When using –sname to name the nodes (without “.local”) I am unable to connect from one node to another.
iex(node_two@macbook)3> Node.connect :"node_one@macbook" false
However, if I use –name to set a fully qualified name then connecting works just fine.
iex(firstname.lastname@example.org)3> Node.connect :"email@example.com" true
I have a pretty typical OS X 10.8 configuration.
