Run full node in Windows
A fully set up node keeps track of the blockchain while the miners validate the blocks. This is required in order for the network to sync and run.
By running a full node, you are helping to secure the network. Best of all, running a node requires minimal hardware and can run on most modern computers/miners. Doing this, enables the wallets to sync up faster with the network itself.
1) Download and install the "SatoXcoin Core Wallet" for Windows.
2) Unzip the the files and start the "SatoXcoin Core Wallet" you downloaded.
3) Let the wallet fully Sync with the SatoXcoin Network. This can take some time to complete. The process will vary depending on your bandwidth and hardware ( It can take some time to complete ).
4) Once Fully Synced, navigate to "Wallet" > "Options…" Select "Main" tab> Check the box for "Start SatoXcoin Core on system login". > "OK" to finish.
Navigate to "Wallet" > "Options…" Select "Window" tab> Check the box "Hide tray icon" and "Minimize on close".
"OK" to finish.
This sets up your SatoX Core Wallet to auto-start during boot and minimize in the background every time you start your PC, by doing this, your wallet will always be up and running and synced.
5.) Navigate to Wallet > Options > Select Network tab> check the box "Map port using UPnP" >
"OK" to finish.
Congratulations! 🎉 Your node is now fully up and running!
To verify, navigate to Tools > Information.
Your full node should have both incoming connections and outgoing connections (it may take up to 15 minutes for incoming connections).
In the example below, we have 0 incoming and 6 outgoing connections (In: 0 / Out: 3).
p2p port=60777 rpc port=7777
If your equipment does not allow incoming connections using UPnP, you may need to allow incoming connections through opening the ports in the router/firewall, please read the instructions for your equipment.
