Unable to create a Mist connection to a private Ethereum Blockchain.

0 votes

I am entering the following commands:

geth --datadir=./mychain/ init ./genesis.json

geth --datadir=./mychain

Then, I gotta double click and open Mist when the above command fetches "IPC port opened". The first command runs succesfully and says "Succesfully wrote genesis state". The second commands seems to stop and say "IPC endpoint opened" without any errors. But when I try and open Mist, it says cannot run ethereum as there is another node running. Can anyone help me with this?

You could do the following:

1. Start another console to run Mist

2. Run Geth in the background

3. Add --rpc in Mist options if you're starting Geth

4. Use the --node-datadir option if you want to use Mist's embedded version
