3. Check: ‘Nav Coin Block Explorer up to block …..’

https://navtechservers.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Block-height-explorer.png4. Compare the number on the block explorer with the number in your wallet. If they are the same, your wallet is synced.

You can find your NavCoin4 folder here:

  • Windows: ~/AppData/NavCoin4
  • OSX: ~/Library/Application Support/NavCoin4
  • Linux: ~/.NavCoin4

Cannot find NavCoin4 folder in Windows? https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo…

Cannot find NavCoin4 folder in OSX? In order to see hidden folders, such as ~/Library from Finder, simply hit shift + ⌘ (command) + G which will GO to a folder, then paste in this location: ~/Library/Application Support/NavCoin4

NavCore

  1. Download (NavCoin.org) the latest version of the Nav Coin Core Wallet. Select the correct wallet for your OS (Operating System), Windows, Linux or OSX.
  2. Run the Installer.
  3. You can use the default settings or change them to your likings.
  4. *Click* Install and wait for the Core Wallet to install.
  5. Run the Nav Coin Core.
  6. Create a new wallet
  7. Now you can either add or delete NavTech servers. NavTech servers are used to make Anonymous Transactions. You can add the low fee NTS (NavTechServers.com) server by pasting: “139.99.106.199:3000”, and *click*  “add new”.
  8. * Click* Save and continue
  9. The Core Wallet is now installed. Make sure to follow the other tutorials for encryption and backup.

 

Always encrypt your wallet to keep your Nav Coin safe. Your private keys are saved in a file called wallet.dat in the NavCoin4 folder. If you don’t encrypt your wallet, anyone with access to your PC can steal your coins. Encrypting the wallet means you encrypt the wallet.dat and keep your private keys safe! For staking and for sending Nav Coin you will need this password to unlock the wallet.

  1. Go to ‘Settings’
  2. *Click* ‘Encrypt Wallet’
  3. Enter ‘New passphrase’ (Use a strong password)
  4. and ‘Repeat new passphrase’
  5. Write the password down somewhere. Just make sure you do not forget it. Without the password, your coins are lost.
  6. *Click* ‘OK’
  7. Confirm that you want to encrypt the wallet.
  8. The wallet will now close.
  9. Start the Core wallet.

Now it is time to test the encryption.

  1. Go to ‘Settings’
  2. And *click* ‘Unlock your wallet for Staking’
  3. Enter your password and *click* ‘OK’
  4. If you get no error, the wallet is encrypted successfully and the password works.

*** Before running a repair wallet, make sure to have a backup. ***

Is your balance not correct or did a transaction stay unconfirmed? You might need to repair your wallet so your wallet will rescan the blockchain.

  1. Open Core Wallet.
  2. Go to ‘File’.
  3. *Click* Repair Wallet.
  4. The wallet will close, wait for this.
  5. Open Core Wallet.
  6. *Click* ‘OK’. The wallet will rescan the blockchain.
  7. The wallet is repaired and should display the balance correct.

 

Is there a new version of the Core Wallet available? Time to update!

  1. Download the newest version of the core wallet from NavCoin.org.
  2. Close the Core Wallet
  3. Run the Core Wallet Installer you just downloaded
  4. Open Core Wallet.
  5. You now have the most recent version of the wallet installed.

***Recommended option for Backup***

Always have multiple backups! A backup makes sure that you will not lose your coins. The wallet.dat holds your private keys (make sure to have an encrypted wallet). With a backup of the wallet.dat you can always restore your wallet.

  1. Open the Core Wallet
  2. ‘Backup Wallet…’
  3. Select a location on your device to store the file.
  4. Rename the file to ‘wallet.dat’
  5. Make multiple backups on multiple places. I recommend creating a backup on for example a USB or your phone.
  6. Ask yourself, “If my PC crashes, do I still have a backup?”, “If my house burns down, do I still have a backup?”. If you can answer those questions with yes, you should be safe.

You can also get access to your coins by extracting the Private Keys. The private keys will give you access to your funds. Extract the Master Private Key and the Address Private Keys. Do not place them in a plain text file on your PC. Anyone with access to the keys can access your funds.

  1. Open the Core Wallet
  2. Go to ‘Help’
  3. Go to ‘Debug Window’
  4. Go to ‘Console’
  5. Unlock your wallet by typing: “walletpassphrase
  6. Dump the Master Private Key: “dumpmasterprivkey” and press *enter*.
  7. Dump the Address Private Keys: “dumpprivkey ” and press *enter*
  8. Repeat step 7 for all the private keys you want from different wallet addresses in the wallet.
  9. Write the Private Keys somewhere safe!

To use the wallet.dat backup, you will have to import it into the wallet.

