How to run SmartNode on Windows Server 2016


#1

Hello everyone, please help with setting up smartnode on Win server 2016. I did all steps for running masternode, but it doesn`t work. At first it is pre_enabled than its status is New Start required.

  1. I have balance 10000 smart, have id and index and pasted it in file on appdata folder;
  2. I have smartnode key, generated in debug window;
  3. Sync completed with the blockchain;
  4. Have static ip;
    Is it real to set up Smartnode without rent of VPS?

Yes, you can set it up without renting a VPS if you have a static IP address that does not change.

You need to keep port 9678 open and your router needs to forward that port to your local computer (local IP or mac address setup), in order to keep the static IP address which you will add to smartnode.conf

You need to configure smartnode.conf in the %appdata% smartcash folder.

Here is an example configuration:

(put your actual IP address instead of 101.101.101.101)

rpcport=9679
rpcuser=putanythinghere
rpcpassword=putanythingherethatislongerthatworkslikeapssword
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
listen=1
server=1
daemon=1
smartnode=1
externalip=101.101.101.101:9678
smartnodeprivkey=Put_Your_Genkey_Here

I expect this would work. I have not tried it.

Note, if it doesn’t work try adding this as well. just a guess:

bind=your_local_computer_ip_address
bind=[::]:9678
