Electrum

To get connected to your Litecoin shared node via Electrum, once your status is showing <ready> and <synced> click on <connect> link from the action menu (bottom right) or from the choices on the top bar 

Download the Electrum package and platform, and install. 

 * The address in your dashboard/connect page will include an authentication token. However, Electrum will not work with the authentication token so remove that when copying the URL.

If you already have an Electrum wallet, this will launch your Electrum transaction dashboard. If you do not yet have a wallet the set up the wizard will help you create one in a few easy steps.

The wizard will walk you through the creation of the wallet, setting up a seed and password, and then will launch the wallet where you can send, receive Bitcoin and view transaction history,

On subsequent visits, you will be taken straight to your wallet.
