I have an RPC node fully synchronized.

I can subscribe on "logsSubscribe" with the wss://api.mainnet-beta.solana.com endpoint:

wscat -c wss://api.mainnet-beta.solana.com


It will display all the transactions as expected. But with my node, I get no transaction displayed (and no error as well, I'm subscribed):

wscat -c ws://localhost:8900


Am I missing a parameter in the validator.sh ?

First, you cannot have trailing \ in the last line of your config.

Have you confirmed your validator is running and caught up? What server specs are you using here?

You may need to add account indexing https://docs.solana.com/validator/get-started/setup-an-rpc-node#account-indexing.

What is the response from the server when you connect WS, do other methods work?
