I am having issues downloading a monero node. Here are some code prints. It is too much to paste here.

https://postimg.cc/gwzdcQr9 https://postimg.cc/3yfM8wPp

I am running this through clearnet you guys can see my ip so why am I still not allowed to download the node?

Examples of errors: I no available peer in gray list... D Destructing connection... T [sock -1] Socket destroyed without shutdown.

All the errors keep looping. If I am revealing anything sensitive on the pictures please let me know because doing this through complete clearnet which is risky for me.

I used the guide: https://www.getmonero.org/resources/user-guides/vps_run_node.html Linux64

FYI: Before I launched the daemon I moved the items in Linux folder up on directory with command mv monero-linux64/* monero-linux64/.*

The first part went through but there was an error that monero-linux/.* did not go through because to busy etc. That shouldn't matter right I just moved the stuff up one dir to the folder monero instead of keeping things two folders down idk.

    Hey guys so turns out that what was wrong was that my Internet provider has blocking my certain connections. For example at one point I read that I should execute "ping and I received "packets were filtered" as a response. So I had to get access to the internet through a different provider and now it is syncing like crazy. I guess the next question is how could I compare hashes of my node to other nodes just to make sure I have the right node. But I guessing maybe I don't have to do that?

  • You can, for example, use print_block <blockheight> in monerod and compare the block hash against the block hash listed on prominent block explorers.

In one of the well-known blockchain explorers: xmrchain.net , localmonero , exploremonero

In a terminal ./monerod print_height shows your local blockchain height. Or use webbrowser https://yournode.example.org:18081/get_info See monerod-reference #commands for more useful things.

Please ask your last question¹ again (and I'll put my answer there) so that it fits here on StackExchange. I still have too few points to comment, vote or edit others.

  • Okay sorry I am super late and will post that last question.
