Transactions are not reflected in other wallets

+1 vote
Hello Multichain.

I have configured Multichain to run as bitcoin. I have two nodes which are peers in the network and each node has two addresses. When I transfer my "bitcoins" from an address to another address inside the same node, the balance is updated immediately. When I transfer "bitcoins" between nodes, the balance is never being updated.

Could you please give me a hand? Thank you very much.

Are you sure the nodes are connected to each other? You can use the getpeerinfo API command to check. You can also use getrawtransaction on the other node to see if the created transaction was seen. And finally, it may just be a matter of waiting for confirmation, so you can use the appropriate parameter for each balance checking API to indicate that you want to include transactions with zero confirmations.

Using the getpeerinfo command I could confirm all my nodes are interconnected. However, when I use getrawtransaction on the node that was supposed to receive the transaction, it does not appear. Might it be an error in my params.dat file ? I used exactly the same copy provided by multichain.
Please compare the output of these to see if the transaction is unconfirmed:

getmultibalances * * 0

getmultibalances * * 1
Thank you very much! It was a matter of waiting longer for the transactions to be processed through the blockchain.
