I'm having so much trouble getting geth to talk to a private blockchain of Parity nodes. Here is where I am right now:
I have fired up geth with a custom data director and a genesis file that think should be a match for the Parity chain spec file.
But geth does not detect the Parity peers. So I add them manually using the JS console. The command returns "true" but then admin.peers shows no peers.
> admin.addPeer("enode:<string>:<port>") true > admin.peers 
Can anyone think of why this might be?
