How to view connection issues?

+2 votes
With a friend we are trying to test multichain. This is our scenario.
He has a multichain node initially started in a windows host (node A), then in that same host 2 vm (ubuntu), both connected thru private ip address to the initial node A. He opened the port in his firewall for incoming traffic.
I have started a node (B) connected to his initial node (A). And in my win host a vm with ubuntu connected thru private ip to my win host node (B).
At some point node A and node B got disconnected, after several hours never got reconnected again. What is the logic of auto reconnect? is there some parameter to set the reconnect freq? Is there some log to see if there is a connection/network error o reconnect attempt?

Note: Even though the node A and B were disconnected, the internal sub-networks remained connected at all time

Thanks in advance!

The place to look is the debug.log file in your blockchain directory. If you run MultiChain with -debug=net on the command line, you'll see more debug information relating to network activity.
