Is it normal that the testnet wallet that I'm using for solo mining is always synching and reporting that it is 0 hours behind? Only when I'm mining though...

Just stopped mining, let QT catch up and then started mining again. You never know, I may have failed to check it was synced in the first place.

Gasp! What if testnet is actually the real mainnet and mainnet is testnet? ::mind blown::

So am I setting up a normal masternode with a testnet wallet & chucking testnet=1 in the darkcoin.conf file? Port 9999 or 9998?

RPC port can be anything. Your firewall needs to be open to 19999 though.

Normal masternode except that you can run with a hot wallet without fear.

Easy tiger, you guys are on another level.

I stop my wallet in windows, rename the wallet.dat, let it create a new wallet, send 1000 DRK to that wallet and FTP it into my VPS then change permissions...

All my Masternodes are hot wallets, I just use a long password...

I don't have a static IP and I wanna use AWS for remote for setting up MNs. Is it OK to set IP at "Anywhere" (0.0.0.0 or somehting like this) instead of "My IP"? Can this be used to steal the coins in my local wallet? Or as long as the local wallet encrypted, I shouldn't worry about it.

Sorry mate. I might be on another level but that level is probably below most people. I'm half informed, loaded, safety off and ready to fire off bad advice.

No, that's fine, it just means your VPS can theoretically be accessed by someone else. Your local wallet is safe.

If you know the IP range(s) your ISP hands out, you can put those in to at least limit access to your own ISP's users... but for testnet I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Are we still talking about testnet? You don't need to fear theft of testnet coins - i run every testnet node as hot :D

nope. I am not worried about test coins ;) I was asking that about mainnet MNs setup.

edit: Right now I am setting up testnet MNs to learn and once I feel comfortable will switch to mainnet.
