Tor is last version. When paste any .onion address I see this:

ERROR: Not Found

While trying to retrieve the URL http://site.onion/ (normal onion address, that actually works fine):

DNS resolving failed

Your cache administrator is webmaster.

What to do? Help please. Thanks.

Onion services come and go quickly. It is no surprise that many of the ones that you might use are not functional. If you want to test your connection, a couple of ones that you can try are: facebook and the tor project.

  • Site I want to visit is online and working.

This part of the error message:

Your cache administrator is webmaster.

Suggests that whatever you're pasting the onion address into is configured to use a caching proxy that does not understand onion addresses. You'll need to reconfigure your system to use a proxy that understands onion addresses, or to not use a proxy for connecting to onion addresses.

  • But I did not configured anything. Which way too look?
