SAFE Network - Test 16

It is our pleasure to be releasing Test 16. Here are the main changes compared to Test 15:

  • Implement invitation-based account creation.
  • Add section update requests to make merges more stable.
  • Don’t approve new node if routing table is invalid.
  • Work around cases where OtherSectionMerge would not accumulate.
  • Several fixes to tunnel nodes and peer manager.
  • Replace rustc-serialize with serde.

SAFE Vault v0.14.0

You can run only 1 Vault node per LAN – running more than 1 will result in this message:

More than 1 routing node found on LAN. Currently this is not supported"


  • To pass the resource proof check, your upload bandwidth needs to be at least ~ 6 Mbps.
  • Only people who either have a TCP port forwarded and specify it in their crust config file OR people who have UPnP enabled will be able to participate as a Vault. If you forwarded a TCP port on your router (see this website for more information on how to do this), you need to specify the port in the safe_vault.crust.config file (which is located in the same directory as the safe_vault binary) in the tcp_acceptor_port field.


SAFE Launcher v0.11.0

To connect to Test 16, you need to use SAFE Launcher v0.11.0.

Each client account is limited to 500 PUTs. A PUT is a request to store a single chunk on the network (a file may contain many chunks). The maximum chunk size is 1 MB.

Please be aware that we might need to restart this test network, wiping all data that is stored on it. We will announce this in a Dev Update (when possible) prior to taking it down.


  • To create an account, you need to enter a valid invitation token. Invitation tokens can’t be reused.



SAFE Demo App v0.6.2

The latest version of SAFE Demo App (v0.6.2) should continue to work fine.

When uploading files using SAFE Demo App, the maximum file size is 25 MB per file.



SAFE Browser v0.4.3

The latest version of SAFE Browser (v0.4.3) should continue to work fine.


Other apps

Apps that were working with TEST 11 should continue to work fine with TEST 16.

How can i know if my vault is running good ? First i had the message your vault is allowed to join the network, then i had squares that said how much connections etc to the network and then i had all kind of text. Anyone know were i might find this info?

In! Looks like I’m bac038 - say hello if you see me on the network :slight_smile:


Well done @maidsafe :+1:.


you should see the routing table growing or shrinking, and the amount of stored data growing.
From my experience, a vault going bad …crashes

It should look something like this as it goes through the resource proof tests
