Hi @JarenL you’re welcome. You don’t have to have a local node running for message relaying (on port 30303). There are several public nodes like that you can add manually, like this one advertised by @gballet above
@sudhaaddagiri I don’t know of a way, unfortunately. If you save the keyPairs externally, you’d want to re-import them too. Whisper’s design currently encourages generating lots of ephemeral keyPairs frequently, maybe even once per use. So if a node restarts, you as the receiver would have to check, and re-request any needed data from a sender, using a new keyPair.
Can you tell us more about what you’re trying to do?
cryptogoth * Thomas Mullen (Gitter): great work. I was able to run your demo on my laptop locally. I saw whisper debug messages in the web console, but no WebRTC video.
I deployed your demo to netlify, but it depends on Whisper being accessed via wss://
Does anyone know how to run a Whisper server that accepts public wss requests?
