externalip and "getinfo" nodeaddress

+2 votes

When setting externalip on multichain startup I would expect to also see this ip address in the response of "getinfo" -> nodeaddress field.

But there is another address (some local non reachable address) provided.

Wouldn't it make more sense to also forward the externalip here?

Thanks for this suggestion. We have discussed this internally and have agreed that this field will be changed to show the (first) -externalip address provided in future versions.

In the meantime, you may want to use the getnetworkinfo command for a comprehensive list of local IP addresses on which the node is listening.
