Connecting with providers

As a consumer, you won't be able to consume any data assets before connecting to the right providers, and you can do that in two ways.

  • Add provider through UI 1. Go to "Advanced" -> "Peers" tab

Advanced/Peers tab

2. Enter the provider enode address to the "Add peer" input

Adding enode to the available peers

3. Provider's node should be added to the connected peers

Connected provider's node

  • Add provider through static-nodes.json file 1. Go to your local NDM package 2. Access nethermind/Data/static-nodes.json 3. Add provider's enode address to the .json file (remember about the proper formatting - an array of strings) 4. Run NDM 5. You should see in the logs that your node is connecting to the given enode
