Open port 6000


I’m following the coincashew guide to set up a stake pool on testnet. I have a 1 relay node (cloud) and a BP node (vm on virtualbox on local mac) both running on UBUNTU. I can start and run both nodes, but they don’t connect. I’m struggling to open port 6000…

Using sudo lsof -i -P -n | grep LISTEN I can see that both are LISTENing… but I think I’m still missing something.

If it is a local Mac, you are probably behind some kind of router. That router has to forward requests on port 6000 to the vm.

And the IP of the block producer set on the relay has to be the IP of your home Internet connection, not the local IP inside your home network.

Thanks for your help - I’ll try that.
