I have 3 nodes running on a private network.
After asking this question, I've manually added
node1 as peer to
node3, so my network looks like this:
_______ ---------> | node2 | / |_______| v _______ | node1 | |_______| ^ \ _______ ---------> | node3 | |_______|
I've left the nodes running through last night, but around 10 PM (BRST),
node3 stopped listening to
admin.peers was empty), while
node1 was still connected to both of them (
admin.peers contained 2 items), but not getting any interaction.
Is it possible that this is a problem with Ethereum protocol or would it be something else?
I'm running the nodes in the same physical machine, but in different VMs. Those VMs have
Ubuntu 12.04 installed.
The VMs are running over a CentOS with VMWare vCenter.
