I recently updated Gateway and Workstation to 16.0.4 running out of Virtual Box. I had some connectivity issues and had to update usr/local/etc/torrc.d/50_user.conf
Now everything seems to work fine but I still can’t connect to Tor due to a Time Synchronization error. When I run systemcheck I get the following message:
[ERROR] [systemcheck] Time Synchronization Result:
systemcheck gave up waiting.
Time synchronization status: fail
sdwdate reports: Maximum allowed number of failures. Giving up.
Checking the sdwdate logs gives me some more info:
START: ### /usr/libexec/helper-scripts/onion-time-pre-script
__ Status: Subsequent run after boot.
__ Static Time Sanity Check: Within minimum time ‘Fri Feb 18 00:00:00 UTC 2022’ and expiration timestamp ‘Tue May 17 10:00:00 UTC 2033’, ok.
__ Tor reports: NOTICE BOOTSTRAP PROGRESS=100 TAG=done SUMMARY=“Done”
__ Tor circuit: established
__ Tor Consensus Time Sanity Check: Clock within consensus parameters consensus/valid-after 2022-11-28 14:00:00 and consensus/valid-until 2022-11-28 17:00:00.
__ Conclusion: Tor already reports circuit established.
__ ### END: ### Exiting with exit_code ‘0’ indicating ‘success’.
2022-11-28 14:59:21 - sdwdate - INFO - PREPARATION RESULT: SUCCESS.
But when the Onions are pulled in to establish the time, all URLs produce the same error message:
Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 111] Connection refused
Ultimately ending with the summary:
2022-11-28 14:59:22 - sdwdate - INFO - failed_urls: 9 allowed_failures: 7
2022-11-28 14:59:22 - sdwdate - ERROR - Maximum allowed number of failures. Giving up.
2022-11-28 14:59:22 - sdwdate - INFO - Sleeping for 90 minutes, ok.
I’ve tried restarting sdwdate, restarting network and restarting Tor via Gateway and Workstation. I’ve also tried setting the time/date manually but this didn’t fix anything. Can someone tell me where I’m going wrong?
