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
2. Enter the provider enode address to the "Add peer" input
3. Provider's node should be added to the connected peers
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
