MultiBit on Debian Wheezy: “Connecting…” instead of “Online”

I installed MultiBit (a Bitcoin client) on my Debian Wheezy. I didn’t know much about Bitcoin so I thought that I’ll install and play around about with it.

I installed Multibit using the “Linux/Unix Installer” (see the instructions).

I ran MultiBit but it didn’t connect to the network. The bottom-left status message always said Connecting… instead of Online.

After a few Google searches, look at the logs, etc. I followed these instructions: this webpage.

With root privileges I had to do:

  • edit /etc/sysctl.d/bindv6only.conf
  • change net.ipv6.bindv6only = 0 to net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1
  • /etc/init.d/procps restart

And then Multibit worked correctly.
