I’m running into a strange issue that someone here with a Windows machine might be able to help me with.
When I run
ipfs id on my Windows machine, the Addresses section only ever contains the public udp address
/ip4/xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/udp/50603/quic/p2p/xxxxxxxxx... but never the tcp equivalent, which is recommended in the docs when using
ipfs swarm connect. With that in mind, I have two questions:
- Is this just my machine? Can anybody with a Windows machine test out the
ipfs idcommand and let me know if the public tcp address is present? I am running Windows in a Virtual Box so I’m worried that might be the underlying issue.
- If this is normal for Windows machines, is it then ok to pass the udp port address when using
ipfs swarm connectinstead of the tcp port? Are there any issues that come along with passing the udp address instead of tcp?
Any help with this would be much appreciated!
