Lightweight / SPV name lookup client (Testers needed!)

Post by biolizard89 » Thu Sep 22, 2016 7:28 am

For those of you who haven't heard, I made a lightweight SPV name lookup client (based on BitcoinJ / libdohj). Can people please test it out?

Downloads and instructions are at:

https://namecoin.org/download/betas/#li ... kup-client

The usual warnings about betas apply -- don't rely on this for daily use, etc.

Cheers!

Hi. For which platforms? How this works exactly?

I can't sync the SPV client.

I have tried several times. The timeout is increasing exponentially and nothing happens.

I just updated the link in the first post in this thread; any chance you could try either the binaries that are linked or the bleeding-edge branch source code linked in the instructions? (There were some updates since this thread was originally created, which have some bug fixes.)

My understanding is that both jonasbits and an anonymous tester have tested this and confirmed that it works.

Have tested this on OSX, will test on Linux and possible a Virtualbox running windows. It should be noted that webbtc did not work because the webserver did not respond to the API requests, maybe running original version without the needed modificiations at the time of testing.

Seems like mhanne's webbtc.com server or software has a configuration conflict at the moment. All the Namecoin API calls come up with a 502 error. The Bitcoin API works perfectly. I've opened Issue #45

Just to verify, you've successfully tested the leveldbtxcache mode and it worked, correct?

Meanwhile mhanne solved Issue #45
Nothing now stands in the way of some more testing ;)
