Hello all;

Was able to setup bitcoind in a local test mode (regtest) to explore the bitcoin json-rpc protocol. Starting bitcoind also creates/manages the wallet.dat. Is it possible to setup/create/manage the wallet.dat on another node (remote) and setup bitcoind as just a json-rpc proxy to send/receive bitcoin requests ?

Thanks in advance

Yes you can use the same wallet.dat on more than 1 machine at the same time
I have tested this

it can even be configured as proxy I am thinking the wallet.dat does not affect network or peer configuration

Thanks for the response ... just want to clarify - dont want to share the wallet.dat ... want bitcond just to be a rpc server while have the wallet on another node

Ah, see the -disablewallet option for bitcoind ... that will disable the wallet and allow bitcoind to be a proxy for all rpc requests as desired ... the only question then have is how do we run a client that has just the wallet management capability and proxies requests via bitcoind
