First you need to install node-bitcoin-p2p.

Then, run these steps to install node-bitcoin-exit:

# Get a copy of node-bitcoin-exit
git clone git:// --recursive
# Switch to the folder
cd node-bitcoin-exit
# Link in your copy of node-bitcoin-p2p
sudo npm link bitcoinjs
# Install other dependencies
sudo npm install


Start the server with

node server.js

forever start server.js
