After Bitcoin Core synchronizes. You need to confirm it’s online!

This post is for the noobs who just like me synced their nodes very recently. Also I want to admit that I was an idiot thinking my Bitcoin Node was “online” supporting the network for a whole month, when in reality it was just sitting there.

I was trying to connect a widget to my node to read some data over my network. that’s when I realized I can’t access it.

After a little of research, I found a way to check if my node was online (which is on the Bitcoin Core website: and it kept returning errors.

After some more research I realized I need to configure my router to forward port 8333 and allow my firewall to pass through inbound connections.

tl;dr, after you sync your node, confirm it’s actually online. Peace.
