I spent some time going through the GNUnet handbook and tried out some of the commands. Naturally I compiled the most cutting edge version from git via AUR. Now I’m trying this on my LAN, building a connection between my laptop and my smartphone.

Now two of my smartphones have a running and working GNUnet service on them. One from git built locally, one installed from a package. Next up: creating a real network!

I was successful in connecting my laptop and my smartphone through GNUnet! I made a GNS query from the laptop to a record created on the phone and it came back. Not immediately of course, I had to first “pair” them as “friends” by adding the phone’s peer ID to the laptop. But then everything started magically working. Even on a second phone which also wasn’t previously able to propagate its GNS records.
