Since Dash Platform is fully accessible via DAPI, running a full node is unnecessary and generally provides no particular benefit. Regardless, the steps below provide the necessary information for advanced users to connect.
The config file shown below may be used to connect a Dash Core node to Testnet. Testnet currently operates using Dash Core v0.17.0.3.
testnet=1 # Hard-coded first node addnode=seed-1.testnet.networks.dash.org:19999
To start Dash Core and connect to Testnet, simply run dashd or dash-qt with the
conf parameter set to the configuration file created above:
<path to binary> -conf=<path to configuration file>
