TTHub offers two types of open-access servers in every available location:
- Public (port 10443, encrypted): Users can see and interact with other users in all channels. Channel creation is enabled, and some default channels are available.
- Anonymous (port 10440, encrypted): Users are only able to interact with each other within the same channel. By creating a channel with a password, you will prevent other users from knowing you're logged in. Only those with the password can see and join you, though everyone can see the list of channels.
How to Connect
First, pick a location and associated domain name from the locations page. For this example, I'll use TTHub.ca (Canada).
Next, set up your client to connect to this domain (TTHub.ca) on port 10443 for the public server, or 10440 for anonymous. Check the encryption checkbox.
If both ports are set correctly and the encryption box is checked, you should be able to log into any of these servers with no username or password.
Meeting on the Anonymous Server
Here are some tips for successfully connecting with others on the anonymous server:
- If you're using a desktop computer, enter the channel name and password when connecting, rather than logging in and creating it. This will make sure that you can reconnect in future with the same channel info.
- You can also generate a .tt file from this dialog, send that file to others, and have them join in a single click.
- If you pass along the info manually, the capitalization for both the channel name and password need to match exactly.
