Run a NODE server/info


#1

Hello,

where can I find more info about how to run a node (after main-net)?

is it possible to use windows servers?

Thank You.


#2

Information isn’t released yet but only linux and MacOS to start.


#3

windows systems will happen later


#4

I’m on Windows 10 does that mean I won’t be able to run a node to start with?


#5

kCTO said windows wouldn’t be supported right away. So you can use a digital ocean linux cloud server like i suggested instead of your local computer. Or buy a computer and run linux on it. or a MacOS

Its not very safe to run a node on the main wallet, why don’t use windows server VPS from the start?


#7

VPS is the best idea


#8

Vps is the best idea, native linux of course, but if you want you can always use a virtualization software to run a linux node on windows.


#9

you give the node your public address and the node never has access to your private key on a rrmote server. No security concern there.


#10

Digital Ocean it is then, once the node instructions are released I’ll get my computer technician to walk me through it.


#11

where can I find this software?


#12

Search about virtual machine. VirtualBox is well known free software. VMware provides free version for personal users. There is a bunch of others. Any of them will do.


#13

What version of Linux should I create using VirtualBox?


#14

I would wait for the specs for testnet in March. but I will run ubuntu 64 bit and it should work no problem


#15

I also recommend ubuntu. You need iso image of it. Download ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-i386.iso from here.

Is it possible for Boscoin team prepare a video to explain how prepare a computer with Ubuntu to be a node?
This should help a lot those like me that dont have experience in mining.

Yes we will do that but it’s not out yet. End of march
