starting the first node does not exit

+1 vote

i am fairly new to multichain and was following the tutorial

so far i have created a new chain (chain1)with default parameters

 now the command line does not exit when starting the node

i can try to connect with a second node but since the first one is stuck i wont be able to grant permission.


i tried some more and enabled that all can  connect, so the second node can be connected but it gets stuck too upon starting!

if i force exit and try to use some multichain-cli commands i always get the error that it cant connect to the server.


what could be the cause of this?
 is it a problem with the ports?

I assume you're running in Windows, in which case the -daemon option to run MultiChain in the background is not yet functional. Instead, you can open a second command-line window to send API commands. You should also please note the other comments at the top of the README.txt file in the Windows download.
