New instance connecting with other relays?


#1

Hi,

I made a new mastodon instance couple of days and I’m trying to figure out how can I federate with other relays. I have added the following relay URLs:
https://relay.mastodon.host/inbox
https://relay.joinmastodon.org/inbox

Both with status: Waiting for relay's approval

Happy for any suggestion or help.

  1. those are both the same relay
  2. i think that relay is down at the moment. see Where are the relays? for more info

Sorry I meant this (default) relay: https://relay.joinmastodon.org/inbox.

joinmastodon is no longer running a relay. I don’t know what the status of @hugogameiro’s relay is whoops, i was confusing mastodon.host and masto.host. I meant to tag gled, who doesn’t appear to have an account on here

I don’t have any Relay running and don’t plan having one anytime soon.

Are there any relays up and running?
What are the requirements for running a relay?

BTW, all other mastodon instances how do they federated with each other?

once some user from your server start to follow a next server, it’s starts federating with this one, and this all over the fediverse
