Make sure you change the grin-server.toml on the nose folder from to And start connect.

did that and still can’t connet ! , when i open http://myserverip:3413 in the broswer it asks for a user/password in a dialoge box that says " http://serverip:3413 is requesting your username and password. The site says: “GrinAPI”

abdo@medo:~/grin$ ./grin wallet -r http://serverip:3413 check

I think you will need to start your grin node first and then you can proceed with the command

Make sure that the contents of the file pointed to by api_secret_path in grin-server.toml on your server are the same as the contents of the file pointed to by api_secret_path in grin-wallet.toml on your client. Default file is ~/.grin/main/.api_secret
