That's because bitcoin-ruby-node didn't answer "getheaders" messages. You should now be able to sync the chain from webbtc with namecoin-core. (https://github.com/mhanne/bitcoin-ruby- ... 945a750e42)

Not sure about the IP issue, I'm thinking maybe the "from"/"to" fields (as they are called in bitcoin-ruby at least) need to be set depending on the direction of the connection (incoming/outgoing), though it doesn't seem to make much of a difference...

Thanks for checking this! Please feel free to open issues on github, I'll probably notice it sooner then :)

Since this has been bumped, I can add another comment: I've recently set up a seeder for another coin (which was contract work), and also have a VPS available that I can use to run one for Namecoin. So I'll add my own seed (probably "namecoin.seed.domob.eu") soon.

The seed is up and running - it is actually seed.namecoin.domob.eu.

Well done! It now connects and synchronizes without any problems.

It works! Consistently gives me 12 IP addresses of Namecoin nodes.

By the way, maybe I should mention this: For my own seed, I cloned sipa's bitcoin seeder and added a Namecoin branch with all the necessary configuration: https://github.com/domob1812/bitcoin-se ... e/namecoin

This is more or less straight-forward to do, but I thought I'd share the code here nevertheless. :)

Things like this should go into the "list of resources" I am working on. Very useful but easily overlooked.
nx.bit - some namecoin stats
nf.bit - shortcut to this forum
