Add values for your specific configuration in between the quote marks with x's marked "xxxxx"
clandestine-port - this is the port you want to keep using for MASQ to communicate in the network, so you can add a port forward and keep it the same in your router config - its best to choose one here thats 4-5 digits long. If left blank MASQ will randomly assign one.
db-password - this is a database password to encrypt sensitive information
ip - this is your public IP found on your computer network adaptor, or simply going to a site like ipchicken.com
If you do require an infura address for --block-service-url, you can use the one provided above temporarily - its one set up for team testing:https://ropsten.infura.io/v3/0ead23143b174f6983c76f69ddcf4026
Once testing scales out, it may reach its free API call limits
Saving the config.toml
After completing the parameter in the file, save it and make sure the file extension .toml
If your system asks to change file extension click Yes
Configuring using commands
MASQ Node lets you run in interactive-mode by running masq command from your binary directory - this will show a command line prefix of masq> indicating you are in interactive mode
From here you will be able to execute consecutive software commands.
Type setup to output the default settings
Here is an example on Windows cmd, in the second command window you will be using:
Node cannot run as --neighborhood-mode standard without --ip specified
Notice there are headings for NAME of parameter, VALUE and STATUS
The STATUS column is important as it will tell the user which parameters are set, blank and defaulted.
Parameters with the 'Required' status will alert you when trying to start Node when they are not configured. In the above example, the ERROR message explains you cannot run without specifying your public IP address
Initial IP - Required Config
As a minimum to run the start command to start the Node instance, you will need to specify an IP address for the node.
For local testing you can configure this to anything you wish, but to join Testnet on Ropsten and eventually mainnet, this will be your public IP address (the IP address facing the internet world on the outside of your router)
