While it is rare, there may come a time where you will need to get information from the node directly through commands. Usually this is to see things such as broadcasted UTXOs, and other data. Instead of having you install LNCLI on your own computer or VPS, we have built a much easier way to access your node.
On your Voltage dashboard, click Connect on the left side. Then under the Application dropbox, click lncli(replit).
On that tab, click Fork Repl in the upper right corner. Note: You may need to make a replit account. This is just a username and password.
After you click the Fork Repl button, go back to your Voltage Connect page and click the copy icon from Step 3.
Back on the replit page, paste that into the console.
After you paste it into the console, type lncli getinfo and then press enter. You should then be presented with data about your node. This means that the connection was successful. From here you can run lncli -h to see a list of commands you can use to interact with your node. Be careful though, if you are not entirely sure what a command does, it is best to do research first.
More information on what lncli commands you can use can also be found here.
When you are done, it is a good idea to delete your connection to your node for security purposes. To do so, click your account in the upper left corner, then My Repls, then Unnamed, and then the 3 dots to delete.
Hope this helps get you started with using LNCLI. And as always if you have questions, please ask us on our discord at https://voltage.cloud/discord or email us at [email protected]
