Start the Wallet Manager

In the 1st terminal window, start keosd, the wallet management application:

$ keosd --http-server-address

If successful, 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: port: 8899
2493323ms thread-0   http_plugin.cpp:144           plugin_initialize    ] configured http to listen on
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 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.

When keosd is running correctly, leave that window open with the wallet app running and move to the 2nd terminal window.
