I am trying to connect to a hidden-service-IRC via torsocks and Irssi, following this guide - however, it seems rather outdated and doesnt work as excpected.
It is important to note, that torsocks itself works flawlessly,
torsocks curl ipinfo.io/ip shows connection via TOR, also connecting via torsocks and Irssi to clearweb-IRCs works. But connecting to a hidden service doesn't.
Following the linked guide, adding networks (but ignoring the --network switch wich Irssi seems to have dropped) results in the following er after
ERROR torsocks: Unable to resolve. Status reply: 4 (in socks5_recv_resolve_reply()
And Irssi itself states:
16:47 -!- Irssi: Unable to connect server Server1 port 6667 [Non-recoverable failure in name resolution]
Trying to connect to the URL itself via
/connect $URL.onion 6667 without adding the server/network to Irssi before results in:
WARNING torsocks: [connect] Connection to a local address are denied since it might be a TCP DNS query to a local DNS server. Rejecting it for safety reasons. (in tsocks_connect() at connect.
Is there anything I can do to get this working?
