Adding peers

Adding Peers

To connect with your peers you may open port 4001 to the selected IPs that you wish to communicate with or open the port to all addresses.
Bootstrap Peers | Documentation
Bootstrap peers default to IPFS nodes provided by the core development team. They are scattered across the world. These peers are what your IPFS node will initially monitor upon startup. You may add our mainnet and kylin testnet IPFS nodes with the following commands:
1
# kylin
2
​

ipfs bootstrap add /ip4/52.70.167.190/tcp/4001/ipfs/QmZ5gLTZwvfD5DkbbaFFX4YJCi7f4C5oQAgq8qpjL8S1ur

ipfs bootstrap add /ip4/34.224.152.33/tcp/4001/ipfs/QmcCX4b3EF3eXaDe5dgxTL9mXbyci4FwcJAjWqpub5vCXM

Swarm Peers | Documentation
Swarm peers are addresses that the local daemon will listen on for connections from other IPFS peers. They are what your IPFS node will look to first when requesting a file that is not cached locally. Both your node as well as the node you are trying to connect to must run the following commands:
1
# kylin
2
​
3
ipfs swarm connect /ip4/52.70.167.190/tcp/4001/ipfs/QmZ5gLTZwvfD5DkbbaFFX4YJCi7f4C5oQAgq8qpjL8S1ur
4
ipfs swarm connect /ip4/34.224.152.33/tcp/4001/ipfs/QmcCX4b3EF3eXaDe5dgxTL9mXbyci4FwcJAjWqpub5vCXM
