Bitmessage and I2P no longer working

Up until recently I have been using MiNode_I2P as a bridge to connect via I2P, but about a week ago there was a major update in the BM source code, and now my BM will no longer connect to the MiNode_I2P software. Granny Smith could do with a bit of help to get it working again.

BM doesn't concern itself with being compatible with past versions of itself let alone other implementations. Just go back to what you were using before.

Have you tried changing what port PyBitmessage is listening on so it's different from the MiNode's?

I changed the port number in the settings, and now MiNode/I2P is working again. Is there an easy way to enable or disable all connections to clearnet?

>Is there an easy way to enable or disable all connections to clearnet? Forget I asked that. I can see now that my BM is only connected to my MiNode node at 127.0.0.1:8444, and to the I2P network. There doesn't appear to be any connection to clearnet. I have Tor installed on my computer, with SOCKS port 9050 and ControlPort 9051 enabled, but I have never been able to get my BM to connect to it. I have no idea if using I2P is any more secure than using To would be.

Bitmessage in trustedpeer mode will not connect to any other nodes, so this is safe. Minode hovewer will connect to clearnet nodes by default settings. Start minode with these keys if you wish to disable clearnet connections: start.sh --i2p --no-ip

> I have no idea if using I2P is any more secure than using To would be. In my opinion both are good enough as long as you are not specifically targeted by some government. BTW, accoding to this: https://geti2p.net/pl/comparison/tor I2P is more "Peer-to-peer friendly"

The command I was using to start MiNode was: sh i2p_bridge.sh --debug --i2p-tunnel-length 1 and I have changed it to: sh start.sh --i2p --no-ip I don't know if there enough I2P nodes to allow BM to work properly, otherwise I'll have to re-enable MiNode connections to clearnet.

Granny isn't very sure about this stuff, so here goes. Am I right in thinking that my MiNode is now relying on other MiNode nodes that are still connected to the clearnet to relay BM traffic back to my node, and into my BM client? I wonder, from the point of a nosy intruder, how visible and identifiable my BM traffic is now, and whether it can be traced to my real IP address. I assume that the NSA and GCHQ still know what colour pants I am wearing!

> Am I right in thinking that my MiNode is now relying on other MiNode nodes that are still connected to the clearnet to relay BM traffic back to my node, and into my BM client? Yes, some other minodes are connected both to i2p and clearnet. If they will shut down, you will stop to get messages sent from clearnet. > I wonder, from the point of a nosy intruder, how visible and identifiable my BM traffic is now, and whether it can be traced to my real IP address. I2P is anonymous, your traffic is encrypted and all BM traffic signatures should be lost. However some posts here in chans state that all modern PCs have hardware backdoors, and NSA can connect to your PC and read all memory and files.
