Problem with connect to dynamic IPSee original GitHub issue
Hello, i tested your aplication and saw what in tab “All nodes” don`t showed “IP”
Also i can`t connect to my friend with dynamic ip, for what reason is this and whether there will ever be such an opportunity?

this does not solve the problem. We need to create a connection between two users with dynamic ip.
example : Alisa : start eclair on PC with 192.168.1.3 gateway : 188.8.131.52 - it is not global ip, it is first gateway server network mask : 255.255.255.0 public ip 184.108.40.206
so network route : 192.168.1.3 >> 220.127.116.11 >> … >> 18.104.22.168
Bob : start eclair on PC with 192.168.1.1
gateway : 22.214.171.124 - it is not global ip, it is first gateway server network mask : 255.255.255.0 public ip 126.96.36.199
network route : 192.168.1.1 >> 188.8.131.52 >> … >> 184.108.40.206
Alice tries to open the channel by using the entry:
pubKey@220.127.116.11:9735 but the channel is not created because the eclair is physically located elsewhere.
The same problem is with Bob.
How to solve this problem?
This is a critical problem. it urgently needs to be solved because there is a need to create channels without static ip.
Alright, so this is not related to dynamic ips.
You need to configure Bob’s router, so that it forwards connections on port 9735 to 192.168.1.1:9735. Aka NAT. It is very similar to what’s needed for bitcoin core (see documentation), except that it is port 9735 instead of 8333.
Note that if you are having trouble doing that, you should probably not be trying to run an alpha-version software like Eclair.
