As one of the tests in a corporate set up, we are trying to simulate a basic node network on a linux box. The nodes in question are essentially, two user accounts on the same box. First, on the admin node (first server) was initialized with a chain (say, chain1). The resulting node address for chain1 is : xx.xx.xx.xx: 6000. Then, the dependent node (second server) was initialized using the multichaind chain1@nodeaddress command. Successfully, we are able to generate the wallet addresses for the second server. However, after permissions to connect are issues by first server to the second one, when we tried to initialize the second server, we are encountering the following error:
Error: Unable to bind to 0.0.0.0:6000 on this computer. MultiChain Core is probably already running.
Error: Failed to listen on any port. Use -listen=0 if you want this.
In another attempt, we also tried repeating the process - editing the default-rpc-port in the params.dat file of the second server, as well as manually updating the multichain.conf file at the second node - but all to no avail. Suggestions? How can we ensure that the node-network be created on the same box with two user accounts?
