One, do I need to update the topology files on the BP and Relay? The files are formatted differently than what I am used to. I did not see any instructions in the document to do so.
Secondly, Oracle Cloud using a private Ip subnet. I can only allow communication on the firewall at the private IP level or so it seems. I have allowed communication between the Relay and BP, but the 6000 port still shows closed when I use a port scanner, scanning the public IP. Do I need to port forward somehow?
I see outgoing connections on both the BP and Relay, but 0 incoming.
Valency is amount of open connections your relay should have in our case it is 1, because our relay should open just 1 connection toward BP. If you will have more relays, then you will need to add them under accessPoints and increase valency accordingly.
For BP with disabled p2p it should be something like that:
