Can a 504 error be fixed? Please help me. no matter what deepweb site I search on orweb or orfox it results with the 504 error. Don't know what to do. I have a galaxy s3 mini and don't want to root it.
This error means you're not receiving a response from the server you're trying to connect to in due time. The likely cause is that you are running Orweb on an unrooted Android device. There is a solution however that does not involve rooting the device:
- If you are connected to the internet on your phone through WiFi, open your WiFi settings, press and hold on the WiFi connection name you're connected to, and choose "Modify connection config", and check "Show advanced options" and enter "localhost" in the "proxy hostname" field and "8118" in the "proxy port" field. Press "Save" and you should be able to browse through Tor now.
- If you are connected through 3G/4G, find the "Mobile Networks" in your main settings (it is under "More settings" in some devices), press "Access Point Names", then press on the access point with radio button checked (if there isn't any you'll have to create a new one). Inside the access point name settings, put "localhost" and "8118" in the respective fields of "Proxy" and "Port".
