We will test deploy and propose across the network. Testing will be similar to this demo.
Connect to the bootstrap and find your peers.
Deploy a contract to your local node.
Propose a block and observe the fork choice rule.
Configure your network
See RNode supported network configuration for information on how to configure your network to connect to other nodes.

Please install RNode prior to the start of the testing session.
NOTE - At this time RNode does not run successfully in Docker on MacOSX. This is because you must run Docker with the host networking option. By default, Docker runs in network bridge mode. To use the host networking option, you must include the 'network=host' option in your Docker run command. This flag does not work on MacOSX.
docker pull rchain/rnode:testing
Download and save the bonds.txt file
Note - If you previously downloaded and save the bonds file for a different testing session, you need to make a change. Previously the system looked for the bonds file in the /validators directory. Changes in the software now supports looking for the bonds file in the /genesis directory. Please make sure the bonds file is stored in the correct directory.
Select a validator key
Empty the var/lib/rnode directory
Connect to the bootstrap node
rnode run -b rnode://firstname.lastname@example.org:40400
Note the port is different than what is described in the network configuration dock.
