Just wondering whether it is possible to run multiple instances of NU concurrently. Not of the same wallet, but with different wallets. E.g I have been given the keys from someone else’s wallet and I like to run it at the same time as mine on the same computer.
Is it just a matter of creating another instance of Nu and changing the ports, or does it require a modified client due to the ports it is communicating on? I’ve been fiddling with it without success. Anyone who has it working and like to share?
I think you also need different data directories, including another copy of the blockchain, because each nud/nu-qt instance locks its blockchain. So try to specify a different datadir parameter, in addition to a different port, for each instance.
You need a different datadir that you provide with -datadir=/full/path and either in nu.conf in this datadir or as parameters you must also provide a different port and rpcport (unless you run the GUI without RPC server). At least one port above the rpcport must be available (for the NBT RPC port).
