I also can't connect to that node. It simply seems like it is offline. Node explorers like 1ml don't keep track in Realtime if nodes are online. Did you talk to the owner of that node?

  • Yep, the owner said that its all connected and ready to go. Owner is running vpn on his computer, does that play a role?

  • The owner has to open port 9735 on his/her firewall. Some people miss this.. If they don't they can connect to other nodes but can't have incoming connections Mar 16, 2019 at 7:37
  • They did open the port! I think it works now.

  • It was the port.. now there is a new problem... remote channel message unreasonable to self delay = 2016 (max=200).. what does this mean?
