Whonix and bridges problem

Tor works using bridges. My Windows config:

Bridge meek 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:
And set config on Whonix-Gateway: DisableNetwork 0 UseBridges 1 Bridge obfs3 FDC7A....(it's too long to retype)
and receive an error:

 [INFO] [whonixcheck] Tor Bootstrap Result: Bootstraping for x seconds. 5 % done. Tor Circuit: not established. Tor reports: WARN BOOTSTRAP PROGRESS=5 TAG=conn_dir SUMMARY="Connection to directory server" WARNING="Can't connect to bridge" REASON=PT_MISSING COUNT=3 RECOMMENDATION=warn

Can anyone help?

Support for such transports is not yet supported. Ticket:

I did like said here Configure (Private) (Obfuscated) Tor Bridges
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 (How can we help? | Tor Project | Support). 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 ⚓ T118 make TBB usable as "system Tor", so latest pluggable transports and the tor-launcher graphical user interface can be used in Whonix 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:
