A new application can't connect to network

I installed a new application in whonix workstation, but it couldn’t connect to network. Should I change proxy settings to 9101 ?

Hi Anony

This is not a lot to go on. Could you please provide more information.

Tried to install Telegram but it cannot connect to network.
All other network is working. I don’t know what more information I can provide.

Hi Ayony

Short answer: You are not likely to connect with Telegram over Tor

Amazon and Google have pulled the plug on Domain Fronting which is used by pluggable transports such as meek, meek_lite... and software such as Telegram and Signal. The only company to currently provide domain fronting is Microsoft ( Azure cloud) is on its way to being shutdown as well, if it hasn’t already.


Telegram over Tor is insecure so you should find an alternate messaging app.

What about other application that I will install? It will connect over Tor or I need to change proxy settings ?

Hi Ayony

Generally speaking, new applications that are installed should connect over Tor without changing proxy setting.
