  8. Intro
  9. -----
  10. Bitcoin is a free open source peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is
  11. completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted
  12. parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly
  13. with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
  14. Setup
  15. -----
  16. Unpack the files into a directory and run bitcoin-qt.exe.
  17. If you have Microsoft Security Essentials, you need to add bitcoin.exe to its
  18. "Excluded processes" list. Microsoft Security Essentials->Settings tab,
  19. select Excluded processes, press Add, select bitcoin.exe, OK, Save changes.
  20. The software automatically finds other nodes to connect to. You can
  21. enable Universal Plug and Play using a menu entry or set your firewall
  22. to forward port 8333 (TCP) to your computer so you can receive
  23. incoming connections. Bitcoin works without incoming connections,
  24. but allowing incoming connections helps the Bitcoin network.
