We’ve previously written about Geth, one of the most popular Ethereum nodes. When you install Geth with helper tools, it comes with a handy tool called Puppeth, which you can use to maintain and install various helper tools for managing and deploying your private blockchain.

Puppeth can also be installed independently if you have Go installed, with the following command: Let’s take a look at the tool. Note: this tutorial will require you to have two remote machines at your disposal.

Whether that is a virtual machine like Homestead Improved or an actual server on your network, or a combination of the two, doesn’t matter. We’ll go through the setup procedure with VMs in this tutorial.

Note: due to a bug in Puppeth, this approach might not work if your virtual machines (see below) are too small. Either make bigger VMs (more RAM) or wait for a fix if that’s not an option.

We’ll follow this process to get two virtual machines up and running. We need two machines because we’ll be running two Ethereum nodes, each on its own IP address. Read more from sitepoint.com…
