I have 8 active channels - working!
My node does not display public ID... Is it because of firewall stealth mode?
damnit typo... should be "....and your config will be outdated"
Yes, you need to port forward 9735 to your specific computer running lnd. The router is not going to guess which computer connected to it should handle lightning network traffic.
externalip=127.0.0.1 is invalid. The simplest way to find your external ip is search for "what is my ip" at google.com or visit https://www.whatismyip.com. Note that if you don't have a static ip address then your ip address can change at any time and your config will be updated.
Also note that a network explorer may not have a complete view of the entire lightning network - it may not see your node right away.
I had to wait a week until mine showed up - I’d wait a while yet
mine is showing up. did nothing special. no port forwarding. no external ip stuff.
Make the external IP to be your real address
