Running a full node?
« on: October 27, 2014, 04:43:03 PM »
I guess hunterocin is the same as bitcoin, where if you dont have a certain amount of connections, you are a net drain on the network?

What setting can we change to make sure we are supporting the network fully?

To be honest, I guess that to fully answer this question, you need to have experience with how real P2P networks behave with respect to forwarding latency, graph structure and all that - which I don't.  My opinion is that each full node with more than just one or two connections should be beneficial, as it increases the network's resistance to being split / manipulated by hostile nodes.

If you have the necessary "power", just run a node that accepts incoming connections (no proxy / firewall) and with a high number of accepted connections (maxconnections=20, 50, 100, ...).
