To run Telethon on a test server, use the following code:
client = TelegramClient(None, api_id, api_hash) client.session.set_dc(dc_id, '126.96.36.199', 80)
You can check your
'test ip' on https://my.telegram.org.
You should set
None session so to ensure you’re generating a new
authorization key for it (it would fail if you used a session where you
had previously connected to another data center).
Note that port 443 might not work, so you can try with 80 instead.
Once you’re connected, you’ll likely be asked to either sign in or sign up. Remember anyone can access the phone you choose, so don’t store sensitive data here.
Valid phone numbers are
X is the
YYYY is any number you want, for example,
dc_id = 2 would
9996621234. The code sent by Telegram will be
dc_id repeated five
times, in this case,
22222 so we can hardcode that:
client = TelegramClient(None, api_id, api_hash) client.session.set_dc(2, '188.8.131.52', 80) client.start( phone='9996621234', code_callback=lambda: '22222' )
Note that Telegram has changed the length of login codes multiple times in the
past, so if
dc_id repeated five times does not work, try repeating it six
