In my case ports 15001 to 15004 are open in the firewall on both
machines of my test cluster. Indeed, the node is assigned jobs and
executes them, provided it is marked free manually. It then returns to
the down state.

Searching the archives, I've seen the issue "no hello/cluster-addrs
messages received from server" (which I get probing the node with
momctl) mentioned a few times, but a possible solution was never

How to get round this? I should probably mention that I've followed by
the numbers the quickstart guide. In addition I have configured the
server and adjusted the firewall as mentioned above. There seems to be
an additional step to get started?

cheers, gianfranco
