Big thank you to all who post here!
after 4 very, very long days I have my pool up and running and I can see it in daedalus.
The pain i went through to get this far is nutso lol
My relay node is syncing fine
My producer node is syncing fine
My ufw settings on relay and producer node are locked down per instructions I found
I removed cold keys from producer
I see my ticker in daedalus and have 2 delegators
so how can i know for sure it will actually work when we go live?
thanks again for all the help!
