Congrats on your new machine!
For remote control over your machine's settings and wallet, let's set up the server and admin software.
The following is a step-by-step guide to doing so using a Linux, Mac OS, or Windows computer, intended for anyone without prior experience.
Please follow each step carefully, as omitting any may mean starting over with a new server.
Before beginning, please ensure you've reviewed some key articles on your new machine:
- Welcome to your new Cryptomat! – Start here
- Powering on and off the Douro
- Best Practices for Connectivity
- Physical setup
Then, continue with Step 2 in this section.
