This repository contains peering information for publicly accessible nodes on the Yggdrasil network.
Note that not all peers in this repository are guaranteed to be online - check the Public Peers page instead to find peers that are online now.
In most cases, public peers should be accessible by adding the string provided
for each peer to the
Peers:  section of your
Peers: [ tcp://a.b.c.d:e tcp://d.c.b.a:e tcp://[a:b:c::d]:e tcp://[d:c:b::a]:e ]
How do I pick peers?
If you are new to the network then take a look at the Public Peers page to find public peers that are online.
Always try to pick peers that are as close to you geographically as possible, as this will keep the latency of the network down.
If you are using a home connection then you should avoid peering with any nodes that are far away, as you may end up carrying traffic for the rest of the network.
For normal usage, you probably only need 2 or 3 peers.
As of Yggdrasil v0.3.11, peering connections over TLS are now possible. This hides the peering connection inside a regular TLS session, which can help in some cases where firewalls or deep packet inspection may identify or block regular Yggdrasil peering traffic.
TLS public peers are identified by the prefix
tls:// instead of
Note that, due to the additional layer of encryption, performance via TLS peers
may be slightly worse than via regular
