By default every blockchain has different addresses, in order to help prevent a mix-up between them. So you nee to find the address of the other server, after trying to connect it to this chain, not another one.

first sorry for my poor English. 1MJM3CXP1Zg5RVmg6UeQwupAnniTCC8vENXjLP < this address second server
Please show the full output of the second server when you tried to connect it to this chain on the first server.

i test on my pc
This is the problem. You are trying to connect to chain2, but the command you issued on the first server is for chain1. These have incompatible addresses.
no i just test same problem on chain 2 and 3. it same problem chain1 and 2
You have to connect to the same chain on both servers, not between different chains. Please try going through the Getting Started guide:
