daedalus

#1

I have build the **Cardano SL ** from the source code.Also then i have run the command nix-build -A connectScripts.mainnetWallet -o connect-to-mainnet then ./connect-to-mainnet. After doing this my node is start connecting to mainnet. But how can i verify my node is connected, and also how can i perform transaction in testnet or create new account through my java application?

You will get a huge stream of text if your node is properly connected, looking something like the below.

I don’t have an answer on the testnet. I would love to know as well.

nsticco@cardano3:~/cardano-sl$ ./connect-explorer-to-mainnet
