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="127.0.0.1" port="8545">
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.
<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.
