Thank you for the response, and my apologies for taking so long in responding. I wanted to check things over again before coming back with more logs and just found the time.
I'm glad I did because it's now working. It ended up being my iptables rules. I was allowing port 50000 in my output chain, but not my input chain. So it could send out the link to the other node, but couldn't accept the inbound link from it.
