To support Ethereum, I would like to run a Full node. My Geth seems to be running correctly :
I see it on ethernodes.org
net.listening returns TRUE
net.peerCount returns a positive number
What's bothering me is that I haven't opened the 30303/30304 firewall ports... so I'm wondering if I'm really contributing to the network. I know I have to open the ports, but my question is: When I'll open them, how can I make sure that my full node is correctly configured and contributes to the network? What feedback can I have in the console that it's working?
To compare with Bitcoin, I'm running a full Bitcoin core node too, and I know I'm contributing because I have a debug info showing me "Number of connections In / Out". If "In" is 0, this means my firewall is not configured correctly.
Any other comments on how to check the Full Ethereum node is running and contributing correctly?
If you help me, you will have a new 7/7 24/24 node in the network :)
