Alright, seems the way to do it then would be to use a T2.medium. Lol, yeah it would be nice to have more than six IP's....

I guess I'll go ahead and kill my micros and put them all on one instance. Thanks stonehedge.

I'm considering paying a bounty to anybody who can help me set up the following on a T2.medium

You can only bind six private IPs to each network interface with T2.medium. Even if eth1 has an EIP, inbound traffic gets routed to eth0 and dropped by default. I can't think of a way to achieve this without asymmetric routing which is NOT going to be good for masternodes ;)

This is how I'd want it to work.
¦ User Proc ¦
nm01 darkcoind <-> eth0 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm02 darkcoind <-> eth0 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm03 darkcoind <-> eth0 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm04 darkcoind <-> eth0 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm05 darkcoind <-> eth0 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm06 darkcoind <-> eth0 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
--------------------------------------------------------------
nm07 darkcoind <-> eth1 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm08 darkcoind <-> eth1 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm09 darkcoind <-> eth1 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm10 darkcoind <-> eth1 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP
nm11 darkcoind <-> eth1 <-> PrivIP <-> EIP

Have you actually received a monthly invoice yet for the total cost? I'm seriously interested in moving multiple micros to a single instance if possible. My last invoice was around $130.00 if I remember correctly.
7 x EC2 T1 micro this month
luglio $117.85
agosto $131.94
septembre $132.99

Need to test it at least could lower the costs....

That's roughly the same price point as mine. Non-spot instances too.

Now we just need to find someone to report their monthly cost figures for a single medium instance running 5 daemons to compare.

I can't easily quote monthly figures because I have many instances doing many different things in my AWS account.

What I can say is that last month, the most that I was charged for a T2.medium with 6 masternodes was $1.58 per day. My monthly bandwidth fee was $7 (but that includes all manner of instances including several C3.large)

Take things one step further. Here is what the EC2 price calculator says for one fully utilised T2.medium with 5 EIP (you can run six masternodes with 5 EIP if you launch new instance), 10GB intra region traffic, 1 30GB SSD and 100GB internet traffic.

So roughly $55 a month instead of $130?

Probably, yes! It is quite hard for me to be exact about data usage as I have lots going on in AWS. I wish I could be definitive but I can't be any more definitive than telling you the few facts that I know and pointing you towards the AWS calculator.

To put it another way, $55 is somewhat lost in my total monthly AWS bill. I've got a lot going on at the moment :D

If anybody is in doubt, why not look at their bill from last month and run it through the calculator to see what it would cost on a T2.medium?

Some observations.

1) Look out for the typos in his iptables...there are couple of whitespaces missing ;)
Do you happen to remember where the missing whitespaces were a problem? I'm rather new to this and am running into a binding error when I try to start darkcoind.

This won't be a whitespace issue...sounds to be like one of your darkcoin.conf files has a duplicate RPC Port...

Hello,
I did the entire configuration procedure, but I was unable to raise two instances of the daemon. Correct me if I'm wrong:

I'm placing each daemon in each user's home folder and configuring the .conf file as taught and then I'm trying to link the daemons separately in each directory, but I have the following error when placing the second daemon to run:
"Error: Cannot obtain a lock on data directory /root/.lqxcore. Lqx Core is probably already running."
Should I not run a daemon for each user?
What am I doing wrong? Need help.

My t1.micro instances are starting to get CPU maxed out on a fairly regular basis so I'm having a play with a t2.medium with a view to running a few on it. I've got one mnode up and running and it is purring like a kitten.
