Configure your optional settings
The configuration window may be opened by right clicking on the Off System logo in your computer's tray and selecting
configurationfrom the menu.
Peers are predominantly discovered arbitrarily as a result of searches for content. The bootstrap section of the configuration window determines the peers hat your node will attempt to make connections with upon start up and during maintenance. Having no bootstrap peers will inhibit a node from making connections when searching for content.
- 1.Obtain the
locatorof the Peer you wish to bootstrap
- 2.Paste the
locatortext into the text field labeled
- 3.Click the
- 1.Find the row with the
Node IDof the desired peer in the table

This feature will upon restart attempt a best effort restoration of your node's most recent connections before it went offline.
- 1.Check the checkbox labeled
Bootstrap to last known connections
The network section of the configuration defines how your node will make connections to other peers as well as http clients. Your may need to configure your router or firewall to allow port forwarding for the ports listed in this configuration. By default peer connections are received on port
8200and http clients are received on
Defines the TCP port peer connections will be received on
Defines how many time a node will attempt to reserve a port before failure
Defines the port that the http server will accept connections on
Defines how long a connection can sit idle before failure occurs
Use Internal IP for Connections
Defines whether to use internal network ip's only to define the node's peer location. This option may prevent connections to nodes outside your internal network
The storage section of the configuration defines the size and location parameters of each of the node's block caches. There are three type of blocks in the system block, mini, and nano. Files that are over 128kb stored in the block cache. Files between 128kb and 1000b are store in the mini cache. Files less than 1000b are stored in the nano cache. You may want to size the storage of each cache based upon your usage of the node. Block Cache's are not free space and the network will try to fill or empty themselves based upon network usage and the size limitations created by their node's installers.
