Can I run a node from the US Virgin Islands? #300

Hi there, I just installed a mysterium node on a local debian virtual machine via docker. The installation went smooth, no errors. But when I try to run the node with sudo docker start mysterium-node I just get one line back, "mysterium-node", and I'm back to a prompt.

What should happen when I start a node? It would be helpful to know this for diagnostics.

Below is my log. The last line says "failed to resolve country" this because I'm in the US Virgin Islands or should I change my vm's network settings (currently using Bridged Adapter)?

Tx :)

It's probably because your IP didn't match any country in geoip db we are using. You can try to specify your country with, for example: sudo docker start mysterium-node

Thanks @tadovas!, when I run sudo docker start mysterium-node I get an error saying "Unknown flag:"

Instead, I tried re-configuring the container (including the flag this time):

sudo docker rm mysterium-node
sudo docker run --cap-add NET_ADMIN --net host --publish "1194:1194" --name mysterium-node -d mysteriumnetwork/mysterium-node --agreed-terms-and-conditions

Then I started the node and tailed the log:

sudo docker start mysterium-node
sudo docker logs -f mysterium-node

And it looked like the node was up and running as I could see lines like this at the end:

[Mysterium.api] Proposal registered for node: 0xfab35726f8549098c2c6f7c1d36d2428e7e06c38

Finally, I opened the Mysterion client and verified I could see my node in the Country dropdown.

Awesome! ...thanks again :)
