Testing session summary

Community testers help test the networking of RNode. Testers were asked to file bugs in Jira to share their experiences. These are the themes that emerged:

  • Networking blockers for RNode operators using Docker - One user had success adding port forwarding to the node command in order to connect to bootstrap 
  • RNode hangs while writing files - Several users experienced this
  • Nat busting will be an issue for many operators with the current state of RNode
  • Users need support reviewing their configurations related to RNode operation
