Can I have several nodes/clients behind the same IP address?
Yes. You may have multiple nodes behind a single IP address but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you increase the chance of earning more rewards.
Do I require a static IP address to run a node?
Yes, you need a static IP address to run a node. In most cases, you will have to configure your router to port forward. A static IP address gives a fixed address to your computer on the local network at your business. Port forwarding is used by computers on the Internet to connect to a specific device on your internal network. To set up port forwarding, you must assign specific ports or a range of ports to a specific IP address.
How do I get one?
You may get a static IP address from your internet service provider or the easier option is to run the node on a VPS with a static IP like Digitalocean or Vultr. As the node runs in a docker container, it will be fairly easy to spin a radix node in minutes.
What are the minimum hardware requirements to run a node?
The current requirements are
- 2 CPU cores
- 8 GB memory
- 256 GB disk
Is there a guide to set up a node?
A pre-release guide to help you get started with the node-client software is published.Click here to read. We will notify you when the node client is released.
Do you need Radix tokens to host a node?
No, you do not require tokens to host a node.
Is there a main net or testnet to test or run a node?
There’s a private testnet on https://explorer.radixdlt.com/, but no public testnet yet, there will be open developer alpha/beta in the near future.
