Whonix and bridges problem

Tor works using bridges. My Windows config:

Bridge meek 0.0.2.0:1 url=https://meek-reflect.appspot.com/ front=www.google.com DataDirectory C:\Users\...\Desktop\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor DirReqStatistics 0 GeoIPFile C:\Users\...\Desktop\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\geoip GeoIPv6File C:\Users\...\Desktop\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\geoip6 UseBridges 1
I used:
https://bridges.torproject.org/bridges?transport=obfs3
And set config on Whonix-Gateway: DisableNetwork 0 UseBridges 1 Bridge obfs3 54.80.31.102:40872 FDC7A....(it's too long to retype)
and receive an error:

Can anyone help?

Support for such transports is not yet supported. Ticket:
https://phabricator.whonix.org/T118

What do you mean saying support is not supported? No one would help me?

meek (from your config above) is a transport. A Tor pluggable transport (https://www.torproject.org/docs/pluggable-transports.html.en). Stuff that works on the host using TBB, doesn’t necessarily work with Whonix (using “system Tor”) out of the box. The only transports bridges that are documented and simple to use with Whonix for now are ordinary bridges and obfs3 bridges.

How to use most of these fancy new great transports in Whonix [or Debian, system Tor] is still undocumented. I am not saying it’s impossible, but figuring out needs a developers mindset.

The link to https://phabricator.whonix.org/T118 is the mid term plan on how to allow system Tor (Whonix) users to use almost all pluggable transports the TBB users can use.

Thank you for your reply. Now I’ve learnt somehing :slight_smile:
