I am trying to get some information about the (other) nodes that are connected to my parachain node.

I can see how many nodes are connected ( in telemetry and polkadotjs apps), but how can I find their network identities? Can I query this information via RPC or polkadot js? If so how?

You can get that information from the RPC call system.peers().

  • Should I also note that port 9933 should be open on the ui node to execute this action?

    :9944 for websockets. The hosted apps UI cannot make connections to ws:// endpoints, so if using that you would need to place it behind a nginx proxy with a certificate.
