I want to deploy smart contract on rinkeby test network. I create account in Rinkeby test network.And connect with "Ethereum geth node".I successfully funded "https://faucet.rinkeby.io/". I also check balance in requesting account address on "https://rinkeby.etherscan.io/address/ce82bd5a2a5ea3582446ae117576278fee5dee3f".

But when I check on geth console with eth.getBalance(eth.accounts[0]) so account balance is 0.Also when I check eth.accounts[4]) to eth.accounts[7] so it show value 3000000000000000000. And "eth.accounts[8]" is my original funded balance 7500000000000000000. " It is the request account address value.eth.syncing" is also False.

So My question is why eth.accounts[0] balance is 0 and other accounts value 3000000000000000000? .Why eth.syncing is False?.While I connect ethereum node to rinkeby test-network last 15 hours??

  • Check if the last block with eth.blockNumber from geth console is close to the latest block on etherscan. If they are close then your node is synchronized. If your not has not synced check if you have peers admin.peers, restart your node. – Ismael Jun 5 '18 at 13:29
  • Hi Ismael,thanks for comments. My eth.blokNumber is 0.It is not colose to latest block number.So it's mean get h is not synced.I also restart node.But my account balance is zero – Anupam Jain Jun 6 '18 at 7:08

  • Well your node has not synced and it does not have peers. Perhaps is some problem with your network like a firewall blocking connections with other nodes, I used to have problems with my router NAT not helping to find nodes. You might try adding nodes manually from ethernodes.org/network/4/nodes. – Ismael Jun 6 '18 at 12:07
  • Hi Ismael,I have deleted ethereum directory.I reconnect ethereum network.I run command to create new account in rinkeby network.I successfully create account with this address " 0x337e3e21cfdc1742d38a0ddb17981e8781e67476".So,check eth.accounts only one address.I successfully funded this address.But when I check geth console with eth.getBalance(eth.accounts[0]) so its'value is 0.While I synced my node last 30 hours.I also firewall off my system So,Why it is happen ?? Please resolve this query as well as. – Anupam Jain Jun 8 '18 at 5:30
