If you have not read up our part 2, click here to read it first as this is the continuation of part 2.
Usually you have to download this thing called a PuTTY which is easier for Aaron to control the VPS itself
[Treff] PuTTY ah? PuTTY is just like a remote to enter anything much more easily
[Leon] So I would say, it’s something like a GUI. It’s like an interface
[Treff] Yup, especially if let’s say you have to key in the password itself, yup you can go through here. Because you can just copy and right click on the Putty itself
[Treff] So download it here, but just now we have already downloaded it
[Leon] So where do we go after we click it?
[Treff] Yup, depending on which windows you’re using or which other you’re using. But for us we’re using Windows. So we have already downloaded it just now. Okay so the host name. The host name will be the IP address itself. That is from my address. Usually you can copy & paste.
Okay so usually at the start you can “Login as: root” Then after that usually you have your whole password. But just now I have already installed. Okay, so let’s say you have your whole password right you can just highlight your password then you can just go inside PuTTY right-click and press enter.
But in this case we have already set so in this case I will just key in our password. This is the password that I have created just now. What I like about this Crowdfunding coin right, is that there is only one transcript to run. Usually for other coin itself, there is a lot, much more commands to run. So, over here there is only this command. So copy, then after that same thing, right-click over here. Once you right click you will paste. Run the program and press Enter.
We have gotten the final solution which is something like this. So your VPS port is here, your private key is also here. So just now before we start the session we haven’t really configured the masternode so over here is blank. So we are gonna show you how to configure the masternode.
[Leon] Alright man! So as we speak, we got one coin. We got like how many dollars? One Dollar? We just made one dollar through staking.
So usually, there is a few Masternodes. For in this case we must always type”Masternodes genkey”
[Treff] So I’m trying to look for the private key and also the transaction key itself
[Leon] Oh, so you’re gonna expose your private key? (really Treff… -_-)
[Treff] The main thing that we must be careful of is the “wallet.dat” file
Okay, so this is the transfer hash. We have to configure the masternode itself. So we’ll be having to open this file. We will have to enter in this format
So it has masternode 1, which is the alias, IP Address, and Masternode Private key which later on we’ll copy from here. Lastly it is the transfer hash
Once you’ve entered everything, always be sure to double check whether you’ve input the correct information. So once that’s done right, save the file and you have to go to Masternode then update status. Usually a restart of the client is required. Once you’re able to see your masternodes, it means it’s live!
[Treff] Just waiting for it to sync then after that we can start the alias. Some Masternode requires you to change a few settings.
Go to “tools”, “debug console” and type the command inside, lets say “start masternode alias” MN1. But some masternode will be much more easier to start the alias.
Alias?[Leon] What is an “alias”?
[Treff] It’s a custom name given to that particular set of masternodes. It can be anything. Once you’re done syncing, you can actually start the alias.
One thing about most masternodes is that usually they don’t have the whole instructions online so sometime you have to figure your way out.
