Excuse the noobness.

I have installed Monero GUI Wallet on a persistent TAILS OS USB bootable drive.

I have downloaded the Monero Blockchain and fully synhronized the Wallet and Daemon. All working fine.I used this guide (https://czechmonero.cz/monero-full-node-on-tails).

The guide advised to setup a REMOTE NODE which I have (Even though I have downloaded the full blockchain).

I go to ADVANCED - MINING but the option to START MINING is greyed out and I cannot start the process. I know it says "Mining is only available on local daemons" but anyone have any idea how to start the mining process wtih this setup - or is it not possible?

Thanks in advance.....

  • Don't think you can mine on a remote node. Even if on your own LAN. Maybe drop the, what sounds like, self hosted remote node? ( is the TAILS machine). You are remote'ing to yourself.

  • You need to start mining in the daemon (monerod) directly through start_mining <address>
