I run geth with this command

geth --syncmode "fast" --cache 2048 --datadir /data/ethereum --ws --wsaddr 0.0.0.0 --wsorigins '*' --wsapi 'web3,eth,net,db,personal' --rpc --rpcaddr 0.0.0.0

then i subscribe newHeads and recieve {"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"result":"0x30ebfd74dc99548d16b64d23eda6f964"}.But can not recieve any block head.I try to connect infura wss://mainnet.infura.io/ws and recieve new block head.

import websocket
import json
import time
try:
    import thread
except ImportError:
    import _thread as thread

def on_message(ws, message):
    print(message)

def on_error(ws, error):
    print(error)

def on_close(ws):
    print("### closed ###")

def on_open(ws):
    def run(*args):
        ws.send(json.dumps({"id": 1, "method": "eth_subscribe", "params": ["newHeads"]}))
        print("thread terminating...")
    thread.start_new_thread(run, ())


if __name__ == "__main__":
    websocket.enableTrace(True)
    # ws = websocket.WebSocketApp("wss://mainnet.infura.io/ws",
    ws=websocket.WebSocketApp("ws://127.0.0.1:8546",
                              on_message = on_message,
                              on_error = on_error,
                              on_close = on_close)
    ws.on_open = on_open
    ws.run_forever()

Am I wrong ? My geth version is Geth/v1.9.6-stable-bd059680/linux-amd64/go1.13.1.

Thanks

Please check whether your Geth node is completely synced

  • only full sync support subscribe? – egodcore Oct 30 '19 at 5:57
  • no, Fast sync will support subscription, what I just meant is to check whether the node synced completely or not? – Akshay Dev Oct 30 '19 at 7:44
  • oh, i checkecd that the node synced completely. But steel can not recieve response – egodcore Oct 30 '19 at 8:47
  • try this on your terminal -- > wscat -c "ws://127.0.01:8546" then > {"jsonrpc":"2.0", "id": 1, "method": "eth_subscribe", "params": ["newHeads"]} – Akshay Dev Oct 30 '19 at 9:37
