For Lightning on Raspberry Pi, I have gone with c-lightning, following @meeDamian's post https://medium.com/@meeDamian/c-lightning-node-on-rbp3-b950660fb835 . All up and running now, but I am light on incoming channels. Any connections welcome :) pzfsmtyqfgjj3j5wyzqruaim3qqrlccbiju34qoek6l77ydmiiupmmyd.onion:9735
@cryptonomicon I can't connect, trying manually gives me:
user@medea:~ % nc -x 127.0.0.1:9050 pzfsmtyqfgjj3j5wyzqruaim3qqrlccbiju34qoek6l77ydmiiupmmyd.onion 9735
nc: connection failed, SOCKS error 5
error 5 is Connection refused AFAIK, did you forward the right port from Tor?
@orionwl It might have been ufw? I just allowed 9050, it wasn't before.
@orionwl Actuallly, now that I am looking into it I don't think it should be 9050. 9735 is allowed on ufw and lightning config has these lines as I think is expected: proxy=127.0.0.1:9050
@cryptonomicon What is it then, 9735 or 9737?
@orionwl Torrc has:
HiddenServicePort 9737 127.0.0.1:9737
@cryptonomicon in your original post, you mentioned using port *9735*, which would be the default for lightning, not sure why you use *9737* but I'll try—
success! channel is opening
@orionwl Thanks, I can see the channel now. Sorry for the confusion. getinfo would have given me the correct address (using port 9737) but the console info I get (when I ssh to the pi) has port 9735 in the announce address for some reason.
@cryptonomicon so, everything considered, the full descriptor for your node is:
@orionwl I have now opened the firewall for 9737 and hopefully it works? Then I need to go back to reading more about how it actually works to understand it 😕
@orionwl Looking at the setup I have, I think the address should actually be: pzfsmtyqfgjj3j5wyzqruaim3qqrlccbiju34qoek6l77ydmiiupmmyd.onion:9737
@cryptonomicon I think Tor gives a different error when it can't redirect, it only gives "connection refused" when the port is not open on the hidden service *from the outside*
so I guess you have something like this in your torrc?
HiddenServicePort 9735 127.0.0.1:9735
FYI: port 9050 doesn't have anything to do with this, it's only used for proxying out, it can be closed when you're only running a hidden service
