I am in the process of setting up my first Tor Bridge:
Bridge <firgerprint redacted> advertises: * obfs4: functional Last tested: 2023-08-12 03:23:02.954463531 +0000 UTC (43m55.667246855s ago)
I followed the official instructions for Ubuntu-based OS.
One thing I do not understand, maybe for someone else it could be self-explanatory, but it sure isn't to me:
Why do I need to have 2 different ports open and not just one? What makes them different?:
1071 476K ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:4xxxx /* Tor Bridge (Onion) */ 47256 13M ACCEPT tcp -- any any anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:4yyyy /* Tor Bridge (obfs4) */
Well, as shown above, more packets/data flows through the obfs4 port, but feel free to elaborate and explain. Thanks.
