Hi all,

I recently installed geth on mac os x (dmg package). I have an address which has non-zero funds -

I have been trying to check my balance and run transfers from within the geth console, but to no avail.

> eth.accounts
["0x4d1db3a233b036493acd8e04266da0487b90e337", "0xb7d7845ebf99ba32d1138c58ccbff03eac35215d"]
> eth.getBalance(eth.accounts[0])
> eth.getBalance('0x4d1db3a233b036493acd8e04266da0487b90e337')

I've also tried to check transactions, but with a null return.

> eth.getTransaction('0x3e9c68c3653e74766b652761de40e836f1d2fb9392d620980812d6957f613614')

Really not sure what is going on? I've tried various solutions online including running the miner for a few minutes, etc.

Any help would be much appreciated.

With thanks,
