I want to create a locally bitcoin network. I use testnet and testnet-in-box, both of them working well. but they use the testnet-blockchain, I want to test the real blockchain. so I use two PC, one is win7, and the other is ubuntu in vBox. In the bitcoin.conf of win7:
testnet=0 irc=0 dnsseed=0 upnp=0 listen=0 checkpoints=0 connect=192.168.1.126:19000 gen=1 rpcuser=test rpcpassword=123 port=19010 rpcport=19011 keypool=5
and in the bitcoin.conf in ubuntu:
testnet=0 irc=0 dnsseed=0 upnp=0 listen=1 checkpoints=0 connect=192.168.1.124:19010 rpcuser=test rpcpassword=123 port=19000 rpcport=19001 keypool=5
In win7 : the bitcoin-qt show "No active connections to bitcoin network"
In ubuntu: the bitcoin-qt show "8 active connections to bitcoin network"
I think the status in ubuntu is not correct, because I want it only connect to the bitcoin-qt in win7. and I also want to know how to mine in this local network?
OK... I found the bitcoin-qt under ubuntu doesn't configured by
bitcoin.conf. So I use
bitcoind -datadir=~/.bitcoin -daemon to run the service. and this time, I got "1 active connections to bitcoin network". and I am sure they link to each other.
