Instructions for running a node.
The USOS Operating System is made of raspbian running the us-cryptoplatform package.
You don't have to ask for permission to join.
Just follow these simple instructions and run a node earning cryptocurrency every minute,
with negligible cost in hardware, energy or bandwidth.
Both Raspbian and us-cryptoplatform are Free open source software.
An usual configuration is when you have:
* Internet Router with a *public* IP4 address (either static or dynamic).
* Raspberry PI 3B+ with at least 16GB of SDCard capacity.
* An Android mobile or tablet.
* A laptop with SDCard reader at hand for the initial setup.
Step 1: Set Up
In your laptop:
download and install the Tor browser from http://torproject.org
Use Tor to access this URL: http://j4s7lnwr7uzorjfk.onion/
Step 2: Have USOS Operating System Downloaded
USOS is an operating System for Raspberry Pi derived from raspbian, which is derived from debian.
USOS adds up the Crypto-platform protocol.
Download the Operating System image for raspberry pi:
It will take some time as it is pretty big file (~2GB)
Remember the directory where you saved it.
Step 3: Record the SD Card
Use a program like Etcher
to Record USOS into the micro SDCard
Step 4: Assemble Pi and Connect to Router
Insert the SDCard with USOS Operating System into the raspberry PI.
Connect the raspberry pi to your home router using a (short) ethernet cable.
Power Up the raspberry pi.
Check your Router
UPNP shall be enabled. The node needs to program port forwarding for the following ports:
Step 5: Find Out the Local IP Address of Your Node
From your laptop of home computer:
check your local ip (in this example we assess we're in 192.168.0.*)
$> hostname -I
Find other computers in your LAN
<pre><pre><pre>$> nmap -sP 192.168.0.*gt; nmap -sP 192.168.0.*
gt; nmap -sP 192.168.0.*
gt; nmap -sP 192.168.0.*Nmap scan report for 192.168.0.5<br>Host is up (0.0018s latency). MAC Address: B8:27:EB:EC:D5:A6 (Raspberry Pi Foundation)
In this example the IP address of the node would be
