How to run X Core on your Western Digital, QNAP or Synology NAS
In this tutorial, we are going to cover a feature that many have been requesting. Here, we explain how to run X Core on a Synology, WD MyCloud or QNAP NAS. As you know, X Core is a program you can run to monetize your unused disk space. X Core pays €0.01/GB/month. Holding Internxt tokens will give you a 10% bonus on top of that. X Core for NAS works with those NAS servers that support Docker (or similar), so do check that out. To get started installing X Core on your NAS, simply follow our tutorial
How can I run X Core on Docker? Well, first of all, you’ll need to download and install Docker (or container station) on your NAS server. Once that’s done, you will need to get our Docker image (internxt/core) and set up your node (raw text, may vary depending on your NAS).
- Pull our Docker image
- Create the Docker container (note, 45555 is the port that you will want to use on X Core; you can enter whatever port you want. You need to open this port in your router. You also need to enter a local directory -instead of /home/al in our sample command, where all your X Core files will be hosted. You need to create a .xcore folder inside that directory).
3. Create the node (insert your wallet address, amount of your disk you’ll dedicate to run X Core, port -same one as before, and Public IP address).
4. Execute the node. If the command above doesn’t work for you, enter the following command instead
If you want to check your node status, you can enter
docker exec xcore xcore status
or, if you are running it from the container itself, simply
To stop your node, you can enter
xcore stop — i nodenumber
If you ever quit Docker, turn your computer off, etc and want to start your already created node, simply run commands (2) and (4).
