UPNP support for vite node



  • Hi guys,
    I setup a full node in my VirtialBox, but it seems unstable sometime, not sure if it's related to NAT issue.
    My setup:
    Internet Modem - AP - Laptop - VM(hosting a full node).

    I checked the connections using netstat -anlp |grep "8483|8484", i saw only my VM connecting other node, no incoming connecting connected to my VM port 8483|8484.
    Would like to know:
    1, the impact for such setup as no other node could connect to my VM
    2, what will it help if enable upnp to pass through the NAT.

    Thx,
    JZ

    Normally, this wouldn't be a big problem as long as your node has connected to a bunch of peers - it could be worse if peers are few. Is there a firewall? If so you should configure to expose the ports.
    You can configure the NAT manually on your VM.
