RetroShare 0.6.0 has built in Tor Hidden Service support.
Note that RetroShare is officially at version 0.5.5, so 0.6.0 is still a dev build.
Last year, before whonix gateway and whonix workstaion changed its IP address (to the 10.152.152.10 format) I was able to get this setup and working to reach other Tor Hidden Service peers on RetroShare 0.6. Now I no longer seem to be able to reach anyone (possibly not even get out of the Workstation network).
Based on the torrc.examples I tried:
HiddenServicePort 3399 10.152.152.11:3399
I reloaded the tor service and got the hostname and put it in RetroShare, as RetroShare instructs. I realize this might be a bug in the expected design in RetroShare’s code or design, but I am not sure how it all works and wonder if there is any way that Whonix might recommend getting RetroShare 0.6.0 working with the Whonix Gateway hosting the RetroShare Tor hidden service I would be happy.
I cannot seem to reach out to other Tor hidden Service Peers, nor can I be reached by my friends who are running Tor (client to hidden-server mode in RetroShare).
Which IP addresses should I try, and where should I try them at (torrc file, retroshare software, etc)? RetroShare 0.6.0 seems to lock the outgoing traffic to 127.0.0.1, so I am not sure if that will be reaching Whonix Gateway or not.
Any advice would be welcomed.
