I am using IPFS
My goal is to connect two peers in order to prevent IPFS peer to halt on reading an IPFS-hash from the shared peer. In order to achieve it, I am using
ipfs swarm connect to connect peer-A to peer-B, where peer-B can access ipfs-file on peer-A.
My question is related to:
ipfs swarm connect /ip4/x.x.x.x/tcp/4003/ipfs/QmXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
When I try to connect my laptop to another IPFS-peer, I face with following error:
But when I try on an Amazon AWS where all the ports are open, it works, hence swarm connect ended as success.
[Q] In order to make
ipfs swarm connect work should API and Gateway port should be open? or should I do something else?
For example should: port 5001 and 8080 be open no matter what?
"API": "/ip4/127.0.0.1/tcp/5001", "Gateway": "/ip4/127.0.0.1/tcp/8080",
