z Pardi
    @zsoltpardi
    @drasko Thanks for pointing this out. We will try to improve the Readme as soon as it is possible.

    Hello All, I am trying to run the source code of https://github.com/streembit/streembitui on window machine . can you please give me some instructions how to run on it?

    @suyashinpilani
    @zsoltpardi I tried streembit by running the exe file provided, however i am getting upnp port mapping error, for which i have disabled my firewall, even though i am getting this error. Please tell me where i am going wrong and what should i do next?
