A Storj-authored six-video series on setting up a storage node on the Storj network. Designed for Linux Debian using Docker.
By the end of the series, viewers will have a working auth token plus Docker installation; a generated and signed node identity; properly configured port forwarding; and an online storage node running on the network
- Installation guide with commands reference: https://documentation.storj.io/
- Request a token to join network: https://storj.io/sign-up-node-operator
Prerequisites: Comfort with using CLI.
Nice! This will be very helpful to new users!
One thing I didn’t notice in the videos that might be very helpful for people trying to validate that their port forwarding configuration is working correctly is to use a port testing tool like one of these:
Simply enter your IP address, or no-ip URL, and configured node port to test that your RUNNING node is reachable.
@ndragun thanks and great tip. Would you mind if I used you post as inspiration for a separate port forwarding thread? I know that its a stumbling block that can come up for folks getting started.
Or, would you have any interest in starting that new discussion yourself?
I think it would be quite useful to a lot of people!
