Masternode Setup Windows
« on: April 22, 2015, 04:17:50 PM »
Hi Mates,

please Update your Pool and Exchange. ( Wrong Fork @ minerpools)

Setting up a masternode part 1 - Windows

We will be using your home computer and a cloud vps server with ubuntu ($5 a month)

Create a new .txt file, we need to copy/paste a few codes/addresses

Start with a new wallet (0 balance) but first back up your old wallet.dat if you have coins in it ;)
Open te QT, and make sure you have your firewall accepting connections from the Limecoinx QT ;)

Let it sync up.

After you synced, go to Tools=>Debugconsole=>Console
Then typ : masternode genkey              
Press enter

You will see a large code, copy this code to the .txt file for now. We need this code later on when we are setting up a new Limecoinx.conf file

Go back to your Wallet=>Tools=>Debugconsole=>Console
Then typ : getaccountaddress 0

This will give you a new Limecoinx address. Copy this address to the .txt file for now. We need this address later on to sent EXACTLY 5000 LIMX  to it (more or less will not work!) so you are able to be a masternode ;)

Next you need to encrypt your wallet! Make sure you think of a strong password!
Settings=>encrypt wallet

After doing that your wallet needs to restart.
Code: [Select]
(Example Server conf)
Alright, It is time to sent those 5000 Limecoinx to the "address 0" you copy/pasted in the .txt file. make sure it is EXACTLY 5000!!  :D

If you have coins in your backed up wallet. Close down the Limecoinx QT and just switch your wallet.dat with the back up wallet.dat (the one with your coins in it ;)) make sure you dont remove or lose the other "masternode" one, just put it away somewhere else for a sec.
Restart the Limecoinx QT, Let it load, and you should see you have balance again from your backup wallet.

Send 5000 coins to the Limecoinx address we put in the .txt file earlier. Let it fully confirm in the blockchain.
Close the Limecoinx QT and swap the wallet.dat files again. You will now need the masternode wallet.dat file again.

Next, we need to make a new .conf file
(Your Client Remoute)
Code: [Select]

Change username/password
Replace the MasternodeGeneratedKey with the one you copy/pasted in the .txt file
Save as Limecoinx.conf (we all know where to put this right?)

masternodeaddr=UbuntuServerIP:8886 Will be used in Part 2.

To be continued!
