I followed (https://ethereum.stackexchange.com/a/13035/4575) to connect to my private network using Parity. Same configuration works on the different node.

Parity halts on connection. It won't give any output or log for me to track what went wrong. What should I do to prevent this problem?

parity --chain parity.json --network-id 23422 --reserved-peers myPrivateNetwork.txt -ludp=debug,tcp=debug,sync=debug --jsonrpc-port 8546
2017-05-19 12:40:55  main INFO parity::run  Starting Parity/v1.7.0-unstable-7707f75-20170327/x86_64-linux-gnu/rustc1.16.0
2017-05-19 12:40:55  main INFO parity::run  State DB configuration: fast
2017-05-19 12:40:55  main INFO parity::run  Operating mode: active
2017-05-19 12:40:55  main INFO ethcore::service  Configured for Ebloc using Ethash engine
2017-05-19 12:40:55  hyper-client INFO miner  Updated conversion rate to Ξ1 = US$110.54 (1076964100 wei/gas)
...//HALTS do not do anything.

It exits with following error message: RPC io error: Address already in use (os error 98). But I have doubled check that the port 8546 is empty. netstat -antu | grep "8546" returns empty. When I try with --jsonrpc-port 8547 or different empty port number, it gives the same error message.

  • Does that also happen on port 53216? Which version of Parity is that?

  • Why are you running nightly by the way?

  • nightly release? Actually no specific reason. It was the only installation guide I was able to find. Do you suggest any other release I could try? @5chdn
