I just set up c-lightning on mainnet and I'd like to open a channel but I can't find a list of node ids and ip addresses. Does anyone know where I can find this?
Here's a site with all the nodes on mainnet https://1ml.com
From LN specifications:
First, before any actual data transfer, both nodes participate in an authenticated key agreement handshake...
and then inside the Authenticated Key Agreement Handshake:
the initiator must know the identity public key of the responder...
I am developer of https://lightblock.me It's a tool which lets you search for nodes which you wish to connect to, take the URI of the node you want to connect and use it with "connect" command.
