Didn't get wallet address

+2 votes

I downloaded and installed MultiChain on 2 servers. But when trying to connect to blockchain from second server, I was expecting a wallet address as per

You should be told that the blockchain was successfully initialized, but you do not have permission to connect. You should also be shown a message containing an address in this node’s wallet.

But, I got the following message,

MultiChain Core Daemon build 1.0 alpha 23 protocol 10005 

Retrieving blockchain parameters from the seed node ..

New users can connect to this node using 
multichaind chain1@

Now , why I didn't get any wallet address? How will I be able to send transactions to that node?

Hi  prashant.singh !

Use the command :

multichain-cli chain1 getaddresses.

Thats may work.

Is it possible you set your blockchain to anyone-can-connect=true? In that case you won't be shown the address at this stage. But as per the comment you can still retrieve it using getaddresses.

Same issue, with anyone-can-connect=false. Also my input prompt does not pop up after running the "multichaind testchain -daemon" in windows 10 until I press ctrl+C. Is it supposed to be so ? by input prompt I mean something like this
On Windows, MultiChain does not run as a daemon in the background. Please see the Windows README.txt for more information.
