I'm trying to make to nodes on the same computer communicate. I set up two bitcoin folder with two bitcoin.conf files. bitcoin.conf in the second node is the following:
while in the first node is just I've just set the rpcuser and rpcpasswords
Now I start the nodes with the following command
./bitcoin/src/bitcoind -regtest -rpcport=5444 -port=18888 -datadir=/Users/tommaso/.bitcoin/
But they don't connect to each other.
Only if a run the command
./bitcoin/src/bitcoin-cli -regtest -rpcport=5444 -datadir=/Users/tommaso/.bitcoin/ addnode "127.0.0.1:18444" "onetry"
they finally connect
Why does addnode=127.0.0.1:18444 in bitcoin.conf doesn't work?
