I would have thought this is fine. The config file is the same on both
machines, and you are then specifying the node name in
/etc/default/spread? (OPTIONS="-n node01") - I'm assuming you're using
the normal debian config layout & init scripts.

If it is still not working and you can't see any mention of the other
machine in /var/log/spread.log then it might be time to use wireshark
(or tcpdump for non-X) to see where your packets are going astray...
