Magentum
Can someone here help me with a Whonix / VB question? #whonix is dead
whitanne
Magentum: what was your question
Magentum
I'm having trouble having Whonix recognise my USB devices -- I must be missing something painstakingly obvious, but I can't figure it out.
I'm trying to transfer from a Tails setup to a more secure system but this sole thing is hindering my ability to transfer my files. I have the USB controller enabled, but what more is needed?
whitanne
are you using the Whonix Workstation?
Magentum
Yes.
whitanne
is USB disabled in the virtual machine?
Magentum
That is at the bottom of the window correct?
& im just starting up WHonix, I ran into this problem last night and went to bed :p
whitanne
are you using virtualbox?
Magentum
Yes.
         

cacahuatl
Yes, using Oracle software will make you more secure ;)
whitanne
I believe the whonix workstation has USB disabled, I think you can reenable that in the settings of the virtual machine
Magentum
When I click the USB icon in the bottom of the VB it doesn't indicate any USB is attached :/
letsfindout
cacahuatl: well, virtualbox used to be free software...
Guest134
having issues reloading tor (globally not the browser)
systemctl start (even restart ) tor shows failed state
cacahuatl
journalctl -u tor
qbi
isis: does the bridges@ address don't work anymore?
I tried to send a mail yesterday, but never received a reply.
Also this user has problems: https://tor.stackexchange.com/q/7206/88
cacahuatl
find out why it's in a failed state from journalctl, if you're not sure paste the output onto paste.debian.net
Guest134
cacahuatl, not sure what to look for the output > http://ur1.ca/n4j9a
looks as tho its saying its still running but i see no evidence elsewhere that is true
missed the past.debian hope paste.fedoraproject works
cacahuatl
yeah but please not through url shorteners, expanded it is: http://paste.fedoraproject.org/244421/12792143/
Guest134
fair enough noted
cacahuatl
looks like you've got a tor pid in /var/run/tor or wherever it stores it
that's from an old process that's no longer around and it both can't kill it and thinks it's already running?
Guest134
there indeed is a tor.pid there safe to sudo rm /var/run/tor/tor.pid and retry?
cacahuatl
Yeah, should be
Guest134
that worked ...thanks but what could/would cause that
cacahuatl
unexpected shutdown, process crashed, server rebooted, power less?
*loss
Guest134
process crash most likely none of the others even close to happening
not today at least
cacahuatl
or OOMKill, if the server was under heavy load. Lots of reasons things go derp.
Guest134
indeed
cacahuatl
If you can find a coredump or something, it might be worth submitting the reason it crashed (if it's not already been) to trac.torproject.org, also have a look through older journalctl or whatever logs you have to see if there's any indication in there, dmesg, kernel logs too, etc. should report if OOMkill clobbered it.

Hi guys - is this the right place to get support for Orbot?
I can't get it working on my phone. It wont connect.
cacahuatl
Can you connect to Tor normally over the connection it's trying to use?
srg
I can, i'm on my home wifi and I can run TBB on my laptop no problem
It looks like something is blocking Orbot from starting - I hold down the button to start it, and it quickly jumps (less than a second) from the starting image back to "off"
as if something on my phone is blocking it from starting?
I do have the afwall firewall - but I disabled it entirely when trying to figure this out
cacahuatl
Er, do you know if you've got the PIE version or not? it might be worth checking, maybe your device doesn't support PIE
srg
Ah!
I just checked in f-droid, I have the non PIE version. 14.0.8.1
There's a more recent one, 15.0.1-RC-1-PIE. I'll try that just to see.
cacahuatl
Well, the issue might have been that PIE wasn't supported, if you've got non-PIE it's not likely to be the issue.
srg
This is really really weird
it just connected
I got a "connected to the Tor network"
maybe it's not PIE-related, but a bug in the previous Orbot version in F-droid?
cacahuatl
I personally find Orbot to be a bit quirky at times, so I lock it down with iptables :/ it's possible there is some bug there, but it probably needs more poking, if it's related to the orbot software then #guardianproject (and I think also on freenode?) might be a better place to poke people about it
Guest134
they are on freenode
re: Guardianproject
srg
cacahuatl: Do you use AFWall?
I'm having some weird problems wiht AFWall on the new cyanogenmod 12.1
cacahuatl
No, sorry, no experience with it.
letsfindout
with globe/atlas seemingly down, is there another way to check consensus weight?
arm doesn't seem to show it, unless I'm missing something
and it's not mentioned in tor logs
cacahuatl
it's in the consensus itself
letsfindout
I don't follow
cacahuatl
/var/lib/tor/cached-microdesc-consensus or whatever
also https://globe.thecthulhu.com/ there's a seperate instance of onionoo running here
letsfindout
that file has sha256sums with sigs? don't get how I would get consensus weight from that
is dirport's bandwidth allowance included within relaybandwidthrate?
is anyone here? lol
ryonaloli_
i am
you can get the consensus weight by just looking in the file. i believe it's plaintext
qwerty1
yes directory bandwidth is included
letsfindout
checked by reading the src
RolaCola
Do relays acting as introduction points see which hidden service they're introducing people to?
letsfindout
interesting... do you have any experience as to how much bandwidth being a directory mirror will use?
seems like they should have separate bandwidth limits, but maybe I'm missing something
RolaCola
I'm reading arma's rend-spec document and I'm not sure what is meant by the "service key" or "public key" - if the introduction point knows those keys surely it knows (and could find out) the HS behind it?
letsfindout
my understanding is that the hidden service builds a tor circuit of multiple relays
the entry knows the circuit it's on is the hidden service
but the other relays don't?
the entry just passes it along the circuit
maybe someone else can chime in though, my understanding is kinda basic
RolaCola
letsfindout before that point, the tor client has to discover how to contact the HS with a lookup, then an introduction. It seems directory relays know what's being looked up, but does that also mean introductory nodes can potentially tally how many people are actually initiating a connection?
letsfindout
introductory nodes can see how many connections are being made to it from other nodes in the tor network
but even that's not all the connections, because hidden services have multiple circuits, I believe
AnAnt
Hello, did tor 0.2.6.7 change the way it does name-resolution ? I am not able to query IPv6 addresses anymore
_aeris_
hello here :)
globe and atlas down ? :(
nicoo
_aeris_: I had issues yesterday, but Globe seems to work for me today
_aeris_
https://globe.torproject.org/#/search/query=kitten1
« The API replied with an error to your query. This probably means that you did not properly format your query. » :(
nicoo
Same for me, but https://atlas.torproject.org/#details/EFAE44728264982224445E96214C15F9075DEE1D works. Might be that looking-up by nick is currently broken
redturtle
hey
anyone there? :^
had a question
zandi
redturtle: you can just ask, see if anyone knows
Robert
