Please note that the following example isn't purposed for production use. It was placed here to help describe the purpose of some of the settings

# novacoin.conf configuration file. Lines beginning with # are comments.

# Network-related settings:

# Run on the test network instead of the real novacoin network.
#testnet=0

# Connect via a socks4 proxy - default none
#proxy=127.0.0.1:9050
# Accepting incoming connections
#listen=1
# Enable UPnP negotiation with router/firewall to accept incoming connections
#upnp=1

##           Quick Primer on addnode vs connect             ##
## Let's say for instance you use addnode=193.23.181.148    ##
## addnode will connect you to and tell you about the nodes ##
## connected to 193.23.181.148. In addition it will tell    ##
##    the 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 193.23.181.148 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.                            ##
##       Thanks goes to [Noodle] on Freenode.               ##
