I have two signing nodes on machine #1 and two new nodes on machine #2.

The nodes on #1 are running and I have them in admin under geth. But when I try and connect the nodes on #2 I get various errors. I think this is IP related. I did ifconfig on #1 and used the broadcast address.

I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and geth 1.8. The nodes on #1 seem to work. I use PoA and the network is private.

Has anyone any idea what could be the cause?

From #2 Connection Request -

Error on #2 -

From #1

This is how I connect on #1 and that works -
