# Connecting Peers

First things first, let's join the Lightning Network! Connections to other peers are established with PeerManager. You'll need to know the pubkey and address of another node that you want as a peer. Once the connection is established and the handshake is complete, PeerManager will show the peer's pubkey in its list of peers.
