I have 2 computers with the following situation:
1. a personal desktop running BTS wallet 24/7, but it doesn't have a public IP
2. a VPS also running BTS wallet 24/7, but does not want to revel its IP since it is running other servces.

but I do want to help others get blocks synced ASAP, and I found the slowliness is one of the major reasons that would scare away newbies first time using BTS wallet. So I wonder if there is any way that I can be a seed node without public IP/IP revealed?

By definition seed nodes are the boxes that the client knows about at the beginning. Their IP addresses are listed in client source code.

Thanks.  So is there any other way to help syncing? Or I can only ask newbies to be patient?
