Run a Fullnode

This section explains how to install a public fullnode to connect to the Aptos networks. See also the external resources offered by your fellow node operators.

Default connection to devnet

If you follow the default setup in this document, then your public fullnode will be connected to the Aptos devnet with a REST endpoint accessible on your computer at localhost:8080.

To connect to a different Aptos network, such as devnet or testnet, make sure you have the correct version of:

  • Docker image tag (e.g. devnet, testnet)
  • Source code branch (if you build the binary directly)
