Yes, thank you, bridges work in Anon Connection Wizard. But in the Tor Control panel, bridges don’t work.
Could you please compare the generated configuration file ACW vs TCP? File:
The Tor Control panel now does not start at all.
Try start from command line.
sudo --set-home tor-control-panel
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to ‘/tmp/runtime-root’
QLayout: Attempting to add QLayout “” to QFrame “”, which already has a layout
Please post error message here, if any.
So that file looks the same for ACW versus TCP?
Or was there a difference ACW versus TCP?
I don’t understand what exactly I should compare.
How specifically to compare ACW with TCP?
I don’t even know what ACW is.
ACW - Anon Connection Wizard
TCP - Tor Control Panel
- create a config file using TCP
- create a config file using ACW
- compare or post them both there
redact private information
Thanks for the report.
This is happening because…
You are using the wrong format. You are using:
That’s a plain bridge. Not using any pluggable transport such as obfs4. You probably need an obfs4 bridge.
Also please note what that file is saying:
# This file is generated by and should ONLY be used by anon-connection-wizard. # User configuration should go to /usr/local/etc/torrc.d/50_user.conf, not here. Because: # 1. This file can be easily overwritten by anon-connection-wizard. # 2. Even a single character change in this file may cause error. # However, deleting this file will be fine since a new plain file will be generated the next time you run anon-connection-wizard.
I fixed that bug but it doesn’t really matter.
I recommend to either use ACW or the command line.
“Forget” about TCP. It’s not really needed.
But obfs4 seems to be blocked in our country.
There is a connection.
# Do not edit this file!# Please add modifications to the following file inste - Pastebin.com - TCP has been used wrong. A proxy has been configured instead a bridge. A bridge is not considered a proxy in TCP / ACW. A bridge is not considered a proxy in context of Tor. Do not use proxy settings unless you want to.
But # This file is generated by and should ONLY be used by anon-connection-wizard. - Pastebin.com uses a “plain” bridge. With means no pluggable transport at all. These are the most easy to block bridges. I find it highly unlikely that obfs4 bridges are blocked but plain bridges are functional.
# This file is generated by and should ONLY be used by anon-connection-wizard. - Pastebin.com is using a plain bridge.
I didn’t actually use a proxy. I set up a bridge in TCP, not a proxy.
Please post screenshots or a video or detailed description which buttons you pressed in TCP in which order.
Sorry it was my mistake. I just didn’t understand the program. Now everything works as it should.
I inserted the bridge into the proxy on the first page. I’m still learning, I’m new.
I think this information should be added to the wiki.
In the top button I chose “Custom bridges”.
And I thought the bottom button was the bridge setting.
