Testnet on a home relaynode?

Hi there,
My stake pool is working fine on VPS. Now I would setup a home relay-node for testing the new MA environnement of Mary on TESTNET. I have already installed a no-ip DDNS service on my box, so as to have a fixed public address.
To setup my test node, I follow up the excellent tutorial of Alexd1985, installing a relay node on MAINNET:

However I failed to connect the node to the TESTNET. I guess it’s a configuration problem but which one ? Can someone help me ? Thanks in advance.

Did u tried to edit the mainet files with testnet files?

  • go to files folder
  • download the files for testnet

wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-config.json
wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-byron-genesis.json
wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-shelley-genesis.json
wget https://hydra.iohk.io/job/Cardano/cardano-node/cardano-deployment/latest-finished/download/1/testnet-topology.json

  • mv testnet-config.json config.json

  • mv testnet-topology.json topology.json

  • start the node
    go to scrips folder and run ./cnode.sh

In files folder u should have

Thanks a lot. Much appreciated…
