Basic usage of conductors

Hello, I was wondering if there’s any way to run two instances of my app in the same machine and make them interact with each other? in the same way they would if they were in different machines.

I’m using hc run for development, and I want to know if I can still use it instead of the actual conductor.

I think you will still need to use the development conductor. For more info check out this link: https://developer.holochain.org/guide/0.0.29-alpha2/hc_configuring_networking.html

Can you check this thread to see if the proposed/interim solution works for you?
