Atypical full node connections

There’s been something going on at the nodes for the last few days.
For the last two years, my number of peers has usually been 8.
Now it ranges between 14 and 40.
I have not installed the new release at this time.
I didn’t “fiddle” with yaml.
It may be just a whim of my node, or not…
Have any of you noticed a similar situation?

Is your port 8444 open now for some reason?

Hi Max,
router and computer says it is …closed.
Since yesterday, however, he has been losing another one every few hours.
I’m currently 14.


Today, only 12.
