Troubleshooting issue with Harvester connecting to farmer

Hi - I think I’m having a bit of an issue connecting my harvester up to my farmer and I was wondering if anyone could help?

My farmer is a Pi running ubuntu, my harvester is a PC running ubuntu. My farmer has one external USB drive attached, and I’m currently trying to attach a single drive on my harvester too (I’ll add to that once I get it working!).

I’ve followed all the instructions (I think!) but I’m not seeing anything that I was expecting in the logs of either machine (logging level is INFO).

On my harvester, the only reference I can see to the farmer is:

2021-05-28T11:35:44.879 harvester harvester               : INFO     Reconnecting to peer {'host': '192.168.x.x', 'port': 8447}
2021-05-28T11:35:44.908 harvester harvester_server        : INFO     Connected with farmer {'host': '192.168.x.x', 'port': 8447}

and on the farmer, I can’t see any reference at all until

2021-05-28T12:18:05.115 farmer chia.farmer.farmer         : INFO     peer disconnected {'host': '192.168.x.x', 'port': 8448}
2021-05-28T12:29:41.258 farmer farmer_server              : INFO     Connection closed: 192.168.x.x, node id: xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I can’t find any other references at all to “farmer_server” in my farmer logs.

I assume these aren’t connecting properly, but can anyone point me in the right direction of what I should be troubleshooting here?

Since version 1.1.6, all networking traffic is logged as DEBUG. You need to set your logging level to DEBUG to see it.


amazing - thanks dude!


Sorry - it even says DEBUG on the wiki. I totally blanked it. Thanks again for your help!
