[erlang-questions] where to find correct documentation for erlang distribution over SSL?

Hi Michael,

Yes, the cookies are identical, and I was able to get a pong without
SSL.  All my testing so far is within the firewall so that is not an
issue.  I may try again with OTP R12B4 if it turns out that SSL
distribution is broken in R12B5.

 Hey, Kris - a couple things ...


 *  /home/.erlang.cookie is same on both nodes ?
    or from erl shell,
    1> erlang:set_cookie(node(), some_secret_cookie).
    2> erlang:get_cookie().
    'some_secret_cookie'
    3>


 * do they 'pong' without SSL ?


 * probably you already checked your firewall ports
