How do I federate with different Lemmy instances?

I created a test instance https://lemmy.fediverse.town and I’d like to federate with https://lemmy.ml/c/fediversefutures but I can’t find a way to do it.

PS: I added lemmy.ml in the config file, but it still doesn’t work.

  # settings related to activitypub federation
  federation: {
    # whether to enable activitypub federation.
    enabled: true
    # Allows and blocks are described here:
    # https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/federation/administration.html#instance-allowlist-and-blocklist
    #
    # list of instances with which federation is allowed
    allowed_instances: ["lemmy.ml","instance2.tld"]

Did you try finding Fediverse Futures by typing the https://lemmy.ml/c/fediversefutures URL in the search bar? If the federation works, then it should show up and you can join from your own instance.

I tried that, but there are no search results.

Hmm, I have no experience with setting up an instance. Maybe Lemmy Support community has info on it, or otherwise maybe their project issue tracker. See: https://lemmy.ml/c/lemmy_support

Aparently it’s because Yunohst lemmy is not on the newest version. So I’ll be patient. :slight_smile:
