bitcoinj to MultiChain bitcoin - connection timeout [closed]

+1 vote

Hi, I cloned a copy of the modified BitcoinJ from: and followed exactly all the instructions in the README file, including using the sample params.dat file provided (multichain_bitcoin.params.dat) without any modification ( so, I am running Multichain as a bitcoin network without assets and permissions).

However, I keep getting the following error messages -- it connected but timed-out after 5 seconds.  Appreciate your kind advice.  I have seen someone asking this before but there was no concrete answer.

Thank you very much.

closed with the note: I wish to close this case.  It was caused by my office firewall blocking outgoing port 8333.  Sorry about this.
