Launchpad Bug:


In How To Start Tahoe-LAFS, there is the following:

If your node is behind a firewall or NAT device and want other clients to connect to it then you'll need to open a port in your firewall. To do that you'll need to know which port tahoe is listening on as, by default, it listens on an arbitrary port number.

"arbitrary port number" doesn't explain much here. Zooko explained that tahoe picks a random port number, and then stores it in the client.port file. There is no harm in saying this explicitly, like so:

To do that you'll need to know which port tahoe is listening on. If you haven't already set a port number, tahoe picks a random port to listen on (and remembers this number in the client.port file).
