LiteCoin testnet configuration


#1

Hi all. I am trying to configure Litecoin Testnet. So I have a downloaded binary file from official site (litecoin.org), have unpacked (I am using ubuntu 16.04), have created litecoin.conf file look like this
server=1
rpcuser=yuri
rpcpassword=whyDidTheBulletProofElephantCrossTheRoad
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcport=19332
testnet=1

Than have run the demo -> litecoind -daemon -testnet

Ok. Its worked. I am getting the adress for my account, but when I am tring to send a test coins from (faucet) , my litecoind does not receive. Please Help…!!!

Check the testnet chain for confirmation it was actually sent: https://chain.so/testnet/ltc


#3

Also check, did it actually start in testnet mode?

Could you provide a generated address example? If it starts with M, L or 3 then it is not testnet.

@mautematico
mk4jVGgcEQDaiPv26t39y7EhYdB8EHUkVb here is my testnet address, its ok ? or not

Ah, this is interesting.

This is your address, which is empty:
https://chain.so/address/LTCTEST/mk4jVGgcEQDaiPv26t39y7EhYdB8EHUkVb

But, that same address, if used as a Bitcoin one, has balance:
https://chain.so/address/BTCTEST/mk4jVGgcEQDaiPv26t39y7EhYdB8EHUkVb

I think you’re using a faucet for the wrong currency (bitcoin, in this case). Please confirm faucet URL.

I have sent some coins from https://testnet.manu.backend.hamburg/faucet

I cant found a site,from where I can send some litecoin test coins. can you share the link please?


#7

That is a Bitcoin faucet :slight_smile:

No, I don’t know any Litecoin faucet, did you try a search on the forum?

I just sent a few testnet coins to the address you posted, since it was still empty. If you (or someone else) needs more coins just tell me.
