I have already explicitly allowed tcp in and out on port 30303 through windows firewall. Other people were told previously to use geth attach ipc:\\.\pipe\geth.ipc or geth attach, and neither of those have worked for me: I just get Fatal: Failed to start the JavaScript console: api modules: Post dial tcp connectex: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

All I want to do is full sync. When I run the geth command, wireshark says that 0 tcp packets are delivered from port 30303. What more do I need to do?

  • Did you launch a geth instance previously? What command line did you use? – Ismael Aug 27 '20 at 15:35
