Can I instruct IPFS to connect to more peers?

Can I make IPFS connect to more peers, either by:

  • Increasing the peer limit or scan interval with some environmental variable or config option?
  • Running a command to search for more?
  • Connecting/downloading numerous files?
  • Any other way?
