Trying to get my wallets setup offline for storage and am having issues.

Using armory for BTC and this is really simple to do.

The issue is LTC. The only client I can find is litecoin qt

Is there a way to make a papercopy of the litecoin qt .dat?

How do you import LTC keys into the litecoin qt client?

Thank you

You can  use the electrum client for litecoin.

For papercopy and importing LTC keys read electrum wiki and specifically:

If I'm understanding what you're trying to do, I would go here: http://liteaddress.org/ and save the page (In chrome, right click and click save as, choose webpage, complete) and then generate a new address and private key. You can then import that private key into the litecoin client using the debug console.

Open the Litecoin client, click on help, click on debug window, click on console and then use these commands:

The commands to import and export keys:

Code:
importprivkey <private key> [account name]

The account name doesn't have to be anything that exists, it will just be the label for that address.

Code:
dumpprivkey <account address>

If you have an encrypted wallet you will need to unlock it first with:

Code:
walletpassphrase <password> <time>

Time is in milliseconds and don't actually put the < or >, those are just there to separate so it's easier to read these instructions.

Also, for cold storage, all you need is your wallet.dat (on Windows, its in the AppData/Roaming/Litecoin directory). Take that file (I would encrypt it first with a really strong password) and put it on a computer that isn't connected to the internet, on a thumb drive, a cd, or any other place not connected to the internet that you won't lose. All you need to spend coins is in that wallet.dat file, everything else can be downloaded again.

Hope this answers your questions.

I appreciate you spending time to break it down.

Its starting to come together but I am just super paranoid about losing money Smiley

Does LTC suffer from change wallets like BTC? I will be using Armory since the change wallet issue isnt there since it keeps everything you need in the .wallet file.

Another option is to use https://github.com/weex/addrgen with the --otherversion=48 option to generate individual litecoin addresses.

This is also useful if you're trying to extract keys from a wallet.dat - http://forum.litecoin.net/index.php?topic=1305.0
