ok thanks that explains it. so its just the masternode key on the linux server and not the private key from windows. thanks!I think you're confusing your masternode key and your wallet private key (wallet password). Without the wallet password, nobody is getting any funds from your cold wallet.
No probs, very helpful thanks.Be wary of my explanations as I am still trying to fully understand the fundamentals of this technology myself. I have a dangerous amount of knowledge with a load of big gaps in the middle.
However, the masternodeprivkey that is in both of your conf files in a local cold - remote masternode is certainly not usable to unlock your local wallet and spend funds.
Yeah you can run the qt wallet as another local windows user and configure the darkcoin.conf file for each user account, or use the datadir option in a windows shortcut to the qt wallet for each instance of a config fileNo probs, very helpful thanks.
Does anyone know if it's possible to run multiple masternode wallets side-by-side on a single windows machine?
EDIT: I found this for mutiple wallets on Linux so am looking for Windows solution https://darkcointalk.org/threads/creating-your-second-third-fourth-etc-masternodes.1957/

Exactly like this ^Yes, it is possible.
Firstly, backup your existing wallet! (I accidentally overwrote a wallet trying this)
I run 5 masternodes so I have five subdirectories under User/Appdata/Roaming/Darkcoin called MN1, MN2, MN3, MN4, MN5
Create these folders empty.
Create a shortcut to QT and edit the target of the shortcut to read ....darkcoin-qt.exe -datadir=c:\Users\you\AppData\Roaming\MN1\
When you run this shortcut it will create a wallet and other necessary files in the subfolder MN1
Create folder for MN2...create shortcut for MN2...rinse repeat.
this link works https://raw.githubusercontent.com/d...naries/master/darkcoin-0.10.14.1-linux.tar.gzI am trying to download wallet
wget wget darkcoin-0.10.14.1-linux.tar.gz (cant post the link, so jsut added the end)
but all I get is 404 error. Do you guys perhaps know, what I am doing incorrectly?
Your initial password is in the web manager like the guide says. Not sure how you are running into difficulties. What error are you getting when you try to change your password?I am trying to setup testnet masternodes using Vultr (based on weirddog's guide) but stuck in changing the root password. Anyone is using Vultr at the moment? Help would be appreciated.

Hit c for command line and do passwd root. How did you manage to get to grub in the first place? What image did you choose to have installed and did you do anything after the VPS was setup in terms of keying, etc?Where do I go from here?
I clicked 'e' to add the passwd but didn't work. I guess this part has to be spoon fed
"passwd root"This what what I did:
Clicked "View Console" (then above window opens), clicked 'c' for "grub>" command line, I typed passwd root and it says: "error: can't find commans 'passwd'. What is the exact command?
"password root" says "two arguments expected"
