Parity seems to work and comes up with the green 'homestead' button in the bottom right hand corner. When trying to sync with Kovan after using this video/tutorial for setup: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTjstkfOT8E
It says "kovan" where the homestead is normally, but the boundary is red, not green. It will sometimes sync the blocks but won't pickup new transactions. If I crash and restart, new transactions will show up.
I am using chrome, but also have tried (initially) firefox.
edit: @susmit, ok thx, do you still put a config file and the parity folder? If i send a transaction it will show as pending but never complete unless i crash the app!?
