How can I stop Monero wallet safely? I can't stop the wallet using exit command.

When I check network connections by using:

netstat -pnt

It always shows some monero connection details. Can anyone give me a solution?

    Why can't you stop the wallet using the "exit" command ? – user36303 Feb 9 '18 at 10:18

Once you are in the wallet you can simple run exit, however it sounds like you want to stop monerod (the background daemon). In this case you would run monerod exit.

see How do I gracefully stop the monerod daemon process? for more info.

  • Hi farinspace, i have one more doubt, I need to bind the wallet to a particular port using monero-wallet-rpc --rpc-bind-port 18082 , then do i need to specify the port number when i going to stop the wallet.? if yes how can specify the port number? – Albert Feb 10 '18 at 7:59

How do you start the wallet? Let's say the command is monero, then you can kill the process with pkill monero

  • You do not need to specify the port number if you want to stop it, as far as i know. It's always the the same command and you want to stop that command. What port the command uses should not matter – Endogen Feb 10 '18 at 8:54
