Configure Tor Bridges


Could I please have a step-by-step guide on how to configure Tor Bridges for Bitsquare so that my Bitsquare could connect through them?

Thank you!

I believe that Bisq (new name :slight_smile: ) doesn’t support Tor bridges yet, it did in the past, but it had some issues. I don’t know if it would work, but you could try to proxy Bisq through your own tor connection. If you use debian based linux like Ubunutu then you could just run “apt-get install tor” to install tor then configure the /etc/tor/torrc file to setup bridges (add lines: “UseBridges 1” and “Bridge [transport] IP:ORPort [fingerprint]” with your bridge info and maybe you will need this line as well “ClientTransportPlugin obfs3 exec /usr/bin/obfsproxy --managed”, the last one I have no idea what it does) then run a program called “torify” with path to Bisq as an argument (“torify /opt/Bitsquare/Bitsquare”). Fingers crossed. :crossed_fingers:

Bridges did not help so we removed it. Meek/Obfusc4 is on the road map but not implemented.
