Please visit our IRC channel to find peers that are geographically close to you.

What are public peers?

Nodes that have public peering credentials. Since the public peers carry a heavy burden, your connection will be more stable if you find other people to peer with privately.

'Public Peering' is a work-around for the fact that Hyperboria and Cjdns are early in development and have a small user base. In the future, peering should work similar to gpg key exchanging such that connections are made personally by people who trust each other.

Read this first

  • You should trust those whom you peer with.
  • While you can technically add as many as 255 peers, more is not better. The software likes to run with about 3 peers and will work fine even if only 1 of them is functioning. ~ CJD
    • This does not include those connecting to you.
  • Although older nodes use 'null' as their public password, it is recommended that you create a more complicated/non-default password for public accounts.
  • Peers should be as geographically-local as possible.
