    Still hasn't been enough time to worry. You started on the 23rd, there is 1218 masternodes and in an ideal world, 576 blocks found every day (2.5 minutes). So every masternode should get paid on average, every 1218/576 days (2.11). I would imagine you should be inline shortly. Further, how many confirmations do you have on the initial 1000 transfer. You need the number of masternodes in blocks give or take to be eligible into the list iirc (I believe that check was made in the recent versions). So if there are 1218 masternodes at the time you started yours, 1218 confirmations have had to happen before you are on the list for round robin.

    Thanks Propulsion and oblox for the help.

    The initial payment has 1389 confirmations. 'm not sure if this is the case since I've seen many other nodes come online later than me and still be ok. The reason I ask is that I did it this way. I bought my darkcoins from an exchange and transferred it to the first 0 address that I created using my wallet. However the exchange transferred 999.999 coins only and as such I was advised to not reuse that address again.

    So what I did was rename the first 0 address's label, went to the local wallet console and generated a new 0 address which then appeared as 0. Within the wallet I then transferred the 1000 coins into the new 0 address in one transaction. Within my wallet it just shows 0.00 cause from the wallet's perspective it was an internal transfer so not credit. However I can see that the address now holds 1000 coins in one transaction which you can verify as well. I did wait for the requisite 15 confirmations before making the node (it wouldn't allow me otherwise anyway).

    I was told that this shouldn't be an issue but just wondering if this might affect things.

    How long would I need to wait till I realize that something is really wrong?

    Your MN ip address is showing active with '1'. As long as it remains at '1' you'll be fine. Nothing looks wrong at all, sometimes it just takes some time to receive a payment.

    You should be fine. Just so you know, the label no longer is required to be 0 for it to work. I would say since you had it setup on the 23rd, if you don't receive payment in the next 12 hours, something is wrong. As propulsion said, if you are showing a 1 and your ip address is on the list, then you are on the list for getting paid.

    Your setup and network presence looks good. Just be patient for the next few days.

    Once you get your first payment, subsequent payments will be fairly predictable (within a half day or so.).

    In the meantime, don't fret about it.

    Is there a particular reason why the first payment takes longer than subsequent payments?

    Because you aren't in the masternode list for round robin. Once in the list, frequency evens out.

    On drk.mn it says port is closed on your MN... Is it still running?

    EDIT: Well, it's running for sure, I just checked by myself (connected to your MN directly and connection is fine). Not sure why it shown as "Closed" on drk.mn then...

    EDIT2: It just turned "Open" again... Let's wait then... Maaan, I'm waiting for your first payment like it's mine :D

    Thanks yeah I've been doing random port checks on it too...to make sure it's open.

    Still no sign :( Really wonder what's up or whether it's something to do with the method I used.

    Thanks UdjinM6 for looking into this!

    And the clock ticks on... 3d12h58m25s

    Have you checked to see if your MN is on the MN list?

    Quick update. tungfa told me to try adding masternodeaddr to the remote config.

    Remote:

    [email protected]:~$ cat .darkcoin/darkcoin.conf
    rpcuser=X
    rpcpassword=X
    rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
    listen=1
    server=1
    daemon=1
    logtimestamps=1
    maxconnections=256
    masternode=1
    masternodeprivkey=X
    masternodeaddr=103.25.203.25:9999
    addnode=23.23.186.131
    Have restarted darkcoind as well.

    [email protected]:~$ grep HotCold .darkcoin/debug.log
    2014-11-27 05:41:51 CActiveMasternode::EnableHotColdMasterNode() - Enabled! You may shut down the cold daemon.

    [email protected]:~$ darkcoind masternode list | grep 103.25.203.25
    "103.25.203.25:9999" : 1,​

    On the local side:

    darkcoin.conf
    rpcuser=X
    rpcpassword=X
    rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
    listen=0
    server=1
    daemon=1
    logtimestamps=1
    addnode=23.23.186.131
    masternode=1
    masternodeprivkey=X
    masternodeaddr=103.25.203.25:9999​

    Wallet shows started in masternode mode.

    Btw when I typed masternode start I placed in a wrong password and it still said masternode started remotely.

    13:41:11 Welcome to the DarkCoin RPC console.
    Use up and down arrows to navigate history, and Ctrl-L to clear screen.
    Type help for an overview of available commands.
    13:43:54 walletpassphrase X 120
    13:43:54
    13:44:18 masternode start WRONGPASSWORDINTENTIONALLY
    13:44:18 masternode started remotely
    13:44:49 masternode start X
    13:44:49 masternode started remotely​

    Everybody, don't mess with masternodes that already appear on the network.

    Be patient! Restarting your masternode may take you offline while selected for block reward!

    If you appear on drk.mn and other people see your ip in their masternode list output leave it alone.

    side note: My remote configs all have 'masternodeaddr=ip:9999', but the code indicates it will identify the local ip if not present.

    - Replace "masternodeaddr" with "externalip" in remote config. Yes, it will try to get IP automatically and you are already in list so it should be fine, but I highly suggest to keep everything consistent. And masternodeaddr works for local side only to point your local wallet to your remote masternode.
    - It took you less then 120 seconds after "walletpassphrase X 120" (where X I assume was correct passphrase) so wallet was still unlocked and your third part in "masternode start WRONGPASSWORDINTENTIONALLY" was simply ignored.

    EDIT: slightly corrected to make things clearer.

    Yup! When speaking to flare he mentioned that my first masternode issue was due to 'dust'? Said bug in the protocol or something so it wasn't quite my setup. Just don't fund your masternode addresses directly from an exchange.
