After following the Tor Bridge installation docs and the download instructions for Ubuntu, I've successfully confirmed connection to the Tor network via a Raspberry Pi 2 with Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver; although I'm connected as confirmed by the notices.log, the log-file stops after "Performing Bandwidth self-test...done", so I examined the debug.log file- although there is some network activity documented, it appears that the majority of traffic is being scrubbed or "washed" with repeating output "Port 443 is already being handled; removing" (as detailed in the below snapshot).
Although the Tor docs apparently recommend punching holes for 80 and 443, those ports are already in-use on my network, so I set
ORPort to 3443 within the torrc-config file, which includes the following parameters within the below markdown (please feel free to review my blog-post detailing my approach if need be):
BridgeRelay1 ORPort 3443 ServerTransportPlugin obfs4 exec /usr/bin/obfs4proxy. ServerTransportListenAddr obfs4 0.0.0.0:3448 Uncomment line ExtORPort auto. Nickname choose-whatever-you-want ContactInfo your-contact-name <[email protected]>
Can someone please confirm if the "Port 443 is already being handled; removing" is an error due to my configuration file or if this is normal under the circumstances (ie unable to utilize 443 due to existing network preferences)? How can I resolve? I'd sincerely appreciate it- thanks!
