New to running testnet


#1

I set up zcash testnet as per: these instrucitons. When finished installing I run,

zcash-cli getinfo

And get:

{
"version" : 1000000,
"protocolversion" : 170002,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"balance" : 0.00000000,
"blocks" : 3114,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 8,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 58.38871760,
"testnet" : true,
"keypoololdest" : 1473877618,
"keypoolsize" : 101,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"relayfee" : 0.00005000,
"errors" : "This is a pre-release test build - use at your own risk - do not use for mining or merchant applications"
}

Then I run:

zcash-cli listtransactions

And get:

[
]

No wallet address? Any ideas what I may have screwed up? Thank you everyone.

Looks like the server running normally. Wait for a couple of hours. Normally it shows the transaction then.

Thank you Noraryu, running about 24h now but still no change.

getinfo gives:

{
"version" : 1000000,
"protocolversion" : 170002,
"walletversion" : 60000,
"balance" : 0.00000000,
"blocks" : 3470,
"timeoffset" : 0,
"connections" : 3,
"proxy" : "",
"difficulty" : 74.24685521,
"testnet" : true,
"keypoololdest" : 1473877618,
"keypoolsize" : 101,
"paytxfee" : 0.00000000,
"relayfee" : 0.00005000,
"errors" : "This is a pre-release test build - use at your own risk - do not use for mining or merchant applications"
}

But ./src/zcash-cli listtransactions or listspent gives just:

[
]

Any ideas, I should be getting a wallet address correct?

It confused me as well when I first used the Alpha.

When you have mined your first block or have received a transaction, you will see an output.

Put your public address into the ZCash faucet to receive a small transaction and then wait a while before running listtransactions again.
