I am trying to sync an ethereum node on my computer, which is connected to a university network.
However it seems that
geth is not finding any peers, same thing with
mist. It looks to me like the port used by
geth to synchronize (30303 from what I understood) the node is blocked.
Is there any way I could use a different port ?
I found a way to change the port, and even enable upnp, from the
geth command-line documentation :
--port value Network listening port (default: 30303) --nat value NAT port mapping mechanism (any|none|upnp|pmp|extip:<IP>) (default: "any")
However, synchronization still does not start. Here is what I get when running the
geth --fast --cache=4096 --port=10350 --nat=upnp command :
I0320 12:09:23.150087 p2p/server.go:608] Listening on [::]:10350 I0320 12:09:23.152087 node/node.go:341] IPC endpoint opened: \\.\pipe\geth.ipc
And it stays stuck here...
