MASTERNODE SETUP GUIDE Omegacoin (OMEGA) 0.12.5.2
- a VPS server with Ubuntu (16.x, 18.x), Debian 9.x (Rent a Server Guide)
- installation directory /root (Install dependencies Guide)
STEP 1 – DOWNLOAD AND SYNC THE WINDOWS WALLET
Here are the download links.
After the installation and starting the new wallet it needs some time to find network connections to other nodes. Please be patient for a moment.
STEP 2 – SETTING UP THE COLLATERAL TRANSACTION
The first step involves sending exactly the needed masternode collateral about 1000 to a new wallet address. You’ll want to have a small amount above to cover the transaction fee, so you’ll need to have a starting balance of at least, say 1001 OMEGA. First, we’ll create a new wallet address to hold the collateral.
In the QT wallet, choose: File->Receiving addresse… and give it a label, such as MN01
Click Request Payment to create the address. You’ll see the new address. Choose Adddress Copy to store that address in the clipboard.
Click Close to exit the receiving address dialog. Now we’ll send the collateral amount to the address you just created.
Under the Send tab, paste the address that you copied into the Pay To: field. The Label field should pre-populate with the label you gave it earlier, in this case, MN01 and in the Amount: field, enter the actual collateral (1000 OMEGA)
Click Send and your transaction will be broadcast to the network
You’ll need to wait for 15 confirmations (the current number of confirmations is viewable in the Transactions tab before the masternode will fully activate. But now wait at least 1 confirmation before you follow the guide.
We can start working through the rest of the setup in the meantime
All is clear till now? This part was successful? When yes go to the next step, when no start over. All steps are easy and clear. Read, understand and do it.
STEP 3 – LOGGING INTO YOUR VPS WITH PUTTY
To access the VPS, we need to use a protocol called SSH. An SSH session will give you command-line access to your VPS and will be the mechanism we use for running commands on the Linux machine. We’ll use a program called PuTTY. (For OSX users, you can use your Terminal and just run the command ssh root@<YOUR VPS IP ADDRESS>)
The latest version of PuTTY can be downloaded from here. Install PuTTY and run it. Once open, you’ll see the standard PuTTy interface: Under Host Name, enter the IP address for your VPS.
You’ll likely see a security alert listing the ssh key fingerprint, choose Yes. Next up, you’ll see the login prompt for your VPS.
Note that in PuTTY, a right-click will paste the contents of your clipboard. So if you’re copying and pasting the root password, a right-click will paste. You won’t see any *’s or feedback for the password when you paste it, so just hit Enter after pasting. If you get an Access Denied message, double-check your root password and try typing it in manually rather than pasting.
