Using Tor with UltraPoint


UltraPoint 0.15.0
Using Tor with UltraPoint

While Ultrapoint isn't made to integrate with Tor, it can be used wrapped with torsocks, if you add --p2p-bind-ip 127.0.0.1 to the ultrapointd command line. You also want to set DNS requests to go over TCP, so they'll be routed through Tor, by setting DNS_PUBLIC=tcp. You may also disable IGD (UPnP port forwarding negotiation), which is pointless with Tor. To allow local connections from the wallet, you might have to add TORSOCKS_ALLOW_INBOUND=1, some OSes need it and some don't. Example:


DNS_PUBLIC=tcp torsocks ultrapointd --p2p-bind-ip 127.0.0.1 --no-igd


or:


DNS_PUBLIC=tcp TORSOCKS_ALLOW_INBOUND=1 torsocks ultrapointd --p2p-bind-ip 127.0.0.1 --no-igd


TAILS ships with a very restrictive set of firewall rules. Therefore, you need to add a rule to allow this connection too, in addition to telling torsocks to allow inbound connections. Full example:


sudo iptables -I OUTPUT 2 -p tcp -d 127.0.0.1 -m tcp --dport 17090 -j ACCEPT


DNS_PUBLIC=tcp torsocks ./ultrapointd --p2p-bind-ip 127.0.0.1 --no-igd --rpc-bind-ip 127.0.0.1 --data-dir /home/amnesia/Persistent/your/directory/to/the/blockchain


./ultrapoint-wallet-cli
