I must be doing something wrong that's really obvious to everyone else because I can't find any recent postings on this.
I've tried following the setup instructions here:https://github.com/ethereum/cpp-ethereum/wiki/Installing Clients
I'm installing in a VirtualBox VM on Ubuntu 14.04.1 using the PPA for the latest stable version.
I got AlethZero up and running then pressed "Go!" -- but it still shows: "0 peer(s)".
I've tried entering IP addresses from this page (followed by ":30303"):https://forum.ethereum.org/discussion/626/list-of-alethzero-in-case-the-bootstrap-node-is-down
But I still never get any peers and the IP address is always replaced with the default value of "poc-7.ethdev.com:30303".
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
