I am currently running two nodes, one private (forging) and one public (not forging). The public node is at 18.104.22.168.
I'm planning to build some services on top of the public node, but I'm noticing that it's always 2 to 8 blocks behind the private node. My forging private node is now following perfectly the blockexplorer as well.
Is the network so loaded at the moment that it could explain that?
