Finally, click on `Connect` button and wait for your wallet to connect.
If you don't see this pop up, go to `Settings` > `Node` page.
If your remote node requires authentication, you can enter a username in `Daemon username` and a password in `Daemon password`.
If your wallet is already in Advanced mode, you can skip the next step.
If your wallet is not in Advanced mode, you will have to change it to Advanced mode (see next step).
If your wallet is open, you need to close it first. Go to `Settings` > `Wallet` > `Close this wallet`
In `Address` you should fill the address of the remote node that you want to connect to. This address might look like `node.moneroworld.com` or it could look like any IP address.
In `Port` you should fill the port of the remote node. If a remote node is listed as `node.moneroworld.com:18089`, the address is `node.moneroworld.com` and the port is `18089`. The default port is `18081`, but it can vary depending on the node you are connecting to.
On this page select `Remote Node`.
The main menu (`Welcome to Monero` screen) will open. At the bottom left, click on `Change wallet mode` button, and on the next page select `Advanced mode`. Next, open your wallet file again.
To check if your wallet is in advanced mode, go to `Settings` > `Info` and see `Wallet mode`.
To use a custom remote node, your wallet must be in advanced mode. Simple mode and Simple mode (bootstrap) don't support this feature.

When opening your wallet, a pop up will appear with the option `Use custom settings`. Click on it, and you will be sent to `Settings` > `Node` page.
