try going to settings/options/network then making sure the proxy tab is not checked and only the upnp is. I had the same issue until I figured this out. It seems to be working just find now. I had a problem with it not being able to uncheck it. Finally I just unchecked it then clicked ok instead of apply and reset it. No problems so far, good luck :D

just save the wallet.dat file on the PC with all your coins in to a USB stick.. and transfer it to you new PC... I take it you are running windows OS?? if so you want to open a windows explorer and type
Code: [Select]
%AppData%this will take you to your Roaming folder.. then find primecoin... and in there is your wallet.dat file.

Please make sure you back this file up and save it somewhere as this is where one careless overwrite could loose you all your coins.

Hi primecoinkilla,

open explorer and put this in the adressbar:
%Appdata%/primecoin

Overwrite the wallet.dat that is inside of this folder with the one you have on your usb stick.

Edit: if you are overwriting your wallet.dat with the one from the usb you don't need a option to import your private keys.
Your private keys are whats inside the wallet.dat file.

have fun !

If anybody needs some nodes there's this one:

Code: [Select]
seednode=primeseed.muuttuja.org

and I'm running a few servers too

Code: [Select]
addnode=74.91.19.194
addnode=107.150.34.218
addnode=95.47.118.81
addnode=54.72.22.135

Add those lines to primecoin.conf
