I am following a Smart contract book which uses rinkeby network with geth:
geth --rinkeby --pot 31303
It says to leave the network to sync overnight and resume the book exercises when the sync is complete.
Does it mean that I have to run the above geth command and leave my computer running through out the night? How will I know that the syncing has completed or not? What if the syncing does not complete even if I run my computer through the whole night?
Somebody please guide me.
