No WIF Error starting rpc server
« on: January 29, 2015, 05:57:14 PM »

Client gives error at start: No WIF Error starting rpc server

I see the rpc detail in config.json has
Code: [Select]
    "encrypted_rpc_endpoint": "127.0.0.1:0",
    "encrypted_rpc_wif_key": "",

but are we supposed to be using that and if so, how? I tried to put a random detail there but error then suggests that is invalid; so, I expect there is a way to generate a real private key.

You can use the bts_create_key utility (in programs/utils) to generate a private key to use. We should make it disable encrypted RPC if no key is provided.

good to know we actually "have" an encrypted RPC interface ... where can I read how to connect and use it?

Requires using our c++ code to talk to it.   It is used by the light wallet.
