If you want to learn to code you should look it up on Google. It's not something easily explained through the text
I can't just explain that... People go to school for that.

Yes please. Any help will be truly appreciated. I have described my problem on stackexchange.

@etherceo1x1
I am having trouble creating a private ethereum network on AWS. I have enabled TCP/UDP for the desired ports in the firewall in AWS.

On one node A(aws instance) I start the geth console by making use of a custom genesis file using command

geth --datadir="ethdata" init fresh.json
I then execute geth on the same node A using the following command

geth --datadir="ethdata" --networkid 1234 console
Now I startup another AWS instance node B. Here to I initilize geth using the custom genesis file

geth --datadir="ethdata" init fresh.json
And then start geth console in node B using

geth --datadir="ethdata" --networkid 1234 console
And then in node B I execute the following command

admin.addPeer("<enode of the nodeA")
The above command returns me true

However admin.peers in both node A and node B comes up with empty strings.

Occasionally I am able to view other peers connected to either of these nodes (probably because I am executing geth without --nodiscover option), but I am still unsuccessful in establishing a peer-peer connection between my two nodes.

Please advise what could I be going wrong.

PS: I have tried with the bootnode option as well, but still no success.

Question: Can I have just bootnode running on node A and then node B having a geth console running that connects to the enode using bootnodes "enode url" ? Although I did try this, it still didnt result in a proper peer-peer connection.
