I come back to you after some tests which I need to continue them to have a good general idea.
I wanted to come back to you for something more specific about this bootstrapping problem.
None of you have pointed out or reacted to one of my previous post.
The line where I got “server connection refused” and which I continue to get.
I would really want to clarify the situation about that to move forward with the problem. Don’t hesitate to correct me if one of you have already reacted on this.
By the way, I’m on version 0.3.1.8 for the moment.
From my humble position, I can say with pretty much confidence that nothing is magical in computer science. So any error message have been programmed before. This error message is pretty clear and must have been provisioned in very precised events in the code.
So first, where this message is coming from? Is there a if somewhere in the script of whonix where it is stated?
Second, does someone know exactly why a node from Tor would launch such a signal? Since this error message is always linked to an address ip^which is not mine, which is not from my network or anything related to me.
So why am I asking that? Because after a few weeks of not using whonix in qubesos because of this problem, I 've tried it and put it up to date and for some hours it has worked more or less in a normal way and then suddenly it stopped working. That does tell me that there is actually no really incompatibilities between my setup or equipment with the tor nodes but for what ever reason, the Tor Nodes are communicating something about me, like a signature or something else and banned me from using it. Because if not, this message would not have been created and if those were simply gateways where you want to do whatever you want with any equipment whatsoever, this message would have no reasons to exists and be present in some code somewhere.
So please someone, answer to those precise questions and be as specific as you can.
