Need some help with setting up a safe network community. How do I connect one node to another again?

My current questions:

  • Is the local-ip the ip other join nodes connect from?
  • Is the hard contact the ip to connect to?
  • Can multiple hard contacts be chosen?

Previous questions:

  • What’s the latest sn_node version that works? I can’t run the newest ones.

For now think your best bet is sn_node 0.32.0 and latest cli.
safe node install installs latest.
Looks like completing the merge of api and cli to safe_network is not far off, may be better to wait until then.


Is there no install older node option in the cli app?

I’ve heard that before. I’ll implement 0.32 as soon as possible.

WIth 0.32 and 0.38 it looks like run-baby-fleming only starts one node ?

willie@leonov:~/projects/learn-terraform-docker-container$ safe node bin-version
safe_network 0.32.0
willie@leonov:~/projects/learn-terraform-docker-container$ safe node run-baby-fleming

He said sn_node 0.32.0, not safe_network 0.32.0, or did he mean safe_network with it?

I have these versions

willie@leonov:~$ safe --version
sn_cli 0.38.0
willie@leonov:~$ safe node bin-version
safe_network 0.32.0

Oh right. My bad.
safe_network is the new name of sn_node while still retaining the name.

I found it a bit confusing myself but makes sense for new users

I think we are all confused here :sweat_smile:.
I mentioned 0.32.0 only because it was the last I knew to work with cli.

Were you not using baby‐fleming to test ELK @Southside

I’m trying to but progress is slow as I am in hospital wth severe gastro-enteritis and Im easy confused right now. @Sascha 's chickens have had their revenge as it seems most likely handling raw chicken was the culprit. The rest of the family who ate my lovingly-prepared and cooked chicken were fine…

The world has fallen out of my bottom.

Anyhow it seems to start fine if you specify --nodes 11 <–other values may work too - haven’t tried
Files put is failing for me but I’ll worry about that later - its writing logs so I can work with that.


I’m having issues with 0.32

bash-5.1# safe --version
sn_cli 0.38.0
bash-5.1# safe node bin-version
safe_network 0.32.0


I think I have 0.31.39 running.


Okay, 0.31.39 seems to be running dockerless, but within docker I have an issue.


I think I have 0.31.39 running.


I have 0.32.0 running.
