What public ports does Scuttlebot use?
I know that scuttlebott is the client that connects my computer to others within this grand scuttleverse, but what ports does it need to make these connections?
Scuttlebot uses the ports 8008 and 8989.
- 8008 is the port scuttlebot uses for gossip (reading and replicating your feed and the feed of your friends)
- 8989 is the port used for for websockets and hosting blobs (blobs are the files you can attach to your messages, like the images you add to your sweet posts.)
