I'm totally new to I2P and trying to configure it so that I could browse ordinary web-pages (eg Linkedin which is blocked in our country right now). At the time of writing the only thing worked properly are .i2p sites like DifTracker:

I use Arch Linux x64 (4.13.9-1-ARCH) with Firefox. Let me list the steps I did:

1. Set port forwarding on my router:

2. Set the following proxy settings in Firefox's preferences:

3. Check if I2P tunnels ("outproxies"?) work. As you can see the network status is OK at the sidebar:

Finally, I tried to go to reddit but Firefox says proxy server refuses connections:

Any ideas?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is a question about I2P, not Tor.

    @canonizingironize sadly, I2P.SE site was closed, so it's the closest StackExchange place where he can ask...

So, you have a checklist to verify:

  • First, you need to check allowed clients list.
  • Second - IP binding in the proxy service, it should be explicitly, it can be - and in I2P it used to cause some glitches.
  • Third - check the logs, a false.i2p can be not working, there're other proxies in I2P, try them too. If it is a remote problem - it will tell you in the debug logs

Also a sidenote: if you have not fully bootstrapped your node - it can be just a bootstrap problem, you will have to wait for known nodes like some thousands and disappearing of the writing "rejecting tunnels: starting up" - with ports forwarded it takes about 30-40 minutes to get the network-integrated status.

Feel free to ask further questions if you have ones!

  • Thank you a lot! At least for the adequate answer instead just voting for close. Unfortunately, I were far away from being questioning you further. So the first one I didn't get is what do you mean by "check allowed clients list"? Wasn't that screen (i.stack.imgur.com/BUCEv.png) what you suggest for? Nov 28 '17 at 9:01
