err
panoptikon
hey all. im having a problem on ubuntu server 12.04. hidden services simply does not work. do you know if they need time to propagate or something?
i have both hostname and private_key files on my /var/lib/tor/hidden_service/
tor is running normally in the system.
any clues?
kernelcorn
hi panoptikon
have you checked the Tor log?
tail -20 /var/log/tor/notice.log
correction, it may be /var/log/tor/log

kernelcorn
oh dear
panoptikon
maybe its this the problem?
kernelcorn
that is truly ancient
see https://metrics.torproject.org/versions.html
you NEED to upgrade. What operating system are you running?
dsc
did you do apt-get?
panoptikon
yes
I think I installed from the debian official repo
not from torproject.org repo
will purge debian repo version and install from torproject.org repo
im running ubuntu 12.04
         

kernelcorn
Tor 0.2.x died in early 2013
correction, 0.2.2.x
dsc
i wouldnt be suprised if debian has old tor packages
use original repo
panoptikon
yes i will, doing it now.
kernelcorn
that should fix your problem. If you purged Tor, it may have erased /var/lib/tor/hidden_service
hidden services should be available within a minute or two, but I've had them take upwards of 20 minutes sometimes
panoptikon
yes, solved!
got brand new hidden service working.
thank you kernelcorn and dsc

dsc: No, Debian maintains Tor packages fairly well.
squeeze has 0.2.2.39, but squeeze-lts has 0.2.4.27. Whatever squeeze-lts is.
panoptikon
it happened with Ubuntu 12.04 in my case
Peng
Yeah, Ubuntu isn't Debian. :<
dsc
if only ? :P
panoptikon
Maybe after Ubuntu 14 was distributed they stop updating 12.04?
dsc
no, a release has a lifespan for support
in the form of packages and more
that is predetermined
Peng
That's what stable distros are about -- not wantonly backporting new versions of stuff.
mrphs
panoptikon mentioned they're running an ubuntu server. not debian
ubuntu has this crazy old package
Peng
And what Ubuntu stable releases are about is wantonly *not* backporting stuff. ;)
Chocolate_Chip
Found another. This is the exact same thing, made by the same people, under a different name
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/tor-browser-download/9nblggh1d8jg
auk
Peng: haha
mrphs
Chocolate_Chip: oh boy. can you please send this as a reply to your previous report?
Chocolate_Chip
ok
mrphs
bonus point if you create a ticket so we dont forget about it
auk
wow does microsoft have zero review process on their app store?
         

Peng
panoptikon: Ubuntu probably froze the packages in 12.04 a month or two before the release, in Feb or Mar or whatever. I'm sure their processes are documented.
auk
maybe it would be a good idea to automate scraping the common app stores looking for tor lookalikes
Peng
panoptikon: Or they'd pulled in the then-current Debian package six months earlier and forgotten about it ;)
panoptikon
heh yep
mrphs
auk: sounds like a cool project. someone should do it :)
maybe that someone is you
Chocolate_Chip
sent
auk
mrphs: i'll look into it, but no promises :) my coding skills are not all that
Chocolate_Chip
Oh wow. I just noticed that the new browser I found has less memory than the other one
Both of them have less than 600Kb
Windows 10 Mobile Preview is so broken I can't even download them
Heh. Star Wars: The Old Republicdev rss feed is called "Tor Devtracker"

Hi, I needed some infos about some tor-related services, anyone who can help?
shamoanjac
ask what you need
lsm5
hi, my Tor relay doesn't seem to be getting listed on atlas, though it's been up for quite a few days now
also, don't see any "authdir is rejecting.." errors in my logs either, so I'm quite certain my node hasn't been blacklisted for whatever reason
Kematian
The security of a tails persistent volume is comparable to a AES cryptography, for example?
riceren
how to use pidigin safely in tails without registered nickname?
Jimeyn^
lsm5, is there traffic? is the relay reachable from outside?
wgreenhouse
Kematian: tails's persistent volumes use LUKS, which uses "aes-cbc-essiv:sha256" cipher setup by default
Kematian
hmm
cacahuatl
aes-xts-plain64 now probably
they swapped from cbc a bit back, although you never can tell with a stable debian base :P
Kematian
so a multi layer cryptography would be more secure?
wgreenhouse
o.O
lsm5
Jimeyn^: hmm, I see that nmap doesn't list 9001 and 9050 anymore, which iirc, it used to earlier, and re: reachable from outside, do you mean IP pingable?
Jimeyn^
is portforwarding of your router enabled?
lsm5
this is a remote VPS, so i don't know offhand, but guess I just gotta do some iptables crap to allow those ports
guess I'll try that first
Jimeyn^
^gl
lsm5
Jimeyn^: thanks for the help so far, i'll get back on this
Jimeyn^
shouldnt be hard to get it go
