Tor is banned in certain countries and even some ISPs. This wallet requires the Tor browser to be running.
Make sure you have the Tor browser installed and running:
Make sure "Auto Connect" is UNchecked
Step 3 is optional if steps 1 and 2 didn't help !
- Update your network.py
a) Browse to: https://github.com/vergecurrency/electrum-xvg-tor/blob/master/lib/network.py
b) Right click on the "Raw" button towards the top right of the page, and "Save Link As"
c) Explore your drive to where you have Electrum-XVG files installed
d) Go into the lib folder
e) Replace the existing network.py with the network.py you downloaded
If you are still having issues -- tinker around with the Network Settings screen. Try:
-using/not using SSL
-select each server individually and CHECK autoconnect
-change the proxy
Most of all, just try to be patient!
