I created a local private test network (using geth) with two nodes which are initiliazed with enough ethers and gas using a custom genesis block. Both have accounts and now I wanted to try sending a transaction from one to another. I tried the command given in this link: https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum/wiki/Management-APIs#personal_sendtransaction
However, the transaction stays in the pending transaction list and never arrives at the other node. As I understand theoretically, normally it shoould be sent to the all nodes in the network, no?
Can anyone tell me what can be wrong here?
See the image below where the sending node (top) and the target node (bottom) are shown:
In addition, I don't understand how but the second node (the node that suppose to receive the transaction) is apparently mining its balanca value is increasing slowly. The first node however remains the same. PS: I made "miner.start" before on both nodes.
