Quick Primer on addnode vs connect
Let's say for instance you use addnode=126.96.36.199
addnode will connect you to and tell you about the nodes connected to 188.8.131.52. In addition it will tellthe other nodes connected to it that you exist so they can connect to you.
connect will not do the above when you 'connect' to it.
It will only connect you to 184.108.40.206 and no one else
So if you're behind a firewall, or have other problems
finding nodes, add some using 'addnode'.
If you want to stay private, use 'connect' to only connect to "trusted" nodes.
If you run multiple nodes on a LAN, there's no need for
all of them to open lots of connections. Instead 'connect' them all to one node that is port forwarded and has lots of connections.
