I'd like to use a specified address using the
monero-wallet-cli and not a new one it generates. How could I accomplish this?
monero-wallet-cli operates on wallets, which contain private and public keys, which have addresses. Thus, to use the
monero-wallet-cli with a different address (not generated by your wallet), you have to generate a new wallet using the keys for that address or from the seed words of the wallet that first created the address.
... --generate-from-view-key arg Generate incoming-only wallet from view key --generate-from-spend-key arg Generate deterministic wallet from spend key --generate-from-keys arg Generate wallet from private keys wallet keys --generate-from-json arg Generate wallet from JSON format file ... or... --restore-deterministic-wallet Recover wallet using Electrum-style mnemonic seed
Once you've created a wallet for your address, you can then use it.
