How to Connect to remote testnet using geth?


#1

Please, explain how to connet to remote testnet rpc endpoint: http://mordenapi.ethertrack.io:8545, using geth?
And also how I can create new account in testnet only by using geth or there is exist some site, where I can do this?

If you use Geth you don’t need to connect it to any RPC, it’s a full node and it will provide RPC for you.

You don’t need any site to create account as well, just execute:

$ geth --chain morden account new

Thank you for reply. I want to connect to testnet like this: geth attach rpc:http://mordenapi.ethertrack.io:8545
without local node, so is it possible, by using geth?


#4

geth attach gives you full control of the remote instance, I don’t think anyone will give you such access to their machine.
