    Look good if you can upgrade upload speed :slight_smile:

    A few notes about your hardware. Your CPU is fine. RTX 30xx are not supported.
    See pages 3-4 of Beta Node Handbook Specifically page 4 about Turing.

    Has my vote.

    I say yes.

    Hallo Kindly give thanks for votes received ,i upgraded the setup to ryzen7 5800/ and a founders edition Geforce RTX 3070 of the late generation ,upgraded the internet speed to G/ps and managed to build the Node and gateway setup on the same machine . both the node and gateway service seem to be active, in running the "ps -A I grep xxnetwork i get an output “defunct” next to the xxnetwork-node ,also i noticed that node is running active without /bin path?
    On the dashboard i can not find any activity related to my application ID ,i applied back in december i am not in the list perhaps i was to late to join the group?

    Glad to announce the Node is Up and Running!
