So I’ve been working on a Cardano Testnet staking pool and want to ensure that we are able to mint blocks before our team goes to the mainnet. However, I’ve had the pool running for almost 2 months now with no blocks minted at all.
I’m running cardano-node/cli version 1.32.1
GHC version 8.10.7
Cabal version 126.96.36.199
From the gLiveView output, there are a few things that are concerning. The error (process ID list syntax error at the top) and “Syncing” field that remains at 94.4%. Since i’m newer to using this tool, I don’t know if there are particulars that don’t appear correct to the layman. Is it also okay for me not to have P2P (I have most ports blocked to enhance security but could certainly be overdoing it)?
