In the 1st terminal window, start
keosd, the wallet management application:
$ keosd --http-server-address 127.0.0.1:8899
keosd will display some information, starting with:
2493323ms thread-0 wallet_plugin.cpp:39 plugin_initialize ] initializing wallet plugin 2493323ms thread-0 http_plugin.cpp:141 plugin_initialize ] host: 127.0.0.1 port: 8899 2493323ms thread-0 http_plugin.cpp:144 plugin_initialize ] configured http to listen on 127.0.0.1:8899 2493323ms thread-0 http_plugin.cpp:213 plugin_startup ] start listening for http requests 2493324ms thread-0 wallet_api_plugin.cpp:70 plugin_startup ] starting wallet_api_plugin
Look for a line saying the wallet is listening on 127.0.0.1:8899. This will indicate that
keosdstarted correctly and is listening on the correct port. If you see anything else, or you see some error report prior to “starting wallet_api_plugin”, then you need to diagnose the issue and restart.
keosd is running correctly, leave that window open with the wallet app running and move to the 2nd terminal window.
