Playing with the Network
IPFS is all about networking! Included are a useful set of commands to aid in observing the network.
See who you’re directly connected to:
ipfs swarm peers
Manually connect to a specific peer. If the peer below doesn’t work, choose one from the output of
ipfs swarm peers.
ipfs swarm connect /ip4/126.96.36.199/tcp/4001/ipfs/QmSoLnSGccFuZQJzRadHn95W2CrSFmZuTdDWP8HXaHca9z
Search for a given peer on the network:
