I downloaded the new nxt platform and want to try out the testnet system for new features. How do you get the testnet running on your local system?

1 Answer 1


Download the latest NXT, and goto your conf folder and there is a nxt configuration file there. Open it with a text editor and find the line that mentions "testnet = false" - Change that false to true and then launch the NXT application. (run.bat on windows) Once its booted up you'll see in "NXT server started" message. Then you goto:


NXT testnet is port: 6876
