Clarification - Peers & private net & network status

Hi all,

I am confused with a couple of concepts and I will try to explain my questions about them.

I have created a private net and when I start the "geth" , the following log is displayed:

I0929 22:48:19.549344 8097 backend.go:303] Successfully wrote genesis block. New genesis hash = 27114fc409e6d26000d85f4602349bb8ab27a11b5f0307638b5d8bae3a3e791a

Question 1: What does the "enode" information mean? If I have a private net, the IP-address should be, right? But I see the IP in the log "enode://fe..."

Am I wrong and I am not running a private net?

Question 2: If I am running geht, then I have my own peer, right? Where can I find my peer-ID and the public/private key of my peer?

Question 3: It is possible to install PM2 (, but which is the use of it? To install several peers in the private net?

Thanks in advance
