With the two binaries in your jormungandr-node subfolder ready to go, the next thing you need is a config file. Create it with:
cat > ~/jormungandr-node/node-config.yaml <<- EOF storage: "/home/[EDIT: your username on this device]/jormungandr-node/storage" rest: listen: "0.0.0.0:8080" p2p: trusted_peers: - "/ip4/[EDIT: the testnet genesis peer IP]/tcp/3000" public_address: "/ip4/[EDIT: your own public IP address]/tcp/3000" topics_of_interest: messages: low blocks: normal EOF
The next thing is to edit the file and set the values specific to your own node.
Save your edits and close the nano editor.
At this point you are ready to start the jormungandr node as a passive listening node. It will not be acting as a stake pool yet but just following the chain for now. Note that the public testnet’s genesis-block-hash has to be released first before you can insert it into the following command
jormungandr --config node-config.yaml --genesis-block-hash 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxx'
