    I came accross something strange (i think)
    Last Friday i created a wallet on a pc from my office. It all worked fine. I wrote my testnet adres on the faucet page and recieved 100 decred.

    Last saturday i created a wallet on a pc from my home. This also worked fine, i did test my miner on that one and recieved some coins. Balance is about 50 decred atm on my home wallet.

    Today i am back at the office again, and i figured i could send the 100 decred i recieved in my wallet from the office pc to the adres from the wallet i created on my home pc.

    The weird part is that both dcrd adresses are the same?? I did create both wallets (home and office) with the same U en P.

    The balance at home is 50 dcrd and the ballance at the office is 100. But they do have the same adress, because i saved them in a text document like described in the guide.

    Anyone know how this is possible?

    open wallet in its own window and let it sync first,
    then open another window and run
    dcrctl --testnet -u xxxxxx -P xxxxxx --wallet getbalance --notls

    OK I keep running into this same issue each time. I get to Step 6 and type "dcrwallet -u user -P pass --noclienttls --noservertls --walletpass publicpassphrase --dcrdusername=user --dcrdpassword=pass". After typing in all of the info just as I did before I get this error:

    15:25:20 2016-02-01 [ERR] DCRW: invalid passphrase for master public key

    I've deleted and tried once again MAKING ABSOLUTELY SURE that what I type is correct and still the same thing. Keep in mind that I am an absolute novice at this and I am more that likely just typing the wrong thing somewhere. I just have no clue what it is. Can anyone help???????

    Here's a copy of my cmd window from start to finish (error):

    dcrwallet -u xxxxxx -P xxxxxxx --noclienttls --noservertls --walletpass xxxxxxxxx --dcrdusername=xxxxxx --dcrdpassword=xxxxxx

    x's after walletpass = your public passphrase from the wallet

    x's after -P = is your private passphase from the wallet

    "Do you have an existing wallet seed you want to use? (n/no/y/yes) [no]: y"

    Hey try clicking no when you get to this command setting up your wallet

    To clarify, that's definitely not the same as your wallet private passphrase. That the RPC server password.

    The wallet private passphrase is used to unlock the wallet for transaction signing and is done via the "dcrctl --wallet ... walletpassphrase ..." command.

    Yeah, it will work if they're the same, but they shouldn't be.

    yes i think so when you start tesnet for mining add your wallet addy to the end of the command

    dcrd --testnet --notls -u xxxxxx -P xxxxxxx --miningaddr=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    then give your miner a go.

    Okay.. I'm okay... *deep breath*

    Yes x's after walletpass are my public passphrase and x's after -P are my private passphrase.

    The public passphrase is the passphrase I typed after this right?

    I will try that as well. If I do choose "no" here I will just leave the --walletpass publicpassphrase command out of the next command line right?

    ok.... So, where does the RPC server password come from?

    Thanks for your help guys!

    You are correct in regards to the public wallet passphrase. The RPC server password is something you invent. It is different than the private wallet passphrase you entered when creating the wallet.

    For example, a quick way to test is to simply change -P on the command line to PASS, then when using dcrctl ensure you have -P PASS for it as well. The private wallet passphrase will still be whatever you entered when you created the wallet.

    I am getting confused by the terminology here. It seems that some phrases are used interchangeably and I am not up to code on them. Let me do this, I'll write out exactly what I am doing below ( these are not my username and passwords/phrases of course) and you guys let me know if I have done anything wrong.

    Now I have used the same password formy dcrd password and my wallet private passphrase. I see that they should be different, but it should still work. Whenever I write out what is above I still get that "invalid passphrase for master public key" error. I know I am doing something wrong here, I just can't figure out what that is.
