Hello, I’m following this basic Whisper tutorial here:
I’m running a bare public Whisper node and subscribing to it a public channel using
web3.js, via a
generateSymmetricKey("DEFAULT_CHANNEL"), and a default topic of
I can message a friend logged into the same node, but when he runs a local node, which also finds its own devp2p peers, and we are both on
--rinkeby, we never see each others messages.
Are there other things we can try? Isn’t running a Whisper public chat room as simple as distributing the same channel key and topic to everyone?
Much appreciated, Paul