  1. Close the Core Wallet
  2. Make a copy of the wallet.dat backup
  3. Go to the NavCoin4 folder on your device (Cannot find it? Look below)
  4. Delete the wallet.dat in the NavCoin4 folder. (Make sure this is an empty wallet you do not want to use or you want to replace)
  5. Paste the copy of your backup into the NavCoin4 folder (make sure it’s called “wallet.dat”)
  6. Open the Core Wallet
  7. Make sure the wallet is synced to view the correct balance.

You can find your NavCoin4 folder here:

Windows: ~/AppData/NavCoin4

OSX: ~/Library/Application Support/NavCoin4

Linux: ~/.NavCoin4

Cannot find NavCoin4 folder in Windows? https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo…

Cannot find NavCoin4 folder in OSX? In order to see hidden folders, such as ~/Library from Finder, simply hit shift + ⌘ (command) + G which will GO to a folder, then paste in this location: ~/Library/Application Support/NavCoin4

To use the Private Keys you have to import them into the Core Wallet.

  1. Open Core Wallet.
  2. Go to ‘Help’
  3. Go to ‘Debug Window’
  4. Go to ‘Console’
  5. Type: “importprivkey “
  6. Hit *Enter* and the private key will be imported. It can take a few moments for the wallet to rescan the blockchain.

NavPi

The default NavPi Login Credentials for the Unix GUI (Connected with a screen to the NavPi) are:

Username: Pi

Password: navpi101

The default NavPi Login Credentials for the WebUI(Connected to NavPi through browser) are:

password: nav

 You can either use an ethernet cable to connect to your home network or you can use WiFi. If you do not want to make use of WiFi, you can skip this step.

  1. Boot to the Raspberry Pi
  2. Wait for the GUI (Graphical User Interface) to load
  3. Right click on the network icon in the top right task bar
  4. Select your WiFi network and enter the password to connect

For the setup of the NavPi and later on connecting to the NavPi you need to know the local IP-address of your NavPi.

1. Open the terminal

2. Type: “ifconfig” and press *enter*

3. Look for inet addr: xxx.xxx.x.x

4. The IP-address shown is the local IP-address of your NavPi. Write it down somewhere or remember it, you will need it later.

A reset of your router, disconnecting the NavPi to your network or any other reason could change the local IP-address of your NavPi. When that happens you will have to again determine the IP of your NavPi to connect to it.

To prevent this you can set a static IP for your NavPi.

  1. Open terminal (Through GUI or SSH)
  2. Type: “sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf” and press *enter*

3. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the file and add one, or both of the following snippets. Depending on whether you want to set a static IP address for a wired connection or a wireless connection eth0 = wired, wlan0 = wireless.

4. You’ll need to edit the numbers in the snippet so they match your network configuration.

interface eth0

static ip_address=192.168.0.10/24
static routers=192.168.0.1
static domain_name_servers=192.168.0.1

——-

interface wlan0

static ip_address=192.168.0.200/24
static routers=192.168.0.1
static domain_name_servers=192.168.0.1

5. interface = This defines which network interface you are setting the configuration for.
static ip_address = This is the IP address that you want to set your device to. (Make sure you leave the /24 at the end)
static routers = This is the IP address of your gateway (probably the IP address or your router)
static domain_name_servers = This is the IP address of your DNS (probably the IP address of your router). You can add multiple IP addresses here separated with a single space.

6. To exit the editor, press ctrl+x. To save your changes press the letter “Y” then hit enter.

7. Now all you need to do is reboot, and everything should be set! Type: “reboot” and press *enter*

8. You can double check by typing: “ifconfig” and press * enter*. And checking the interfaces IP address

 The NavPi is already locked down to ip address ranges:

192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x and 10.10.x.x

This should prevent anyone accessing the Web UI from outside of your local network. If your local network is on a different IP range to these defaults or you want to lock web access down to a particular IP address, then do the following:

  1. Boot to the Raspberry Pi
  2. Open Terminal
  3. In terminal type “sudo leafpad /etc/apache2/sites-available/navpi.conf” and press *enter*
  4. Find the section.
  5. Add, Remove or Modify the lines Require ip XXX.XXX to be the IP address or range you want to allow
  6. Make the same changes to the Require ip lines in the section
  7. Save and close the file
  8. In terminal type “sudo service apache2 reload” and press *enter*

  1. Boot to the Raspberry Pi GUI Operating System.
  2. Open Terminal.
  3. In terminal type “passwd” and press *enter*.
  4. Enter “navpi101” as the current password.
  5. Enter your new password.
  6. Confirm your new password.
  7. Write down your new password.

The NavPi ships with a default ssl cetificate installed, but you will want to generate a new one when you set it up.

