Nodes not finding each other when ES installed as a windows service

Hi all, new to ElasticSearch and slowly putting the pieces together...

Have 2 nodes on different desktops which find each other when I launch ES with the elasticsearch.bat file.

However, when I install them as a windows service via command line


service.bat install node1
service.bat start node1


service.bat install node2
service.bat start node2

the services start up fine and I can see the node (using elastichead chrome extension).

But the nodes do not join the cluster

Question is - are there any additional settings I need to add/tweak in order for nodes running as a service to communicate?

Thanks for any and all help offered!
