In Part I of this tutorial we learnt how to install and deploy Soketi to our Laravel Forge servers. Currently, Soketi is accessible over our server's IP address, behind port 6001.

Linux ships with a useful command called `du` (Disk Usage), which is used to find the size of files and directories. When provisioning your server, Forge installs `ncdu` which is an advanced version of `du` that allows you to easily navigate your directories via an ncurses interface. This makes it much quicker to identify large files and directories.
Soketi is a simple, fast and resilient open-source WebSockets server written in Typescript. It's fully compatible with the Pusher v7 protocol which makes it a great replacement to Pusher when using Laravel Echo.
