Can't detect valid external address


I setup Smartnode on AWS and it is sync’d now but I get this error:

“Not capable smartnode: Can’t detect valid external address. Please consider using the externalip configuration option if problem persists. Make sure to use IPv4 address only.”

I opened port 9678 on the inbound and the outpound, rebooted the instance several times, edited the smartcash.conf and added the externalip in the last line but it is not working. I still get the same error.

What am I missing?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.


I got this issue sorted out.
If you are using AWS, use the Public IP address in your smartnode.conf.
