I have just installed tor middle relay using this youtube guide.
I did everything up until the 12th minute of this video.
I have tor installed on a vps server I run from Vultr.
Then I have installed this tor monitor tool called
My intention is to run a middle relay with it, to help tor network.
I think everything is working fine but I don't know, which ports should I open on my UFW firewall?
I've opened 9001, because I feel it's obvious it needs to be allowed.
This is my current UWF setup:
sudo ufw status verbose [sudo] password for <my_login>: Status: active Logging: on (low) Default: deny (incoming), allow (outgoing), disabled (routed) New profiles: skip To Action From -- ------ ---- 22/tcp DENY IN Anywhere 27119/tcp ALLOW IN Anywhere 19302/tcp DENY IN Anywhere 9001/tcp ALLOW IN Anywhere 22/tcp (v6) DENY IN Anywhere (v6) 19302/tcp (v6) DENY IN Anywhere (v6) 9001/tcp (v6) ALLOW IN Anywhere (v6)
I cannot log into
nyx, and I feel I did everything as shown in the YouTube video.
But when I try 2 log into
nyx and when I paste password using right mouse click (I'm using PowerShell to log into my vps) I get "incorrect password" output.
<my_login>@debian:~$ nyx Tor controller password: Incorrect password
I got the password from this site:
then I hashed it, the same way, that is shown on the video.
It's my first attempt to configuring tor middle relay.
I could use some help.
Should I also allow in my 9051/tcp port?? The default Control Port.
## The port on which Tor will listen for local connections from Tor ## controller applications, as documented in control-spec.txt. ControlPort 9051 ## If you enable the controlport, be sure to enable one of these ## authentication methods, to prevent attackers from accessing it. HashedControlPassword 16:my_password's_hash #CookieAuthentication 1
What is the difference between
