Hi @Chucky, this is very helpful information.
My aim is to run a test vnode on my home PC (which is a Chromebook running Linux). I have ordered a Mini PC called a Chuwi LarkBox which I intend to be a more permanent vNode, hence this Chromebook is my testing ground.
I wanted to see how difficult it would be for me to run a virtual node myself. I have run into a few glitches along the way (it hasn’t been all smooth sailing) but the community and yourself have been most helpful in addressing my questions.
I want to buy one of the new Node Trees once they becomes available, but my LarkBox will be an interim vNode solution. I really feel passionately about this project as privacy is essential for digital money to succeed.
I think I have sorted out my issues on my Chromebook and my Vnode is back up and running. I have been able to sort out opening ports on my router and Chromebook (something I’ve never done before).
I’m going to seem how things go with this Vnode and hope to earn some PRV from it soon.
Thanks again for all your help.