  1. Open terminal and paste in the following command: “sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 3650 -newkey rsa:2048 -out
    /etc/apache2/ssl/navpi-ssl.crt -keyout /etc/apache2/ssl/navpi-ssl.key
    ” and press *enter*
  2. When you’re prompted, fill out the details with your own eg.

Country Name: NZ

State or Province Name: Auckland

Locality Name: Auckland

Organization Name: Nav Coin

Organizational Unit Name: Nav Pi

Common Name: my.navpi.org

Email Address: admin@navcoin.org

3. Then we need to flush and reload apache, type: “sudo systemctl daemon-reload” and press *enter*

4. Type: “sudo service apache2 reload” and press *enter*

Whenever you browse to your NavPi’s ip address, it will force HTTPS using this new certificate.

Since it’s a self signed certificate, your browser will still complain that it is insecure, but all communication to the NavPi through your browser will be encrypted so no one can intercept your passwords.

WebUI(Web User-Interface).

Now you will need the local IP-address of your NavPi. This step can be done on any device connected to your home network with a browser.

  1. Open the browser on your device
  2. Enter the IP-address of the NavPi into your browser and hit *enter*
  3. You might get a warning about an unsafe certificate, ignore this

4. Enter the password for the WebUI (default: nav)

5. You are now logged into to the WebUI of the NavPi

  1. Open the WebUI
  2. Go to ‘control’

3. Enter the new password

4. Confirm the new password

5. Now you will have to login to the WebUI with your new password.

* The WebUI password is not your wallet password. This is no encryption of the wallet, just preventing unwanted logins through the WebUI. *

Encryption cannot be undone. Make sure your wallet is empty so you cannot lose access to your funds. We will encrypt the wallet and test the encryption before putting any Nav Coin in the wallet.

  1. Open WebUI
  2. Go to ‘Control’
  3. Scroll down to ‘Security’
  4. Type the password you want to use for encrypting the wallet behind: ‘Encrypt wallet’ and press *enter*.
  5. Make sure to either remember or write down the password in a safe place. Without the password your Nav Coin are lost.

Test encryption:

  1. * Click* the NAV logo in the top left corner to go to the ‘Home’ tab.
  2. *Click* ‘Your Wallet Is Locked Click To Change’

3. Type the password behind ‘Unlock Wallet To Send’ and press *enter*.

4. Your wallet should now display that it is unlocked for sending.

5. Never leave your wallet open for sending. Go to the ‘home’ tab

6. *Click* ‘Your Wallet Is Unlocked For Sending Click To Change’.

7. *Click* ‘Lock your wallet’.

Before you put any Nav Coin in your NavPi wallet, make a backup.

Always have multiple backups! A backup makes sure that you will not lose your coins. The wallet.dat holds your private keys (make sure to have an encrypted wallet). With a backup of the wallet.dat you can always restore your wallet.

  1. Open the WebUI
  2. Go to ‘control’
  3. Scroll down to ‘security’
  4. *Click* ‘Backup Wallet’. This will download the wallet.dat file to your device.
  5. Save the wallet backup and rename it to ‘wallet.dat’
  6. Ask yourself, “If my device crashes, do I still have a backup?”, “If my house burns down, do I still have a backup?”. If you can answer those questions with yes, you should be safe.

Put the backup of your wallet.dat on a USB-stick.

  1. Boot to the Raspberry Pi.
  2. Open Terminal.
  3. Drag the wallet.dat (make SURE the wallet file is called “wallet.dat”) file from your USB memory stick to the desktop of your navpi.
  4. Type the command: “sudo mv /home/pi/Desktop/wallet.dat /home/stakebox/.navcoin4/wallet.dat” and press *enter*.
  5. Type in your sudo password (default: “navpi101“) and press *enter*.
  6. Change ownership of the wallet.dat file so the user running the navcoin daemon can access it. Type the command: “sudo chown www-data:www-data /home/stakebox/.navcoin4/wallet.dat” and press *enter*.
  7. Reboot the navpi by typing “sudo reboot now” and pressing *enter*.
  8. Open the WebUI
  9. Your wallet should now display the correct balance (make sure your wallet is fully synced).

Is your balance not correct or did a transaction stay unconfirmed? You might need to repair your wallet so your wallet will rescan the blockchain.

