I am running a full node in a testnet and I am trying to connect a light node. I am using the following command:

geth --datadir node1 --port 30313 --rpc --rpcport 3013 --rpcaddr --ipcpath node1/geth.ipc --rpcapi="db,eth,net,web3,personal" --networkid 15 --rpccorsdomain "*" --ws --wsaddr --wsport 3113 --wsorigins "*" --syncmode light 

I am using static-nodes.json and admin.addPeer() but they dont work, but if I try to connect another full node in the same way, everything works. Any idea how can I connect a light node peer?

My Geth version is 1.8.19

It is necessary to add in the full node: --lightserv
