Helium Masternode VPS Installation
Greetings internet people, and thanks for tuning in. I am Alaska Crypto Guy, and in this video
I will show you how to rapidly install multiple Helium masternodes on the same VPS. Before you begin, complete these tasks. This guide is designed with security and functionality
in mind. Log into your Windows computer and start the
Helium wallet. The first time you start the Helium wallet
it will take awhile to start. When it starts, it will begin to sync the
blockchain. You can begin setting up the masternodes as
soon as you see that the blockchain is syncing, or you can wait until it is all synced up;
it doesn’t really matter. Open the masternode configuration file for
editing. Open the Debug Console. Obtain masternode account addresses. Copy and paste the addresses into the masternode
configuration file. Create your MN alias addresses. Next, generate some masternode private keys. Continue to shape your masternode configuration
file by creating a line for each masternode. Log into your exchange and send your masternode
collateral transactions. Log into your Vultr dashboard and secure your account. Next, download management tools so you can
remote into your virtual servers. Open PuttyGen to generate an RSA key pair
which you will use to secure your VPS. Now add the SSH Public Key to your Vultr dashboard. Then you’ll add a Startup Script to your
Vultr Dashboard to partially automate deployment of your VPS. Deploy your new VPS with these or your own
settings. Configure Putty to connect to your server
using your IP address and RSA Private Key Use Putty to connect to the server. Use the following steps to secure and harden
your VPS. Update the server software. A security best practice is to disallow root
login over SSH. Before we can do so it is important to enable
a non-root user to issue root commands when needed. Configure the non-root user and add it to
sudoers group. Adjust timeout for “sudo” password prompts. Secure SSH access and require RSA key-pair
authentication. Reconnect to SSH to confirm all settings are
correct. Try to login as root to confirm that you successfully
disabled root login. Configure the firewall. Secure your shared memory. Prevent IP spoofing. Harden the networking layer. Enable DDOS protection. Configure your server to automatically install
security updates. Restart the server. Now we will use the masternode VPS script
to install our masternodes on the server. Clone the VPS script. Compile the wallet. Get your masternode outputs. With the wallet installation complete, gather the last
information you need to complete your masternode.conf file. Make sure that your masternodes sync correctly. When they have synced, start your masternode
and confirm that it’s activated in the VPS. You can also monitor all your masternodes
from the same place if you want to. Please subscribe if you found this useful;
