Hey everyone, I've rented a new VPS (5$/4€) and setup a new public node for us.
Setup took around 2 days, (importing RAW blockchain and syncing up) but the node is running now for everyone to connect.
monerod.conf is as below:
max-log-file-size=0 # Prevent monerod from managing the log files; we want logrotate to take care of that
# P2P full node
p2p-bind-ip=0.0.0.0 # Bind to all interfaces (the default)
p2p-bind-port=18080 # Bind to default port
# RPC open node
rpc-bind-ip=0.0.0.0 # Bind to all interfaces
rpc-bind-port=18081 # Bind on default port
confirm-external-bind=1 # Open node (confirm)
restricted-rpc=1 # Prevent unsafe RPC calls
no-igd=1 # Disable UPnP port mapping
# Slow but reliable db writes
# Emergency checkpoints set by MoneroPulse operators will be enforced to workaround potential consensus bugs
# Check https://monerodocs.org/infrastructure/monero-pulse/ for explanation and trade-offs
out-peers=64 # This will enable much faster sync and tx awareness; the default 8 is suboptimal nowadays
in-peers=1024 # The default is unlimited; we prefer to put a cap on this
limit-rate-up=1048576 # 1048576 kB/s == 1GB/s; a raise from default 2048 kB/s; contribute more to p2p network
limit-rate-down=1048576 # 1048576 kB/s == 1GB/s; a raise from default 8192 kB/s; allow for faster initial sync
I found that the attacker still crashes my node (0.17.1.8) every few hours, so I implemented the ban list again. Hope that gets fixed soon 🙂
Now looking for a monitoring tool, as the VPS provider does not give much info about traffic and CPU/Mem usage.
