Problem adding peers to Ethereum private network

–1 vote

I have an Ethereum Private Network running on my system and now I want to add a peer to it. To do this, I found the enode URL of this peer using this command:

admin.nodeInfo 

and then added this peer using the following command:

admin.addPeer("enode://3467wu…….”)

Now, when I try to verify whether the peer is added or not using the admin.peers command, it shows no output, only blank brackets which means peer is not added. What mistake did I do?

Seems like you have not created the peer with same Genesis Block. While adding a peer to a network, the peers should have the same Genesis file, only then peers can be added.

You can check the genesis block using the following command:

web3.eth.getBlock(0);
