Connected meaning

Hi, on the official Chia app in Windows, there is a box that says Connected(5). What does that mean? Sometimes it says Connected(1) as well. When I look at my connections to other nodes and wallets, it’s always greater than the number that’s in the box so I’m confused….Thanks!

The CONNECTED box at the top of the window shows the number of nodes that your wallet is connected to. If you are running a full node which is in sync then your wallet will only remain connected to your local node.
The Connections list on the Full Node window shows nodes that your full node is connected to. There will usually be 8 to 20.
