Do you have to do anything special to create a bootnode on Parity? I was just using the Parity enodes in a private genesis file.
I guess I have to open port 30301?

To run a bootnode, you should
--max-peersto something sensible like
30303is open (or whatever your node's network port is)
Other than that, that's it. Bootnodes are just normal nodes. It's recommended to have decent hardware though, especially for larger networks.
