Jump to: navigation, search

The Dtella Dynamic Configuration is a public entry point to the network where a new node can find existing nodes as well as some basic configuration for the network. The configuration is stored in one of the following supported locations:

  1. BIND DNS Server
  2. yi.org DNS Server
  3. Google Spreadsheet (Gdata)

It stores the following information:

  1. IP Cache - An encrypted list of good nodes your client can connect to
  2. Minshare - The minimum share size for a client to join and download from the network
  3. Version - The required version, current version, and download location for your instance.
  4. PK Hash - A hash of the public key used for digitally signing messages from the Bridge or other administrative source.

Here is an example of a DNS dynamic configuration entry:
