Full node port forwarding
« on: August 22, 2014, 02:49:50 PM »

I only have 8 connections to the network, I'm assuming I need to set up port forwarding.

What port does the BitShares-X client use?

use --max-connections argument if you want more peers

The P2P code tries to use UPNP, but we have not yet made it robust enough to handle all port-forwarding cases.   The port number is 1776 if you want to try it.

That worked.  Forwarded port 1776 and now I have 18 network connections.

I guess BitShares-X works like Bitcoin?  If you only have 8 connections you are only downloading and not seeding?
