Connect to a blockchain using a specific wallet address from different PC's?

+1 vote
Hi there,

I have created a blockchain and connected to it with my laptop, this gave me a wallet address for my laptop.

Is it possible to 'login' or connect to the blockchain from another PC, perhaps by editing the config files, using the laptop wallet address (for example in case the laptop user now buys a new laptop but still wants access to the blockchain with his wallet ID)?

If so, how?


Thanks so much for the help!

Generally the solution for this is not to share keys, but to grant connect permissions to another address. So you can use exactly the same process for the second laptop, as you used for the first.

If you really want to share keys, before the node is up and running, you can't do so using the usual dumpprivkey and importprivkey APIs. Instead you can copy across the wallet.dat file from one node to the other (which neither MultiChain copy is running).
