MASTERNODE SETUP GUIDE Plexus (PLXS)

STEP 1 – DOWNLOAD AND SYNC THE WINDOWS WALLET

Here are the download links.

Plexus Win 64 Linux.tar.gz

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 10000 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 10001 PLXS. 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 (10000 PLXS)

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 – SET MASTERNODE CONFIG (WIN WALLET)

Now hopefully your transaction to yourself has been confirmed.

Go to Tools → Debug Consol

Type the command below and press enter

  • masternode outputs

It should print something like this: {“a61877d567694a5f050cfbca8104e53e349076149af7cb6c37e013e62565377f”:“1”}

The long string is the transaction id of your payment and the number is transaction ID . You will use them shortly.


Type the command below and press enter

  • masternode genkey

Go to the tools tab within the wallet and click open “masternode configuration file”

  • Fill in the form.
  • Type MN01
  • Then the IP of your VPS and Portnumber 38221
  • Then the PrivKey, this is your masternode GenKey
  • The TxHash is the transaction ID/long key that you copied to the text file.
  • The Output Index is the 0 or 1 that you copied to your text file. 

Example: MN01 127.0.0.1:3883 BuDDDVRiWNCL3RF4bCQvPixRWwPpXj2W1iJaDDJtN64TvvoVS 63a2ba1c72d71507ca5fd54f183e205444bcda031e4aeb90d03ab5aa1ab10a08 1

!Everything in a line with only one space between the phrases!

Click “File Save”

STEP 4 – 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.

STEP 5 – INSTALL THE MASTERNODE
  • swget -q https://raw.githubusercontent.com/PlexusCoin/Plexus-MN-guide/master/MN_Install_x86_64_ubuntu16.sh
  • sudo bash MN_Install_x86_64_ubuntu16.sh
  • Write your Privatekey from Step 3
  • Enter
  • systemctl stop Plexus.service
  • sudo nano /root/.plexus/plexus.conf
