I've 2 machines running. Machine 1 (Ubuntu 18.04) runs the node and Machine 2 (Virtual Box NixOS) runs Kiln 0.4.0.

I've started my Node on Machine 1 (like described here) with:

tezos-node run --rpc-addr

What do I have to enter in Kiln (Machine 2) to add the Node from Machine 1? The local IP from Machine 1 doesn't work.

  • Could you expand on what you mean by The local IP from Machine 1 doesn't work.? Commented Feb 8, 2019 at 18:33
  • The 2 Machines are on the same network. So i've tried to enter 192.168.xxx.xxx:8732 (that's the IP of the Machine where the node runs) in Kiln. Kiln says: "Unable to connect". Commented Feb 8, 2019 at 19:15
  • Do you have some firewall rules getting in the way? Commented Feb 8, 2019 at 20:36
  • My node (Machine 1) connects via VPN to the I-net. But that shouldn't influence my local connectivity? No firewall rules. Is the described way correct? Commented Feb 11, 2019 at 8:16
  • Is it even possible, to connect to something outside the Virtual Box? Commented Feb 11, 2019 at 8:48

I got some protocol errors when I tried adding just <ip>:<port> so I had to use http://<ip>:<port>

Don't know if that helps, but worked for me. 🤷‍♂️

  • Yeah, "http://" is now mandatory with kiln 0.4.0. So i've tried that already. :( Commented Feb 11, 2019 at 9:38

    @Blindripper can you telnet <macine-1-ip> 8732 from machine 2? If no then you have a network issue not related to the node or kiln. Also try telnet <machine-1-ip> 8732 from machine 1 to verify you are binding to the interface. Commented Feb 11, 2019 at 10:32
  • If its not binding, how do you make sure it binds on machine 1 so machine 2 can connect?
