I am trying to setup a hidden service on an android device but cannot seem to get it to work. I have installed Palapa server and the website is available on localhost as well as over my network (for testing) so I know the webserver is working.
I have installed Orbot and selected "Hidden Service Hosting" and set the port to the same used during the tests of the webserver on localhost above.
It generates a .onion address for me - but I cannot reach the site over TOR. I think some info is exchanged, as when I try to reach the .onion site I notice some data exchange on orbot but I receive an "Unable to Connect" error.
Does anyone have any ideas?
P.S. Worth noting I got this working on both Windows and Raspian (Rapsberry PI) so I know at least the basics... BUT could still be doing something stupid.
