In Remix, there is a Contracts tab, where I can choose the "Execution environment". When I choose "Web3 Provider", I am asked to provide the "Web3 provider endpoint". What should I write there in order to connect to the public Kovan testnet?

(I hope the question makes sense... I am entirely new to Ether)


run parity with parity --chain kovan. and then in your endpoint provide http://localhost:8545 or

8545 is the RPC port

  • I have problems installing Parity. Isn't there a way to connect to Kovan testnet without installing a software? Don't they have a "Web3 provider endpoint"? May 17 '17 at 5:28
  • As i know parity is the only client who can connect you to kovan.
