This functionality allows you to connect your full node to the BitBoxApp.

Connecting to your full node without Tor

On your regular computer, configure the BitBoxApp to use your RaspiBolt:

  • In the sidebar, select Settings > Connect your own full node
  • In the field “Enter the endpoint” enter the hostname or ip address and the port, e.g. raspibolt.local:50002
  • Click on “Download remote certificate”
  • Click “Check”, you should be prompted with the message “Successfully establised a connection”
  • Click “Add” to add your server to the list on the top
  • Remove the Shift servers to only connect to your own server

Connecting to your full node via Tor

If you have Tor installed on your computer, you can access your RaspiBolt remotely over Tor.

  • In the sidebar, select Settings > Enable tor proxy
  • Enable it and confirm the proxy address (usually the default 127.0.0.1:9050)
  • When adding your RaspiBolt full node as described above, use your Tor address (e.g. gwdllz5g7vky2q4gr45zGuvopjzf33czreca3a3exosftx72ekppkuqd.onion:50002)
