Is it possible to generate a main net address already?

Rm testnet3 since your upgrading

I didn't upgrade. RC4 was the first one I installed

It keeps saying validated 0 transactions

You swtich so reftech key

You had fetch testnet

? Im sorry I am not following you

How do I refresh key?

Fetchparam in bêta guide

I did that already, it was that 900MB download.

Then create the main net. Conf

what's your zcash.conf look like?

testnet=0
addnode=mainnet.z.cash
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
gen=1

Keep in mind its in slowmode launch you have nothing to validate yet

Do you have a two folders for zcash? One is .zcash and has the zcash.conf and then a second folder for zcash (no period preceding)?

Yes I do....

edit the zcash.conf in the .zcash (period) folder and run zcashd from the zcash (no period). If you leave off the -daemon you you get the node info feedback from the terminal. You can then run the zcash-cli commands in the .zcash terminal.

Yes that's what I did

When I run the regular terminal, it doesn't let me type. It says CTRL+C to terminate.

leave that running in that terminal and open another one in the .zcash folder. Run your zcash-cli commands from there

So open 2 terminals in total?

I can't run the ./zcash-cli into the /root/.zcash folder it says "./zcash-cli: No such file or directory"

Sorry, I've confused myself. See if this helps.

Edit zcash.conf in the .zcash folder.

Run zcashd in the zcash folder ( ./src/zcashd)

If you don't use the -daemon then run zcash-cli in a separate terminal (./src/zcash-cli getinfo)

In the terminal that is running the node, does it look like it's connected?
