Unable to Connect to Custom Node
Last updated: 2018-12-15
Verify the URL you entered is correct.
Verify the port you entered is correct.
Verify that if you are connecting to an http:// node, you are running MyCrypto locally (NOT over https://).
Verify you are running with:
geth --rpc --rpccorsdomain "null" --keystore "dont_put_secret_files_here_ever"
parity --jsonrpc-cors "null" --keys-path "dont_put_secret_files_here_ever"
You can also run both clients in light client mode, which only downloads the recent state of the blockchain and saves bandwidth:
geth --rpc --rpccorsdomain "null" --keystore "dont_put_secret_files_here_ever" --syncmode "light"
parity --jsonrpc-cors "null" --keys-path "dont_put_secret_files_here_ever" --light
Verify your node is actually up and running.
Try removing the node and adding it again.
Try changing the node in the top-right corner to ETH (Etherscan.io) or ETH (Infurio.io).
Try using Google Chrome or a different browser.
Ensure that you do not have a firewall or something else that may be blocking the connection.
