Guide / Tutorial on how to setup a remote syndicate / synx masternode to earn SYNX yield.
- Ubuntu VPS from VULTR (cheapest VPS is enough)
- Syndicate Wallet on local Computer
Controllers Wallet = Wallet on local Computer
Masternode Wallet = Wallet on remote VPS Server
Syndicate Controllers Wallet Setup
First, open Syndicate Wallet and go to “debug window”.
In this debug window, go to “Console” and type in “masternode genkey”. Save the output to a text file called “masternode.txt”.
Now create a “new Address” called “Masternode1”.
Then, go to tab “send” and send EXACTLY 5,000 SYNX to your Masternode1 address. Wait for 15 Confirmations.
Open the debug window again and type in “masternode outputs”. Save both values in the masternode.txt file.
Ubuntu VPS Setup
If you don’t have a VPS already, get the 1GB Ram VPS from Vultr: Rent VPS
Install Ubuntu OS onto it.
Connect to your Ubuntu VPS via SSH and update & upgrade the server first.
apt-get update apt-get upgrade
Now add a user and add him in the sudoers group so he has root access.
adduser synx adduser synx sudo
Now change to user “synx” and setup SSH keys for enhanced Security.
su synx ssh-keygen -b 4096 cd .ssh cat id_rsa.pub >> authorized_keys
Now save the private key “id_rsa” to your clients computer so you can authenticate to the server with the SSH Certificate. (You must convert id_rsa to a “.ppk file in order to use the privatekey with Putty)
Restart the SSH Server and test if the authentication with the private key works.
sudo service ssh restart
If it works, edit the SSH config file to disable password authentication & root login.
sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Change following Values in the file.
PasswordAuthentication no UsePAM no PermitRootLogin no
SYNX Masternode Setup
First we install Syndicate onto the ubuntu vps server.
Download the script and execute it with Python.
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/SyndicateLtd/install-guide/master/synx.py && python synx.py
The Script will automatically install syndicated on your Linux Server. Follow the Script and answer the questions.
Final Syndicate Masternode Setup Step
Back on the local Computer, go to “%appdata%/Syndicate/Syndicate.conf” and add these 2 lines with your values. (You set rpcuser & rpcpassword on the vps)
Open Syndicate Wallet on local Computer and go to “masternodes” tab.
Click “Create..” and input all the values. The last 3 values are the ones you stored in the “masternode.txt” file.
MN1 = Masternode alias
123:220.42.69:9999 = IP address & port of remote ubuntu masternode vps
YOURMASTERNODEPRIVKEY = output of “masternode genkey” command
YOURSYNXTXID = 1. value of output of “masternode outputs” command
0 = 2. value of output from “masternode outputs” command in debug window
Now click “Start” and the Masternode should start successfully!
