Newbie question: public and private channels

Hi there,

I was wondering - if I add a secondary, encrypted channel, and get nodes on a mesh that do not join this channel, will these nodes still forward the secondary channel’s traffic to other nodes?

Best,

Francis

Great question. I’m not 100% sure but I think the answer is yes.

@Geeksville is the best person to confirm this as he wrote the code for it.

So long as the primary channel is the same for all nodes on the mesh, nodes with different secondary channels will still forward other channels messages. It’s one of the reasons it’s a good idea to leave the primary channel set to the default and just add secondary channels.
