I know this is one of those situations where I did something wrong. Problem is I cannot figure out where that is. I am hoping that someone can help me with an OFFLINE status after initial setup of storj storage node.
I followed the instructions at Introduction - Node Operator (storj.io) and followed a youtube video by Storj Labs: Set up a Storj storage node on Windows #withme - complete SNO tutorial.
Requested and receive authorization token from Storj.
It ran fine under Powershell and gave me an error in command prompt. Error: CA certificate and/or key already exists, NOT overwriting.
Ran identity under Powershell which ran without error. Under command prompt I receive an error. Error: certificates peer error: authorization already claimed.
Then confirmed Identity in Powershell and Command prompt. Received a “2” and “3” on both.
I them downloaded and ran the GUI installer for windows. Moving to the entering of external address.
I entered the DDNS from NOIP I created followed by the port of 28967.
I set up the storj folder on an empty formatted 4tb drive. I allocated 3.0tb to storj.
The rest of the install completes without any apparent error.
Using MS Edge I can see that I am offline.
Even after waiting overnight I am still offline according to the top of the webpage generated. In the mid-section under Suspension and Audit it shows 100% on all satellites.
I did port forward back in the beginning and double checked it. Windows firewall shows:
I also set up my TP link router as follows:
I should have put this up earlier as this is probably where I went wrong. I went to NOIP and set up my DDNS. The setup looks like this:
When I do a check to see if the port is open I consistently receivea return that it is closed.
As stated above I am completely lost. I tried restarting PC and Router then PC, Modem and Router. I actually went through three tokens trying to get this to work. If anybody know where I screwed up then please fill me in.
BTW: it has been 16 hours since I installed the software.
Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone may provide.
