Send Ether from MetaMask to Private Network

This section describes how to send Ether from the MetaMask account to my Ether private network.

I have fixed the issue with the network ID and chainId on my private network. So I tried to send some Ethers from my MetaMask wallet to by "geth" wallet.

1. On "geth" console, pick up the address my second account:

> receiver = eth.accounts[1]

> web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(receiver),"ether")

2. On MetaMask, click "SEND" to get the send form. Then fill in the receiver address and 2 Ethers.

3. Click "SUBMIT". The transaction is accepted!

4. Click on "...". The status is "Pending". The account balance is still 100 ETH.

5. Check "geth" log file. I see this entry:

Submitted transaction fullhash=

6. Query this transaction on the "geth" console:

> txid = "0x029f863ecf7c888825e0a26d215d0e60467d9fe95af1f3d8718993e6cd8d0284"

> eth.getTransaction(txid)
  blockNumber: null,
  from: "0xef6ea9f8bd78ac42fb2617ba90846d5785bb320c",
  gas: 21000,
  gasPrice: 1000000000,
  input: "0x",
  nonce: 0,
  r: "0x85524853c566b81f03526f280a5350a0a3af8a8f9b23e37b252ac55cc4271559",
  s: "0x67d9f531bc99583ea0ee9f0d9ed50ea2a5a421464b32a158f3b897f5428301ca",
  to: "0x485410d2e7b8bfb6f78e5e5acf7d1057cb853fce",
  transactionIndex: 0,
  v: "0x298",
  value: 2000000000000000000

Cool. Everything is ok. The transaction will be sealed into the blockchain later.
