Installing Pool
This page describes how to install Pool on various nodes
To use Flow, you must also have the Pool daemon installed.

Voltage

We are working on making Flow an integrated part of the Voltage platform so the channel creation is automatic. Until that's ready you'll need to run Pool locally and point it at your Voltage node. You can learn how to setup Pool manually below and use the following poold.conf file:
1
[Application Options]
2
network=mainnet
3
rpclisten=0.0.0.0:12010
4
lnd.host=node.m.voltageapp.io
5
lnd.macaroonpath=/path/to/admin.macaroon
6
tlspath=/path/to/tls.cert
Copied!

Umbrel

Raspiblitz and MyNode both support Lightning Terminal as part of their default feature set, which is the official user interface for Loop and Pool, by Lightning Labs.

Start 9 Embassy

The Start 9 team says that LiT is coming soon. Keep an eye out!

Manually

If you run a custom Lightning Network stack with LND, you can install pool manually buy cloning the Pool repository and installing in a directory of your choice. The repository can be found here.
After installation, you can use the poold command to turn the pool service on. The service will have to be on if you actively have a bid or ask order at all times or the auction server cannot match your orders.
Alternatively you can install the Lightning Terminal (LiT) application, also made by lightning labs to interact with pool through a GUI interface. The instructions for LiT can be found here.
