Which ethereum network for generate set-address?

These instructions are unclear on which network we’re meant to be sending our transactions from:

I can’t find any posts detailing whether to use the Kovan testnet or Ethereum mainnet?


Hi Barry,
Step 7 mentions depositing Kovan ETH to the operator address, and that applies to all ethereum txs. This is testnet and currently only Kovan.

Thanks, a few more issues.

When I run bash start.sh it connects initially, then I keep getting P2P Shutdown before it lets me register:

I also just tried to send my transaction to the contract for generate approve and got this error:

Fail with error ‘Not enough tokens allowed for transfer’

I was successfully able to send my initial generate set-address amount to the contract address

If you are running “start.sh” then I take it you are following a guide on secretnodes.org

Please note at the end of the guide where it says “Note: If you do not have test ENG then you cannot proceed past this point successfully. Test ENG has not been widely distributed yet and enigma will do so at a future date. This notice will be updated once that happens.”

You’ll be ready to run nodes when the time comes though!

Thanks @moonstash, I thought all testeng had been distributed? When do we expect all ENG holders to receive testeng?


This is just the first iteration of testnet, test ENG has not been widely distributed as of yet. There is no ETA on this, expect communications directly from enigma in regards to this.

All that said, if you can launch the CLI then you are essentially ready to run a secret node.

Great thanks I was going insane trying to get this working :smiley:

I’ll keep an eye out for more news in the coming weeks.
