Hello, I have just set up a new Trinity wallet with my Ledger, how do I add an old seed #. I have been trying to log into lite wallet 2.5.7 but no luck, "connection refused", although I have two old seeds one knowingly is empty and the other has iota in it, I did log into the empty one a couple of times, but when I tried the one with iota in it got the 'connection refused. And also where do I find working nodes addresses to enter into lite wallet?

HELP

Hi @Yeahmate,
welcome to Hello IOTA!

The Lightwallet is very outdated and it’s really not advisable to use it any longer. However, if you still wish to continue to use it, this node still works for me: https://nodes.thetangle.org:443

Instead of using the Lightwallet you can simply add your old seeds in Trinity.
Just open Trinity without your Ledger and click „Add new account“. Trinity now asks „Do you need to create a new seed?“.
Do NOT connect your Ledger, because your old seeds have nothing to do with your Ledger. Just click „No, I have one“.
Now, add your old seed and make absolutely sure it’s correct.
In case your balance appears to be wrong after Trinity has loaded your old seed, go to „Account“ -> „Account management“ -> „Tools“ and perform a Snapshot transition.

Once your correct balance shows you can send your funds from the old seed-Account within Trinity to your new Ledger account.


I wouldn't be able to help anyone without thetangle.org-explorer. If you feel like you want to support its developer Mathieu Viossat in maintaining his service, please consider a donation to the address shown here: https://thetangle.org/about. Thank you!
