Trying to vote by contributing a little bit of hardware and bandwidth to the cause. I'm fairly new to the bitcoin world overall, but trying to get comfortable to give myself a superior alternative to using the online exchanges as wallets. Here's where i'm at so far, roughly ~24 hours into. At 93{88c91daedd271a990a10650c05d769cae2765e0603edf30ca95f18704e5748e8}, seems to be dragging for the last 10{88c91daedd271a990a10650c05d769cae2765e0603edf30ca95f18704e5748e8}(ish). Have a 100/20 fiber connection, with 20/2 cable fail-over. Spun up an Ubuntu Server VM last evening, but had to pause it during the workday. I've devoured as many guides as possible on the web, yet i cannot figure out why i continue to get this error — did i ruin my bitcoin.conf:

error: couldn't connect to server: unknown (code -1) (make sure server is running and you are connecting to the correct RPC port) 

And here are my details from Bitnodes:

User Agent: /Satoshi:0.14.0/ Protocol Version: 70015 Services: NODE_NETWORK, NODE_BLOOM, NODE_WITNESS (13) Height: 426397 (92.81{88c91daedd271a990a10650c05d769cae2765e0603edf30ca95f18704e5748e8})

Assuming i can work out these hiccups, well… what's next? Just let her purr along? Should i be running this bare metal? I'm sort of floundering, so any and all guidance (or criticisms) would be greatly appreciated. The setup guides were awesome, but i need the slightly beyond beginner tips and tricks. Or maybe i should have just used the GUI. Are the tools / functionality mostly the same? I prefer to use PuTTY, if at all possible. Thank you, in advance, for the guidance.

EDIT: Lastly, how difficult is it to copy/move the blockchain, ~100+GB download, either to a new VM, or new physical disk (currently .vdi)? Thx.
