If your having trouble syncing or just generally want to configure things manually heres what I use... This was written after a user ask me about a problem he was having syncing his wallet
Start by making sure ~/.adultchain/adultchain.conf on Linux looks something like this, or if on Windows %appdata%/adultchain/adultchain.conf
externalip="insert your external ip"
Then instead of deleting your blockchain folder to resync you can now pass a flag to do it for you like this
to check that the chain is syncing inspect the debug.log or to generally just make sure your config works as well you can run
