Listen for incoming on Tor hidden service

I am setting up a node as a hidden service. I have the hidden service configured. I am certain that it is correctly configured. I have been configuring Tor hidden services for years. I have configured keys.dat. I am still only getting the yellow light. There are no incoming connections. I am on a high-bandwidth line. I have 500+Kb/sec throughput on Tor. Here is my keys.dat config: [bitmessagesettings] settingsversion = 10 port = 8444 socksproxytype = SOCKS5 sockshostname = localhost socksport = 9050 socksauthentication = False sockslisten = False socksusername = sockspassword = maxdownloadrate = 2048 maxuploadrate = 2048 maxoutboundconnections = 8 sendoutgoingconnections = True onionhostname = tue6bwmc5vgahg57.onion onionport = 8444 onionbindip = 127.0.0.1 There are no incoming connections. light is yellow. Using latest version of PyBitmessage.

It may take a while, hours even, for the connections to start coming in. I checked with nc, and I'm getting error 5, which the documentions says is "connection refused". So either you misconfigured something or you have a firewall. Your keys.dat looks fine. What does your HiddenServicePort line look like in torrc? Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

HiddenServiceDir /home/HiddenServices/bitmessage HiddenServicePort 8444 127.0.0.1:9999 I changed the port number while troubleshooting, and changed port in keys.dat: onionport = 9999

what causes the delay?

what text do you pipe through nc that bitmessage will respond to? or better, please show how you construct the nc command. thanks.

I am intermittently getting connection refused and unknown error. When I set nc to listen on the port, an incoming node attempted to send data. So the data got through that time. I don't know why it is refusing connection, as I turned firewall off. I tried different port numbers in all the settings, same result.

$nc -X 5 -x 127.0.0.1:9050 tue6bwmc5vgahg57.onion 8444 nc: connection failed, SOCKS error 4 $ nc -X 5 -x 127.0.0.1:9050 tue6bwmc5vgahg57.onion 9999 nc: connection failed, SOCKS error 4 The error codes can be found et https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCKS#SOCKS5 Error 4 means "host unreachable" so probably your tor isn't running now. The delay is caused by how the address propagation works. Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

"onionport" should correspond to the first number in the HiddenServicePort, and the second port (after :) should correspond to the "port". Peter Surda Bitmessage core developer

thanks. that's what i figured. I changed the service port and restarted tor a few times. I was finally able to browse to it and carry on nc exchanges over onionnet. It appears that bitmessage is not binding to the port for some reason. I am able to grab the port with nc even with bitmessage running.

Thanks for you help, Peter. It is now accepting incoming connections over onionnet. I do have another question if you feel so inclined. I noticed that all incoming (green) connections in the network status tab have a local IP address. None of them show a public IP or .onion address. Is this normal?

Normal. Read your torrc HiddenServicePort 8444 127.0.0.1:8444