  1. Open the Terminal or connect through SSH.
  2. Type the following into the console to stop the Nav Coin daemon (the Core Client without the graphical user interface running on the Pi): “sudo /home/stakebox/navcoin-4.1.1/bin/navcoin-cli -datadir=/home/stakebox/.navcoin4 stop ” and press *enter*.
  3. If step 2 did NOT work try: “sudo killall navcoind”
  4. Wait a minute for the daemon to shut down.
  5. Type the following to start the daemon again with the parameter to clear all transactions (confirmed and unconfirmed) and scan the blockchain for all confirmed transactions again: “sudo -u www-data /home/stakebox/navcoin-4.1.1/bin/navcoind  -datadir=/home/stakebox/.navcoin4 -zapwallettxes
    ” and press *enter*.
  6. Be patient and wait some time. After that you can connect to the WebUI again and the correct balance should be displayed

1) Stop Wallet. (most likely it is not running, so ignore “error: couldn’t connect to server”) 

/home/stakebox/navcoin-4.1.1/bin/navcoin-cli -datadir=/home/stakebox/.navcoin4 stop

2) Backup your wallet temporarily. (assumes you already have multiple copies stored safely) 

cp /home/stakebox/.navcoin4/wallet.dat /home/stakebox/wallet.bkup.dat

3) Delete old blockchain and download latest bootstrap file. 

cd /home/stakebox/.navcoin4 

sudo rm -rf blocks/ chainstate/

sudo wget -N https://build.nav.community/bootstrap/bootstrap-navcoin-4.1.0.tar

4) Extract the bootstrap. 

sudo tar -xvf bootstrap-navcoin-4.1.0.tar 

rm bootstrap-navcoin.tar
chown -R www-data:www-data chainstate blocks

5) Start up the Nav Coin daemon. 

sudo -u www-data /home/stakebox/navcoin-4.1.1/bin/navcoind -datadir=/home/stakebox/.navcoin4 -zapwallettxes

6)Verify the daemon is running. 

ps -ef | grep nav

7) All done. The UI should be accessible with 5-20 minutes, depending how old the bootstrap is.

Starting with NavPi version 1.0.1 the SSH service is deactivated for security reasons. To be able to access the console/terminal on the stakebox remotely, the SSH service needs to be enabled. Start the stakebox with a screen, keyboard and mouse connected and open the terminal.

  1. Open terminal on the NavPi.
  2. Type into the terminal (it’s going to ask for the Unix password, default navpi101): “sudo systemctl enable ssh.service” and press *enter*.
  3. To start the service, type the following: “sudo systemctl start ssh” and press *enter*.
  4. Finally we need to open the SSH standard port in the stakebox firewall. To do that, type: “sudo ufw allow 22” and press *enter*.

If everything works as intended you should be able to access the console of the stakebox via PuTTY (Windows) or via the ssh command (Linux, Mac).

1) Stop Wallet. (most likely is not running, so ignore “error: couldn’t connect to server”) /home/stakebox/navcoin-4.1.1/bin/navcoin-cli -datadir=/home/stakebox/.navcoin4 stop

2) Backup your wallet temporarily. (assumes you already have multiple copies stored safely) cp /home/stakebox/.navcoin4/wallet.dat /home/stakebox/wallet.bkup.dat

3) Delete old blockchain and download latest bootstrap file. cd /home/stakebox/.navcoin4 sudo rm -rf blocks/ chainstate/ sudo wget -N https://build.nav.community/bootstrap/bootstrap-navcoin-4.1.0.tar

4) Extract the bootstrap. sudo tar -xvf bootstrap-navcoin-4.1.0.tar rm bootstrap-navcoin.tar
chown -R www-data:www-data chainstate blocks

5) Start up the Nav Coin daemon. sudo -u www-data /home/stakebox/navcoin-4.1.1/bin/navcoind -datadir=/home/stakebox/.navcoin4 -zapwallettxes

6)Verify the daemon is running. ps -ef | grep nav

7) All done. The UI should be accessible with 5-20 minutes, depending how old the bootstrap is.

Your NavPi might display that the memory ran out or is limited. It might display that only 8Gb of total memory is available while you have a 16Gb or more SD-card in it. To fix this, you can expand the memory in a few easy steps.

  1. Connect to the command line through SSH or with a keyboard and screen.
  2. Type: sudo raspi-config and press enter, a menu will be displayed
  3. Go to 7 Advanced Options and press enter
  4. Go to A1 Expand Filesystem and press enter
  5. A notification will be displayed saying that the root partition has been resized.
  6. Reboot your NavPi (sudo reboot)
  1. Connect to the command line through SSH or with a keyboard and screen.
  2. Type: sudo leafpad /home/stakebox/.navcoin4/navcoin.conf and press enter
  3. Add the following lines to the bottom of the document:
    dbcache=100
    maxorphantx=10
    maxmempool=50
    maxconnections=40
    maxuploadtarget=500
  4. Save the file and close it
  5. To check the file, type: cat /home/stakebox/.navcoin4/navcoin.conf

NavPi (DIY)
