It's now time to finally launch our nodes!
6.1 We will be launching our nodes in a tmux session, so we can get the three nodes, inside one terminal window
6.11 To start a tmux session, execute the following command, it doesn't matter in which folder you are
6.12 Now press
ctrl + shift + b + % at the same time to open an additional window, inside your terminal window. Then, press
ctrl + b + " Below is what it should look like
6.13 Let's start the block-producing node in the first panel (to the left), with the following incredibly simple command
6.14 Now let's switch to the second panel and launch our first relay node
6.15 Finally, switch to the last panel, and launch your second relay node
It might take some time before your block-producing node is connected with your two other relay nodes. As long as you (sometimes) see your block-producing node connected to two peers, it's fine, because it means that everything works. However, if you have never see your block-producing node being connected to two peers, then you likely have a problem.
It's also worth noting that this may be caused by the fact that one of your nodes may not be fully synchronized with the blockchain, so make sure to also take a look at the value for "epoch / slot", as well as the block number.
If you want to take a look at the peers of your nodes, you can simply press "p" inside one of your three panels, and you will all the peers your node is connected to. To come back to the default dashboard, simply press "esc".
