Not capable smartnode: Can't detect valid external address


I’m setting up the smartnode and I’m almost done however I’m getting error on Section 8, step 7. when checking the status. Here is the screen output

smartadmin@Smartnode01-nas:~/.smartcash$ smartcash-cli smartnode status
“vin”: “CTxIn(COutPoint(0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000, 4294967295), coinbase )”,
“service”: “[::]:0”,
“status”: “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 have not received any errors prior to this step so everything else works fine. I’ve also checked smartcash.conf file and there is no mention of IPV4, what am I missing here? I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks in advnace

On VPS first stop your node:

./smartcash-cli stop

Then add the following line to smartcash.conf:


Finally restart your node:
