if you try to connect to that rendezvous you will experience no connection, as that rendezvous are offline since a month ago.

If you would like to try a connection between two peers you could run two shell from two separate directory and configure one as rendezvous with the command

rdvcontrol rdv start

the other as edge and connect to the rendezvous with the command

rdvcontrol edge connect

or something similar, the address could a little different.

Good work.
