SYNOPSISAll command-line options (except for '-datadir' and '-conf') may be specified in a configuration file, and all configuration file options may also be specified on the command line. Command-line options override values set in the configuration file.
- The configuration file is a list of 'setting=value' pairs, one per line, with optional comments starting with the '#' character.
- The configuration file is not automatically created; you can create it using your favorite plain-text editor. By default, litecoind(1) will look for a file named litecoin.conf(5) in the litecoin data directory, but both the data directory and the configuration file path may be changed using the '-datadir' and '-conf' command-line arguments.
LOCATIONlitecoin.conf should be located in $HOME/.litecoin
- Enable or disable run on the test network instead of the real *litecoin* network.
- Connect via a socks4 proxy.
- Use as many *addnode=* settings as you like to connect to specific peers.
- Use as many *connect=* settings as you like to connect ONLY to specific peers.
- Use or Do not use Internet Relay Chat (irc.lfnet.org #litecoin channel) to find other peers.
- Maximum number of inbound+outbound connections.
- Tells *litecoin* to accept or not accept JSON-RPC commands.
- You must set *rpcuser* to secure the JSON-RPC api.
- You must set *rpcpassword* to secure the JSON-RPC api.
- How many seconds *litecoin* will wait for a complete RPC HTTP request, after the HTTP connection is established.
- By default, only RPC connections from localhost are allowed. Specify as many *rpcallowip=* settings as you like to allow connections from other hosts (and you may use * as a wildcard character).
- Listen for RPC connections on this TCP port.
- You can use *litecoin* or *litecoind(1)* to send commands to *litecoin*/*litecoind(1)* running on another host using this option.
- Use Secure Sockets Layer (also known as TLS or HTTPS) to communicate with *litecoin* '-server' or *litecoind(1)*. Example of OpenSSL settings used when *rpcssl*='1':
- Enable or disable attempt to generate litecoins.
- Enable or disable use SSE instructions to try to generate litecoins faster.
- Pre-generate this many public/private key pairs, so wallet backups will be valid for both prior transactions and several dozen future transactions.
- Pay an optional transaction fee every time you send litecoins. Transactions with fees are more likely than free transactions to be included in generated blocks, so may be validated sooner.
- Allow direct connections for the 'pay via IP address' feature.
USER INTERFACE OPTIONS
- Enable or disable start litecoind minimized.
- Enable or disable minimize to the system tray.
