I have been trying for a few weeks to get a Lightning Node and Channel operational on my Umbrel Full Node.
I have used this guide by Brett Colbert, as well as a few others, and have not quite been able to get it fully working. I am going to assume I just am not up to par with the author OR that the method is deprecated as after 3 times it has resulted in the ability to send or receive LN payments even though I did follow to the T and did not receive any noted errors.
So, I would like to ask if this other method is possible.
What if instead I just setup another Umbrel Full Node and use it as my counter-party for establishing a Lightning Channel?
Heck I could even have them right next to each other IRL. I would just use the address from one and another to create say a 1,000,000 satoshi LN channel and then be good to go?
Does this work?
Is there a better guide?
Anything else to be aware of?
My main emphasis is just to get it up and running to experiment with.
Thank you for any tips or help!
