In order to connect to our new recently launched test network, you will need to simply do these steps:
Download latest release of official NEO client, such as NEO-CLI, NEO-GUI or CoZ NEO-PYTHON.
There are links for them all:
Extract downloaded archive to navigate to directory. In this folder you will find files named “config.json” and “protocol.json”, and some other with similar names.
Note: For neo-python, navigate from root directory of neo-python to folder neo/data as shown, you will find neccesary files here.
Copy or rename these files for backup, and download configuration files for new testnet:
Move downloaded config files to folder and rename “config.neo-testnet-faucet.json” to “config.json” and “protocol.neo-testnet-faucet.json” to “protocol.json”. For neo-python, rename “protocol.neopython-testnet-faucet.json” to “protocol.testnet.json”
Note: If you already using neo client and want to switch to new testnet, backup your blockhain database files, move them to another directory and replace configuration files.
After this, just launch your client and it will be automatically connected to MyWish Testnet. Wait some time for full synchronization and you’re good to go.
This new testnet also have additional services, that will help to work with blockchain:
