Frequently Asked Questions




I want to change my RPC password. How do I do this?
First, edit the "Gulden.conf" file in the datadir of your Gulden installation. Here you can change the password. Then go to G-DASH and change the RPC password there as well (in the section "Gulden settings"). When the passwords on both places are changed, restart Gulden by either restarting your Pi, or by running "autostart.sh".
I opened TCP port 9231 as requested, but I still get the message "No inbound connections. Did you open/forwarded port 9231?".
It can take a while before the first clients connect to your node. Please check again in 30 minutes / 1 hour. If there are still no inbound connections, check if you forwarded the port correctly. If you go to the "Config check" page in the Settings menu, you can check if your port is forwarded correctly. If you don't know how to forward the port on your router, check if your router is listed on this website: https://portforward.com/
I want to submit my node statistics, but I get the message "You have no incoming connections. You have to configure your node to enable this option".
If you have opened your port on your router, please wait for about 30 minutes / 1 hour before the first connections will be made to your node. If there are still no inbound connections, check if you forwarded the port correctly. If you go to the "Config check" page in the Settings menu, you can check if your port is forwarded correctly. If you don't know how to forward the port on your router, check if your router is listed on this website: https://portforward.com/
I want to change the maximum number of connections, how can I do this?
You can change this number in the "Gulden.conf" file in the datadir of you Gulden installation.
Why can't I change the Gulden.conf file from the dashboard?
For security reasons, G-DASH will only read from the Gulden.conf file. If your credentials would be compromised and others have access to your G-DASH, they will be able to change your Gulden.conf file which is a risk for yourself.
Is there a way to import my Gulden Recovery Phrase?
At this moment it is not possible to import the Recovery Phrase from G-DASH as a rescan is needed after importing the key and this is currently not supported by Gulden without starting the rescan manually on startup.
For now, if you want to import your Recovery Phrase, you can do this in the command line and start GuldenD with the -rescan flag like this:
/opt/gulden/gulden/Gulden-cli -datadir=/opt/gulden/datadir importseed "Your Recovery Phrase"
/opt/gulden/gulden/Gulden-cli -datadir=/opt/gulden/datadir stop
/opt/gulden/gulden/GuldenD -datadir=/opt/gulden/datadir -rescan &
Don't forget to change the directories if these are different in your installation!
When I open my wallet in G-DASH for the first time, it is empty!
The wallet in G-DASH is a new wallet. There are no funds there yet. You can transfer some Gulden to your wallet in G-DASH using the address shown or by scanning the QR code.
I want to see my Recovery Phrase, but I get the error the password is wrong, but I did not set a password.
If you used the auto installer, the default password for the wallet is "changeme" (without the quotes).
I want to get a notification when my computer or internet connection is down, but how can I do that?
If you want to be notified when your computer running Gulden is offline, you can use the monitoring service from uptimerobot.com. This service checks your connection every 5 minutes. Just create an account, add a new monitor (type 'Port'), enter your IP address and port (custom port) '9231'. They also have a mobile app so you can receive push messages.
I'm 100 percent sure I set up my full node correctly, but I still don't get any incoming connections. What's wrong?
First of all. Your system is not broken or anything if you have no incoming connections. But to make you a bit more discoverable, you can now use the noderequest function in the debug console (within G-DASH --> settings) that adds your node to a database. This database is then checked automatically by other G-DASH users and these instances (max 10) then make a connection with you for 24 hours, which makes you more discoverable to other nodes and seeds. When 10 nodes have connected to your node, you are removed from the database.
