In both Whonix Wiki and torrc.example file, it suggests:
ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec /usr/bin/obfs4proxy managed
@JasonJAyalaP asked in T684:
should obfs4 have the "managed" line?
According to Tor manual:
ClientTransportPlugin transport exec path-to-binary [options]
the Tor client launches the pluggable transport proxy executable in path-to-binary using options as its command-line options, and forwards its traffic to it.
However, I did not find much documentation on why
managed mode was needed on
man obsf4proxy or the Internet.
Could anyone help me with the question please? I am very curious, too.
