 +==== Host troubleshooting checklist ====
 +
 +When troubleshooting a host problem make sure that:
 +
 +  - your host is reachable on port 9982, do this by using telnet on the address from a remote location. Test both IPv4 and IPv6
 +  - your wallet is unlocked on the host
 +  - your wallet contains enough funds to pay for collateral
 +  - your host has not reached its collateral budget
 +  - your collateral is equal to or higher than your storage price per TB
 +  - your max contract length is at least 3 months (preferably more)
 +  - your host has only one IP address announced (when using DNS you're only allowed to have one A and one AAAA record)

 ===== What About All The 2.5 SC Transactions? ===== ===== What About All The 2.5 SC Transactions? =====
  
-Those are host announcements.+The host tracks your current IP address and automatically 
 +re-announces every time that the IP address changes. If you 
 +have manually set the host's net address (which can be IPv4, 
 +IPv6, or a full hostname like myhost.sia.tech), then the host 
 +will stop tracking your IP address and instead just use the one 
 +you have set manually.
  
-(expand)+Each host announcement puts a transaction on the blockchain, and 
 +incurs a 2.5 SC fee. These announcements are a requirement if you 
 +have a constantly changing NetAddress because they are the only way 
 +that renter's can discover your new address and download their data. 
 +To stop these announcements, you either need to get a static IP 
 +address (your ISP can help you with this), or you need a solution 
 +like DynDNS.
