Thanks. I've heard about the insecurity of IP payments on the forum now and will use bitcoin addresses.

"listtransactions" is not implemented in the bitcoind binary (0.3.11).

Correct, it's a patch.

See https://bitcointalksearch.org/topic/patch-implement-xlisttransactions-611

never tried, so i'm not sure about
- listtransactions [count=10] [minconf=1] [includegenerated=true],
'bitcoind help' shows it, so i guess it'll work.

you know that accepting payments sent to your IP isn't very secure, don't you?
there's no authentication at all, anyone in between you and the sender might pretend to be you and grab your coins.


why not use a (few) bitcoin-address(es) and call
- getreceivedbyaddress [minconf=1] and/or
- getreceivedbylabel

Any updates on this? I accept payments through Bitcoin sent to my server's IP, but how do I list the transactions and associated comments without a GUI?

There were a few patches (listtransactions etc) but I'm not sure whether they are in trunk.

I am running bitcoind under linux. I see it chewing up a lit of CPU time but the system is still responsive so I am assuming it is just keeping the box busy. However, I would like to check in on it occasionally to see how it is doing. When I run the bitcoin app it tells me that port 8333 is in use. Is there any way to check on what the daemon is up to?

Is there a way to see what payments have been sent out?

Is there a way to check the khash/s on a gui-less system?  I've looked in the docs, but didn't see anything.

I was just on my way back to report that I found the answer to this at

Thanks for the quick response though!

run 'bitcoind help' and it tells you various commands you can use to query its status.
