Node Pilot is designed to be as portable as possible. This is important because hardware requirements may change frequently as chains update their node clients.
All settings and configurations are transferred over when following this guide.
NOTE: For these instructions, (A) represents the old instance, and (B) represents the new instance.
PORT FORWARDING: If you are running either instance of Node Pilot behind a home router or firewall, you will need to set up port forwarding for port 22. Transferring a Node Pilot config will require port 22 accessible by both (A) and (B).
CUSTOM CHAIN DIRECTORIES: If you opted to use custom "Chains Directory" when creating a node, then when migrating you will need to either:
1. Have the same paths availble in the new instance
2. Change the Chain Data location for the effected nodes in /.node-pilot/config/chains.json
1. Create new machine with the same username. Using a different username with break the migration.
