In bitcoin's gossip network will there be a path from every node to every other node? It can certainly have different number of hops.
I have a private testnet in which I modified some source code. I get a graph like this
So we have a path from A to C but not C to A. So when C mines a block, the information is remained with it and it does not send inv messages out. Not sure if I am wrong or this is expected?
The only change I did is to make testnet work on my localhost. Removed the IsLocal() check from IsRoutable() and added my own hardcoded seeds.
