Short Description
611 (SixEleven) [SIL coin] daemon (free anonymous domain name system using global domain)
Full Description



611 (SixEleven) uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of 611 (coin: SIL) is carried out collectively by the network. 611 is open-source. Its design is public, nobody owns or controls 611 and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, 611 allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment and domain name system.

This Docker image provides 611d application which can be used to run and interact with the 611 (SixEleven) network.

It loads the latest version of 611 (SixEleven) from git and creates an up-to-date docker image ready to run for you.


To build your own image of 611 (SixEleven) from the latest source code on GitHub run the following command in the contrib/docker directory:

$ docker build -t [YourAlias]/sixeleven .

Note: After the build is complete replace fflo below with [YourAlias].


To start a 611 (SixEleven) instance running the latest version:

$ docker run --name some-sixeleven fflo/sixeleven

To run a 611 (SixEleven) container in the background, pass the -d option to docker run:

$ docker run -d --name some-sixeleven fflo/sixeleven

Once you have a 611 (SixEleven) service running in the background, you can show running containers:

$ docker ps

Or view the logs of a service:

$ docker logs -f some-sixeleven

To stop and restart a running container:

$ docker stop some-sixeleven
$ docker start some-sixeleven

Data Volumes

By default, Docker will create ephemeral containers. That is, the blockchain data will not be persisted if you create a new 611 (SixEleven) container.

To create a simple busybox data volume and link it to a 611 (SixEleven) service:

$ docker create -v /sixeleven --name sixeleven-data busybox /bin/true
$ docker run --volumes-from=sixeleven-data --name=sixeleven-node -d -p 8661:8661 -p fflo/sixeleven

Configuring 611 (SixEleven)

The easiest method to configure the 611 (SixEleven) server is to pass arguments to the 611d command. For example, to run 611 through localhost tor socks proxy on port 9050:

$ docker run --name sixeleven-node fflo/sixeleven 611d -proxy=

Debug / Logfile

By default, 611 (SixEleven) service 611d will dump any log information to the Docker logs. To debug use:

Warning: In case you did not define $SIXELEVEN_RPC_USER and $SIXELEVEN_RPC_PASSWORD, on first init a random password for rpc access will be generated. The output of the 611.conf configuration file will be dumped to the Docker logs on startup.

$ docker logs -t sixeleven-node
