Enable Trusted Node in your wallet

Before enabling Trusted Node in the wallet make sure you understand how the Trusted Node feature works. 


Step 1 - Open transaction settings

Tap the three vertical dots on the top right of the toolbar and then tap SettingsThis will launch the main settings screen. Tap on Transactions in the list.

Step 2 - Add Trusted Node information

Tap on Trusted node in the settings list. This will open a dialogue box asking you to input your node information. If you haven't yet configured your node for Samourai Wallet then do that first.

IP address: the_ip_address_of_your_node

Port: 8332

RPC User Name: the_username_from_bitcoinconf

RPC User Password: the_password_from_bitcoinconf

Then tap OK. 

Step 3 - Verify connection

Samourai wallet will attempt to connect to your node using the connection information provided. This may take a few minutes, please for a message to appear.

  • If the connection is successful you will see a message appear stating: "Trusted Node Running..." followed by the user-agent of your node. 
  • If the connection is unsuccessful you will see a message appear stating that trusted node could not connect. 

Step 4 - Enable

Once the connection has been verified simply tap on Use trusted node to finish the Trusted Node setup. 

While this is enabled, all transactions sent from your Samourai Wallet will be broadcast to the bitcoin network using your own personal node.

    Got a workaround...

    Making a new Android User, setting up my OpenVPN connection to my router as always on, and running the wallet on that user account. Will be even more stealthy than Samourai's stealth feature.

    Wonder if Yalp will be able to update upon new releases, though, as I won't be using it that frequently and have not much need to switch users.

    Will have to share contacts, texts, and calls between users to allow for the wallet's remote access to work properly, but it's a definite work around.

    I run NetGuard as an always on VPN on my phone in conjunction with Orbot. Since Android does not allow 2 VPNs to operate at the same time, is there any way to connect my Samourai wallet to my node by using the DDNS that I've setup on my router and configured it for https?
