I am running the latest TailsOS and would like to run and access a web service locally for myself. Just opening the index.html file in the TOR browser does not work, so I need some minimal web server hosting my
I tried both
busybox httpd and the node http server with no success. Whenever I try to open localhost:8000 or 127.0.0.1:8080 (both services are exposed on these ports respectively), I get nothing in my TOR browser. I also tried starting
nginx but the service fails to start after installation (which should automatically start an nginx service).
I assume all of the above issues are firewall issues, but can't figure out why I wouldn't be able to access such services locally as I anyway do not plan to expose them to the internet. Any pointers how to make that work would help!
