[quote=“peerchemist, post:23, topic:3827”][quote=“Automatic Monkey, post:22, topic:3827”]OK, I booted up Les :o Raspbian on my Pi and it loads and works perfectly. Couldn’t have been more straightforward. Downloaded blockchain and it’s showing 8 connections.
A few questions on it’s use:
Do I have to do anything to my router to make it function as a full node, and will I still have to do that if I use tor?
Can I transfer the coins from my existing wallet just by copying the wallet.dat from the machine they are currently running on? The reason I want to do that is to preserve the coin age on my holdings.
Is there any disadvantage to using the qt interface? If I do that I can just input the private key from my current address and transfer the coins that way.
Thanks in advance.[/quote]
Glad it worked well for you
If you did not get more than 8 connections automatically, that means that you should open port 9901 at your router. The procedure is the same for Tor end regular mode.
Yes, you can just transfer wallet.dat to your Peerbox.
There are no disadvantages of using QT wallet. There are just the same and equally secure, however QT wallet is not yet well integrated in Peerbox. That means some of
peerbox -* commands will not work.[/quote]
OK! That’s fine by me, I’m more familiar with the QT console commands anyway and would rather use those. Tonight will be the big night, when I transfer all my staking coins from my vault desktop to the Pi.
By the way there is still some of the Bitcoin verbiage left behind in the QT wallet, requests to enter your Bitcoin address.
