When booting a new node, it's required to give the node some hints how to discover the network. It needs at least a single witness to start discovery.
When you use any of the clients, by default they will discover the requested network by querying for a manifest.
The Attrace Project, hosts an up-to-date witness manifest for every network. It refreshes every 15 minutes.
This is the url pattern for the manifest:
If you prefer your run your own public node, or want to use a custom manifest, you can always pass in
--discovery-manifest=URL on all executables.
Every public node exposes the manifest on
If you don't want to use a manifest, you can also use
--seeds=host:port,,... to discover from specific hosts.
