Not capable smartnode: Can't detect valid external address


#1

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

Yes, this node status error is quite common. I already added it to the SmartNodes.cc FAQ.

On VPS first stop your node:

./smartcash-cli stop

Then add the following line to smartcash.conf:

externalip=PUT_EXTERNAL_IP_OF_YOUR_NODE_HERE

Finally restart your node:

./smartcashd
