Set up a Nxt Public Node

249 NXT

Bounty ID

Ardor / Nxt Group will give 249 NXT to every person who sets up a new NXT node with a one year server contract in the month of July. Let’s build our network! 

**The bounty is limited to 50 total payouts. Each person is limited to two nodes.

**The bounty is for new server instances. If you set up a new Ardor server for a bounty during the month of July, you will receive a bonus of 49 NXT if you run a Nxt Node on the same server.

Follow the guideline below.

To collect your bounty, send your NXT account number and the IP address of your server and the date the client was set up so it can be found on the blockchain for verification.

Please attach a screenshot of your server contract to prove that it was purchased for one year. 

The nodes must be installed and running properly, please test before you claim a bounty.

NXT Public Node Setup

NXT Public Node Setup

1. Get a Server

There are many reliable server providers and these instructions can be used for most of them..

  • Choose your server - you do not need a large, expensive instance.
  • These instructions are written for Ubuntu, so choose Ubuntu 16.04 (64 Bit) when ordering.

2. Prepare the Server

  • Sign in to the Control Panel.
  • You may be asked to set a hostname for the server - any name will work and will be used to identify the server. 
  • Use the built in console or open a command line box on your computer to run the following commands:
  1. apt-get update
  2. apt-get install openjdk-8-jre nano screen ufw
  3. ufw default deny incoming
  4. ufw allow 7876
  5. ufw allow 7874
  6. ufw enable

3. Install the NXT Client

  1. wget
  2. unzip

4. Configure Properties

  1. cd nxt/conf
  2. nano

Add this to new file:
CTRL X and then Y to save.

5. Run the Node

  1. cd ../
  2. screen bash ./
  • The NXT blockchain will download. 
  • Screen bash command allows you to close the command window while the client to continues to run.
  • Visit the client in browser here: http://IPaddress:7876
