Operators Overview

Operators who wish to run node infrastructure on a Casper network, either as a standalone private network, or as part of the public network should explore this section.

Prior knowledge of Unix-based operating systems and proficiency with systemd and bash scripting are recommended. If you are unfamiliar with systemd, the Arch Linux page on systemd is a good introduction.

Operators should know the hardware requirements before running a node.

Also, the network requirements specify how to open ports and modify the network firewall to which the node is connected. This step is necessary to allow incoming connections, enabling communication among nodes.

Review the node's configuration first. Then, you can follow the node installation instructions.
