Vostok Node questions

Who’s is running a Vostok node and can answer some questions?

-What are the known peers for the Vostok nodes?(are the ones set as example in the conf usable?)

-Are there any mainnet nodes you can lease to and where can I find these?(or is it just the one you need to register for in the manual ?)

-Where will you put the files Api-key-hash.conf and accounts.conf

And are these files even necessary if you just want to POS with you own node to the mainnet?

-Can someone share their conf file so I can see what is actually needed to sync to the mainnet?(you can block out sensitive data just please write there what’s needed)

-Do you still need to generate the keys if you use the waves-crypto?

-Will your node even sync if you have less then 10000 or will it not start and give a error.

Hello!
-What are the known peers for the Vostok nodes?(are the ones set as example in the conf usable?)
Known peers - is a hosts, what have interconnection at your blockchain infrastructure.

-Are there any mainnet nodes you can lease to and where can I find these?(or is it just the one you need to register for in the manual ?)
You can find nodes in you client (Data→ All Transactions → Groups)

-Where will you put the files Api-key-hash.conf and accounts.conf
In directory with other configuration files. Link to documentation https://docs.vostok.io/en/how-to-setup/configuration-node.html

And are these files even necessary if you just want to POS with you own node to the mainnet?
Main configuration file described here https://github.com/vostokplatform/Vostok-Releases/blob/master/configs/partnerNet.conf

-Can someone share their conf file so I can see what is actually needed to sync to the mainnet?(you can block out sensitive data just please write there what’s needed)
You can find example node configs here https://github.com/vostokplatform/Vostok-Releases/blob/master/configs/

-Do you still need to generate the keys if you use the waves-crypto?
It still need, key generation discribed here https://docs.vostok.io/en/how-to-setup/configuration-node.html

-Will your node even sync if you have less then 10000 or will it not start and give a error.
The account balance must be at least 10 000 VST if you want to connect your node to the network “Vostok Mainnet” in other way you cant perform the registration, more here https://docs.vostok.io/en/how-to-use/add-node-mainnet.html

Best regards, Vostok Support Engineer.

Thank you for taking the time to answer, I have read the manual I know WHAT peers are I just don’t know which they are.

these i find in the documentation.

Peers network addresses and ports(conf file github)

#   Example: known-peers = ["mainnet-node-0.vostoknodes.com:6864", "mainnet-node-1.vostoknodes.com:6864"]
known-peers = [ ]

Manual
7. > known-peers = [ “privatenet-1.example.net:6864”, “privatenet-2.exemple.net:6864” ]

-These are examples not actual ? where can I find the actual peers.

-The partner-net.conf i can use also for the main-net ?

-And deducted from your answer all conf files go in the directory

  • Directory for configuration file - /etc/vostok/vostok.conf

Thanks

Hello!

You can’t, both configs have different genesis block and address scheme character.

This example from correct mainnet.config.
In this block (known-peers =[]) you need to set the address your private nodes.

ok so i am back to square 1 i have to alter the STANDARD .conf file from github

Known peers
How can I put there the address of my own node ? it cannot sync to my own chain because I have no chain ? I need the peers from the existing mainnet.

I think we are not understanding each other ?

I’ll try to help you. Yes, for your node to be able to connect to the blockchain network, you must specify the peers of the existing blockchain network in the config. There are three ways to do this:

  1. Deploy your network and use this peers.
  2. connect to the mainnet (and use mainnet-node-0.vostoknodes.com:6864 etc)
  3. connect to the partnernet (test blockchain, node0-partnernet.vostoknodes.com:6864 etc). Options 2 and 3 require an Jira approved request. Important - Vostok is a private network and in addition to peers, you must specify the network participants in the Genesis block or in the transaction type 111. I hope this point may be help you https://docs.vostok.io/en/how-the-platform-works/registration-node.html
