I have a bitcoin-core node running on a Raspberry Pi on my local network. The node is publically visible and running fine (I can see it on bitnodes.21.co - it has connections and is synced to the latest block).
I have a Windows PC with a Bitcoin-Qt installation that I would like to connect only to the local node, only when I start it up it doesn't seem to connect. I'm starting it from a command line with
bitcoin-qt.exe -connect 192.168.0.6
The GUI just says "Connecting to peers" and Help > Debug shows 0 connections.
I can ping the Pi from the Windows machine and I can telnet to port 8333 on the Pi from the Windows machine, so I believe the network connectivity isn't the issue.
Any advice on how to diagnose what's going on? (RPC commands? Logs?)
Am I using the right command to connect?
