Should the harvester machine show balance XCH like the same full node machine?

Hello Everyone
I need your help :grin: :grin: :grin:
After setting from Farming on many machines 路 Chia-Network/chia-blockchain Wiki 路 GitHub
I don鈥檛 know, I mistake to do something or not
The harvester machine does not show balance XCH like the same full node machine, it鈥檚 normal or not?

Do you have your wallet synced?

Yes, that鈥檚 normal. The harvester doesn鈥檛 have your private key, and is only running the 鈥渉arvester鈥 process. The harvester simply communicates with the farmer, and that communication is only like:

Farmer: Hey harvester, here is a new challenge.
Harvester: Okay, here are the proofs I found for that challenge.

Think of harvesters as dumb drones. The farmer is their manager.

The farmer usually runs on the same machine as your full node, and wallet. Those are technically three separate things, but they usually go together (like when you chia start farmer, it actually starts node, wallet, and farmer).
