How to Connect Private Network Ethereum using GoEthereum

Posted By : Dipen Chawla | 24-Jan-2018


An Ethereum organize is a private system if the hubs are not associated with the fundamental system hubs. In this setting private just means held or segregated, as opposed to ensured or secure. 

Picking A Network ID 

Since associations between hubs are substantial just if peers have indistinguishable convention form and system ID, you can viably disconnect your system by setting both of these to a nondefault esteem. We prescribe utilizing the - networkid summon line choice for this. Its contention is a whole number, the fundamental system has id 1 (the default). So in the event that you supply your own custom system ID which is not quite the same as the primary system your hubs won't interface with different hubs and shape a private system. 

Making The Genesis Block 

Each blockchain begins with the beginning square. When you run geth with default settings out of the blue, the principle net beginning square is focused on the database. For a private system, you as a rule need an alternate beginning piece. 

Here's a case of a custom genesis.json document. The config area guarantees that specific convention updates are promptly accessible. 

With the bootnode operational and remotely reachable (you can attempt telnet <ip> <port> to guarantee it's to be sure reachable), begin each resulting Geth hub indicated the bootnode for peer disclosure by means of the - bootnodes signal. It will most likely likewise be alluring to keep the information catalog of your private system isolated, so do likewise determine a custom - datadir signal.


1. Create genesis.json inside "private-ethereum" folder.

2. Setup Genesis Block- Genesis.json

  "config": {
        "chainId": 1000111,
        "homesteadBlock": 0,
        "eip155Block": 0,
        "eip158Block": 0
  "alloc"      : {"0x4e7348ef4b62f5c1ed9ac6de9cb798281d43f279":{ "balance": "35000" }},
  "coinbase"   : "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000",
  "difficulty" : "0x20000",
  "extraData"  : "",
  "gasLimit"   : "0x2fefd8",
  "nonce"      : "0x0000000000000042",
  "mixhash"    : "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000",
  "parentHash" : "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000",
  "timestamp"  : "0x00"

3. create folder and genesis.json sudo geth --datadir "private-ethereum" init "private-ethereum/genesis.json".

4. sudo geth --datadir private-ethereum  --networkid 1234 --rpcport 8000 --rpcaddr --port 30303 --rpc --rpcapi="db,eth,net,web3,personal,web3"  --maxpeers 3 --nat=any --nodiscover --rpccorsdomain "*"  console
