ProtoShares TestNet support
« on: January 16, 2014, 07:59:38 pm »
I think the ProtoShares good enought coin to have TestNet implementation. Unfortunatelly it's wasn't implemented from begining and I don't think I need to explain here the advantages of TestNet support which we missed.
Now we have it implemented!

I already submit pull request to official ProtoShares repository and think it's will be accepted soon:
https://github.com/InvictusInnovations/ProtoShares/pulls

To test TestNet functionality I use build-in ProtoShares miner and GetWork Coyote Miner 0.3.0: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=573.0

Happy TestNet mining!



You can download precompiled Windows binary with TestNet from: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dt9m8x98z5jfgji/protoshares-0.4.0-testnet.zip
MD5 of zip is 82f62d45657a352daa6147bc0eaddd7b

To run ProtoShares client in TestNet use command:
Code: [Select]
protoshares-qt.exe -testnet
Default TestNet RPC port is 13838. Because Coyote Miner 0.3.0 doesn't support port settings you need to add folowing lines into your protoshares.conf:
Code: [Select]
listen=1
daemon=1
server=1
rpcuser=user
rpcpassword=password
rpcallowip=*
rpcport=3838

When you can run Coyote Miner 0.3.0 as:
Code: [Select]
gw_miner.exe <IP address of wallet machine> user password
Coyote Miner 0.3.0 sometimes crashes, you can workaround this using .bat file:
Code: [Select]
:start
gw_miner.exe <IP address of wallet machine> user password
goto start

Great work testz... I will send you a 1 pts TIP once we validate your pull request.   Honestly, supporting PTS is low on the priority right now compared to getting MVP of BitShares X out ASAP.

ProtoShares will have long live and I think support of ProtoShares infrastructure also very important for us.
But I'm sure that this job can be done by community, which gives you a time to concentrate of BitShares X development.

PS: Next thing which we really need in ProtoShares, it's a regular (Bitcoin style) Windows installer. This is what I can and will do after TestNet.
