I mine on mineiota.com, the only transactions that I received are from that page. I have around 120 transactions on my wallet history.

Try this
Change Node to custom and use this one.
https://iota.thathost.net:443
It has been the only node i can find that is working.

I don't think it's that's the issue with hosts available.
Connecting to that or other host, I got the same pattern:

  • I can connect (and use) two other wallets.
  • This wallet gave different errors: 'access denied', 'failed to connect to host' and takes a lot of time to login until it comes back to the login screen again.

I have the exact same problems too. I have +110 transactions from mineiota.

@onemoreitguy thx for the link.

But in the cases above everybody seems far away from the limit of 1000. Just round about 100 - 200 transactions so far.

android or desktop wallet version report the same.
@ColDrekken , I didn't look at the code, but the 1000 limit could include cascading between nodes and/or simultaneous wallet requests

I might have a temporary workaround, but I cannot solve it because I cannot find/connect to fully sync neighbor nodes (my current subtangle is not solid... missing a few transactions) :(

Change node? Does not work, even using node.dance site!
Install and unistall wallet, Does not work!!
Install Iota Android, change pc or is a issue in your network. Does not work!
If you have many transactions...i have only 5 txs.

This is many of several advices, none works!!!! IT IS NOT A USER ISSUE!!!!

My seed doesnt work in wallet IOTA Light Wallet 2.5.4, and the unique place where i get
something was in smidgen/bitfinex lib. I see my pretty balance.

I cannot log in either. Using IOTA Light Wallet 2.5.4 and my host is iota.bitfinex.com:80

It will say LOGGING IN... and then after 15-20 minutes it says Connection Refused

commented Dec 6, 2017

We failed to connect because we made a lot of transactions in MINEIOTA.COM though.. We exceeded the limit of 1000 outgoing and incoming transactions. IMO
I still have high hopes in IOTA foundation devs. Let us just wait for the next compliance.

@vicman10000 Just letting you know I've gone through the steps but unfortunately even command line does not work. It looks like it still relies on running a full node as you have to edit java files to increase memory limit. Found here: https://iotatangle.slack.com/files/U1VE8FAPN/F2A9HCV28/current_workaround_for_connection_refuse.txt - Unfortunately I'm not great enough to understand Java enough to customize and I can't find any guides to get into that part of it.

The issue is the node/client don't currently handle wallets with large transactions

The 'connection refused' is a standard error response to the client based on the real server response to the transaction limit exceed (you can see it using a wireshark http trace)

I already managed to build a 'read-access-synced' (transactions not allowed) node, saw my wallets and tested successfully with other stressed users

If you kept your seeds private everything is safe. Just wait for a newer version of the wallet.

just to clarify everyone:

  • I'm not part of the dev team. Just a project enthusiast and follower as an IT guy
    
  • the dev team has no access to your wallets or seeds (I hope not !).

Just to summarize and let everyone to understand:
ISSUE: users are getting connection error when trying to sign-in
CAUSE: wallets with a significant amount of transactions are disconnected after awhile by the nodes. There is a limit defined that prevents large amount of data transfers (max:1000).
WORKAROUND: (a) install a full node (or find one). (b) Define on the ini file the following parameter MAX_REQUESTS_LIST=10000. (c) connect the wallet. It takes more than 10-60 minutes for the node and the wallet to process all the records
SOLUTION: wait for a node and wallet releases

Again: I'm not related to the dev team (I'm just a IOTA supporter and enthusiast) and I found this by searching and code reading

I was having same problem as mentioned above, with less than 70 transactions. Few hours ago found a thread on github regarding same problem, with a link to website holding information of IOTA nodes. And guess what, after trying every available node inside IOTA wallet and getting "Connection Refused", I decided to try the new nodes out and it worked lke a charm! It usually takes a bit longer to log in but at least I managed to access my balance.
I think you should try it out, hope it works for you too.

Node that worked for me: https://potato.iotasalad.org:14265

Hi, it worked for me as well and I have access to the wallet but now I can't transfer the IOTA to another Seed and Address. I tried it with 1 IOTA 20h ago and its still pending despite multiple rebroadcast and reattaching.

Can someone help?

Many thx

commented Dec 12, 2017

@chris0r Yeah I have the exact same problem but my transaction has been pending for 5 days now. I understand it's because the node is at transaction capacity so we're queued up with a bunch of others. It was recommended to move to another node but we can't because potato is the only one that will allow seed login with connection refused error. So we are stuck on a rock in a hard place.

All we can hope is that IOTA team will place more priority on a working wallet and nodes. It's currently not capable of handling any transaction traffic so I wouldn't suggest sending any miota anywhere.

Same issue here. Connection refused. I also had mined (for 2 days only) at mineiota. Had only 2 or 3 transactions. With https://potato.iotasalad.org:14265 as a custom node it worked like a charm.

Thank you!

Hi, ok it worked for me after a while. What i did
Try first login ==> Connection refused
Switch to Full node ==> do not finalize the setting
Changed the connecting node, as example to : iota.bitfinex.com:80
Try login again ==> took 2 min , works
