Help for the network despite closed ports?

Does it help the general yacy network if I crawl websites but the ports in my router are closed? Unfortunately, I have no way of opening the ports, but I would still like to help the network.
Will the websites I crawl still be made available to the network? Even if the ports are closed?

hi, eisy, and welcome to the community!

yes, after crawling the sites, the keywords vs url records should be sent as “RWIs” to the other hosts. see: RFC: docs: Index distribution in YaCy
