Check if the RPC connection is open to enable getting the transactions later!
In the config file for the network, rpc active should be set to true:

<rpc active="true" ip="" port="8545">


nano mainnet/config/config.xml


nano amity/config/config.xml


nano Custom/config/config.xml

Internal Mining

When you are running a node, you can turn on the internal miner to mine PoW network. If you want to participate in the PoW network, make sure you enable mining in the config file.

Find <mining> and make sure it is set to true. Change the <miner-address> to an account that you want to use as the coinbase address that will collect the mining rewards!

If you want to disable the internal miner, simply set <mining> to false.
