All incoming peers are unreachable

Folks, is it normal that all incoming peers are unreachable?

The port numbers from these incoming peers look like dynamically opened ports as a result from an incoming connection to the respective hosts. I would expect the respective firewalls to deny access to those ports, but why would gLiveView display zero traffic and those peers to be “Unreachable”?

My understanding is, that the IP:Port of this node finds its way into the mainnet-topology of those peers and that is why this node has incoming connections from those peers.

What do you see in gLiveView for incoming peers?

do you use topology updater?

restart the cnode, aand let us know the staatus of the new IN peers.

Yes, the topology updater is running. I see Tx being processed BTW.

i guess atleast your own producer should be reachable. i only have 3 incoming now and 1 is unreachable. had up to 7 yesterday i think. 3 or 4 where unreachable then

  1. for which node you speak?’
    as you you have many OUT, it is a relay.
    thats why you have also topology updater.

pleasse restart the cnode.

Here you go: … “it is not uncommon to see many unreachable peers”

In fact, it would be a security issue on their end, if they were reachable :wink:

exactly, i was discussing about this topic with another SPO, and we believe is only ICMP test and nothing more.
when the nodes need to communicate for the blockchain, i believe it will work properly based on open port for the service.
