When we go into the Reward Era, I would like to run a full Cardano node 24/7 on my Synology DS415+. Currently, I’m capable of running the Cardano-SL back end with wallet on the Synology server in a Docker container but I have not succeed in connecting the Daedalus middleware and frontend GUI to the backend using the Synology box simply because there is no xwindows on the system which is needed for the wallet GUI. This does not have to be a problem if the Daedalus middleware could run on the NAS together with the backend 24/7 like a headless node but I’m not sure if this is possible.
I hope one of the developers could shed some light on this.
Currently, I’m running a headless cardano-sl node on my server. I can attach the Daedalus wallet to it and then see my ADA in the wallet and in the logs of the cardano-sl node. However, when I close Daedalus, the node does not show any reference to my ADA wallet anymore. So, when we go into the Reward Era, does this mean you have to run node and wallet 24/7 or is running the node enough once you stake or delegate your ADA in the wallet?
@bearbearbowl: I’m running a python scripts that is scrapping the log file. The script sends the results to InfluxDB and Grafana is used to make the nice graphs. Everything is running in different docker containers and currently it is a bit of a mess because some of these containers are on different subnets and therefore having difficulties reaching each other. I’m trying to simplify things at the moment and then I could make a litte HOW TO if people are interested.
@javaronin: No, unfortunately no answers yet. Actually, Chainomatic is the only one who answered on of the questions I asked. I guess, developers are not reading this forum or do not have the time to answer all our questions. I have still many! I’m really curious what my node is doing currently. In the logs, I see it is connected to a different node on port 3000. I have port 3000 closed on my router (just opened it). The logs always mention peers=0. I’m curious if I will see incoming connections now the port is open.
