how to tell my IPFS , cut contact with the world and just serve the local machine using a local dht and whatever is available on the local machine .
would it do just that if I unplug the internet cable ? what if I want to do that while connected to the internet without the need to edit the firewall ?
the main reason my IPFS is not always running in the background is that as I run it , it starts to use my system to serve the IPFS network without giving me a chance to just serve myself .
it makes my system heavy to the point I have to stop it to be able to use my system , I want to be able to run the IPFS in the background to serve files only to myself , without serving the IPFS network , I think it’s fair to have Filecoin miners do that job (serving the network) instead of forcing all the IPFS users to serve the IPFS network .
