Question regarding node configuration

Hello, I've managed to put together some old hardware with the purpose of running a node, following [Seth's guide](https://sethforprivacy.com/guides/run-a-monero-node-advanced/) Hardware: **CPU: Pentium Dual Core E5200 @ 2.50Ghz** **RAM: 1.5 G DDR2 800Mhz** **Storage: SSD240 Gb** ​ The initial sync took me quite some time, after getting a corrupted blockchain three times at @ 50-70% synced, it worked with some tweaks to monerod config file: **block-sync-size=2** **db-sync-mode=safe:sync:62500000bytes** ​ I want to share my node p2p for others to sync theirs, and not allow wallets/miners to use my node. I have doubts about my p2p and rpc configuration, port 18080 is forwarded on router, but when checking if open on [portchecker](https://portchecker.co/), it says is closed. I've readed [monerodocs](https://monerodocs.org/interacting/monerod-reference/)'s references but I can't manage to properly understand all the variables. Log file looks OK, only shows a warning: *WARNING: no two valid DNS TXT records were recieved* I have this lines (Guide's default for public restricted RPC) on the monerod config file, but i don't know if it's working properly: **# P2P configuration** p2p-bind-ip=[0.0.0.0](https://0.0.0.0) p2p-bind-port=18080 \#p2p-external-port 18080 ***# Should I add this line?*** **# RPC configuration** public-node=1 ***# Shouldn't this be =0?*** rpc-restricted-bind-ip=[0.0.0.0](https://0.0.0.0) rpc-restricted-bind-port=18089 confirm-external-bind=1 ***# Shouldn't this be also =0?*** no-igd=1 \#restricted-rpc=1 ***# Should I add this line?*** **# ZMQ configuration** no-zmq=1 **# Block known-malicious nodes from a DNSBL** enable-dns-blocklist=1 ​ Any help appreciated, Greetings
