I recently compiled the source code for stellar-core (v9.1.0-31-g1380e88) and I'm trying to run it in the testnet, but it doesn't connect to any of the
KNOWN_PEERS, constantly giving me the warning
[Overlay WARNING] Received error (ERR_LOAD): peer rejected and then
[Overlay INFO] Dropping peer. This causes the core to never leave the
Joining SCP state.
NETWORK_PASSPHRASE="Test SDF Network ; September 2015" PEER_PORT=11625 TARGET_PEER_CONNECTIONS=8 MAX_PEER_CONNECTIONS=12 KNOWN_PEERS=[ "core-testnet1.stellar.org", "core-testnet2.stellar.org", "core-testnet3.stellar.org" ] NODE_IS_VALIDATOR=false FAILURE_SAFETY=1 UNSAFE_QUORUM=false
For fresh nodes, that do not have peers tables filled out, if all of their
KNOWN_PEERShave all connection slots taken, it is impossible to connect. I think that sending list of peers with
ERR_LOADmessage would help with that issue.
However, I couldn't find any other list of testnet peers, and would like to know what can I do to try connecting in this situation.
