Hello somehow my tor-proxy stopped working and all my services using it did stop working. The general problem seems that Tor is not able to bootstrap throwing the error ((“general SOCKS server failure”). I restarted TOR and also Installed a bridge to connect to but it is not able to start up again and connect to the services. The log is full of:
Tried for 120 seconds to get a connection …
and the connection to my bridge does also not work (it works with the general Tor-Browser so the bridge works)
Proxy Client: unable to connect OR connection …(“general SOCKS server failure”)
I have no idea how to fix it. It seems that a reboot always fixes it but I cannot reboot my system every now and then so I am interested in the problem which causes this behaviour.
Considering the following setting in the torrc file
ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec /usr/bin/obfs4proxy managed
Bridge obfs4 …
Thanks for Helping out.
