my ip is set to and my hostname is set to mybox (in 
/etc/hosts there is a mybox so I set my-hostname to it) on both bots. In 
the meantime I tried things and verified that userfile sharing worked 
perfectly with the exact same setup on a dedicated server (my bots are 
both on the localhost but they are behind a router). I've tried opening 
the listening ports and even disabling the firewall completely, which 
didn't work. What else can I do?


P.S: The actions I've taken are being described on
