Thank you, @dincho for the help!
Alright, I created the non-privileged user as instructed.
I started epoch again as the new user… (BTW… I have to set my ulimit every time I restart the node.)
When I do “curl http://184.108.40.206:3013/v2/top” to see if i’m connected to the testnet, it does return a hash, and I do see the height of the blockchain increase every time I enter this command .
As before, when I “curl http://127.0.0.1:3003/v2/top” to see the top of the blockchain as seen by my node, I fail to connect “Connection Refused”, but even when I try to go to this IP from my internet browser, I get the same response.
Now, when I check the logs… The mining log, and epoch_pow_cuckoo logs are both completely empty. The epoch and crash logs do not have any new information at all, nothing from today at all. All I see in the epoch and crash logs, are the old privileged user errors from yesterday. Shouldn’t I see something at least in the epoch log from today?
Still wondering if my port info is correct on my firewall, and in my .yaml file? They are configured as above, in my earlier reply from yesterday. Do I need to allow any additional ports and/or change the “websocket” setting in the .yaml?
If it helps, I did do “bin/epoch check_config epoch.yaml”, and it did check out “OK” by the way.
Also… Just noticed that in /tmp/node, that no “keys” dir was created.
Thanks again for the assistance!
