Rendezvous connection help PLEASE
I'm pretty new to jxta. I'm trying to make a very simple p2p overlay network but I'm having some trouble just trying to get 2 different computers to recognize each other on the network. I have downloaded many sender/receiver examples and can get them working on the same machine, but can't get them to work over a network. I read a post from late March saying the backbone rendezvous peers are down, so my first question is are they still down?
I started using the Jxta shell to see if I could find what the problem was. I made one computer act as rendezvous, enabled tcp incoming and outgoing, and tried both with and without HTTP. Then i used whoami to find the tcp and port for that rendezvous. I then started the shell on a 2nd machine as an edge node and I entered the tcp://[ip]:[port] of the 1st machine into the rendezvous seeding URI and hit +. I then start the 2nd shell and use peers -r for discovery and nothing happens. I have let them sit open for a few hours and they never find each other. I have no firewall on the rendezvous machine. The 2nd machine is using my neighbors unsecured wi-fi but I don't think its firewalled because I've recently got the same 2 machines to send files using javaSockets.
SOOO my main questions are:
1.) Is there anything special you are suppose to do so an edge can connect with rendezvous that I have created?
2.) Can anyone point me to an example that should work on 2 machines across the internet?
3.) If I put the tcp/port of a rendezvous node into the rendezvous seeding URI, why won't the edge connect to the rendezvous?
