I am trying to run a private test-network over multiple VMs. The Flextesa approach seems very easy to deploy but only allows for local sandboxes. Has anybody ever tried to connect multiple Flextesa sandboxes over a network or is it hard-coded to not allow such approaches? The K8s approach is not usable for me because of Kubernetes.

Flextesa's mini-net has an option --add-external-peer-port to allow other nodes.

It has been used to test 1 node joining the sandbox (incl. as a baker → in order to test Kiln).

I don't know of any attempt to make larger networks but it's worth a try.
