I want to use tor for my bitcoind node.
Until now, my node was public, had more than 8 connections (= some incoming connections?) And checked if port 8333 was accessible for the outside.
For the tor, I have this config:
ControlPort 9051 Cookie Authentication 1 CookieAuthFileGroupReadable 1
# Bitcoind options [6/2383] server = 1 demon = 1 txindex = 1 ... dbcache = 100 maxorphantx = 10 maxmempool = 50 maxconnections = 40 maxuploadtarget = 5000 # Tor config proxy = 127.0.0.1: 9050 bind = 127.0.0.1 listenonion = 1
In the bitcoind debug log, everything seems to be going for the better (Tor starts and the service ID is displayed),
bitcoin-cli getnetworkinfo also shows that everything works and that the node quickly wins peers.
Nevertheless, it stops when it receives 8 peers (outgoing connections) and is no longer recognizable from the outside (port 8333).
I want to have a node, which uses tor and which is recognizable from the outside (incoming connections). Currently, apparently, only the first hypothesis is true.
I wonder if I forgot something.
I've also tried both methods described in the wiki
