A quickstart guide for getting Kovri up and running.
Kovri should randomly generate a new port to use on startup, but if you want to choose your own, you can go to kovri.conf and set any port between 9111 and 30777. See the User Guide in the documentation for more details.
Kovri can help keep you anonymous to a point, but it can't defend against user error. For this reason, we recommend a few opsec-related housekeeping things.
There's two types of tunnels, client and server. Client tunnels are used to connect to other services and server tunnels are used if you want to host your own services. To learn how to add or remove tunnels, read the User Guide for details.
Here you are. You're almost done. Now the only thing left to do is to run
cd build/ && ./kovri in your terminal. Once connected, it should take about 5 minutes to bootstrap into the network and start using services, so be patient. Remember to report any bugs if you run into any trouble. See? That wasn't so hard, was it? Have fun!
