Matrix-synapse?

Friends, I have a big problem, I’m trying to run my matrix-

synapse server behind Whonix gateway but it’s not working. i

tried everything I could think and even find on the forum, I

have no idea if I missed something.

The matrix-synapse server uses port 8008 and it’s working fine,

I can login, register new users, etc but the problem is, I

can’t reach it over tor when I change the network to whonix (and then uses my onion domain).

Worth remember that i know it’s possible to run matrix behind

tor because i currently have a server running it on centos but

this is direct INTERNET > CENTOS WITH TOR AND MATRIX IN SAME

MACHINE. I want include Whonix-gateway cuz it’s gonna give me

more flexibility to manage the server but I don’t know what I’m

doing wrong. Anybody can help me?

Setup is:

Whonix-gateway 14
Centos7

Running on virtualbox.

Since your are not using Whonix-WS, Then you should figure it out with ports.

its hard to test that, but maybe guys here will help you if they know anything about Centos.

If it worked with “regular Tor” installed on the same machine but not behind a Whonix Gateway, then most probably it wasn’t Torrified properly to begin with. I will try to find documentation on how to configure it properly with Tor and post it.

Update on the situation. I get, the problem was simple and the problem was on Centos. With nmtui I noticed that the “adapter” for whonix-gateway was off. Turned on and worked.

Just if somebody is having the same issue then me, on firewall i opened the port 8008

Open port as per which instructions?

This can go very wrong if opening clearnet ports.

Well I think so. Can I use:

EXTERNAL_OPEN_PORTS+=" 80 "

More then once? Ex:

EXTERNAL_OPEN_PORTS+=" 2235 "
EXTERNAL_OPEN_PORTS+=" 3340 "

Can be used more than once, syntax wise, however, non-anonymous! Read https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Ports!
