hi i am running jxta-c on my home network when i look for peers i can see peers on other computers on the local network but none on the internet.
i have run a network packet capture program(ethereal) and this shows both that jxta-c is communicating with the rdv hosts

http://192.18.37.37:9700
http://192.18.37.38:9700
http://192.18.37.39:9700
(using http since i am using a router)
and that the hosts are actually communicating back to my PC
but still no peers are found
i have included the capture showing communication (you will need ethereal to view)
and also my PlatformConfig file

Hello pds8475,

I can not find peers in LAN. How did you do? Could you please tell me?

Thanks!

Note that 'peers -r' command won't give you all the peers on the network as JXTA discovery is not designed to be exhaustive search, but a way to find some resource.

With that said, doing simply a 'peers -r', most likely you will get only the peer advertisement of your RDV.

To verify peer discovery, you would better to have two peers, then you can do an qualified search by doing 'peers -r -aName -v
'. For example: 'peers -r -aName -vJXTA.ORG:38'

The public RDVs are with following peer name, which you can try if you are connected to the pubnet.

JXTA.ORG:36
JXTA.ORG:37
JXTA.ORG:38
JXTA.ORG:39

HTH,
