Static Nodes JSON
The optimal way to have your node connect to the static network of nodes is to create a
static-nodes.json file in your
- Create a new file called
- Copy and paste all the enode URLs to your
static-nodes.json(make sure to format it in proper JSON format)
- Save the file
- Restart the node and it should automatically sync (on every reboot) with the nodes defined in the static nodes file!
After launching your own Client or Sealer node, sometimes it takes a while for your node to discover the existing nodes and start syncing the blockchain. To speed things up, you can manually force your node to connect to another node by
