    Ok, so originally I was thinking anything other than running your own node on the same server was a situation that would need to SSH tunnel for communications. Now from the other thread I’m a little unsure. If I am using for example the coinpayments adapter, do I still need to use SSH tunneling in some way? Or is this basically for when you have 2 different servers running? Like server A has the website and server B runs your node.

    For coinpayments you can restrict calls to a certain ip or ip range and it has to match secrets, etc. Is this all I really need or am I supposed to somehow setup some kind of tunnel that sends all the communications to their api over?

    Thanks and sorry if this is kinda basic but I wasn’t too sure by your wording if this applies always or just between servers A and B when not using some 3rd party service.

    Side question: Any plans to integrate with gourl btc? I believe that can just work with like an electrum wallet that you control. Like any deposits and payments go there.

    SSH tunneling is needed if you have set up a full node on a machine different than the one you are running WordPress on, i.e. for the connection to the JSON-RPC API of Bitcoin core and friends. (for more, see here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Enabling_SSL_on_original_client_daemon )

    It is not needed or recommended for the cloud wallets.

    I do not have plans to integrate the plugin with GoUrl.
