1. When I'm in a private network, am I interacting with the main network blockchain, or a separate (private) one?
2. No matter what random, super-long networkid
I use, I always end up having peers. I want to end up having a private network with only certain peers (to whom I will have given the needed login info in advance) -- how do I achieve that?
I've looked into the references below, but couldn't answer these questions. I'm sure I'm missing something.
Thanks for your help!
