Bitcoin Core 23.0.0
I’ve never run a Lightning node before but I’ve been running a Bitcoin node for almost a year with no problems at all.
I’m trying to get LND running, but it keeps shutting down after less than a minute. I start it up, unlock the wallet and it appears to work, but then stops. (I do not have the wallet funded yet. Should that matter if I only want to start the application and connect to the network?)
The two lines that report errors in
[ERR] SRVR: Unable to connect to 02a[email protected]220.127.116.11:9735: dial proxy failed: socks connect tcp 127.0.0.1:9050->18.104.22.168:9735: unknown error general SOCKS server failure [ERR] DISC: Unable to query bootstrapper BOLT-0010 DNS Seed: [[nodes.lightning.directory soa.nodes.lightning.directory] [lseed.bitcoinstats.com ]]: tor host is unreachable
I have Bitcoin Core running over tor on the same machine and it has been working fine for many months. I’m not a tor expert and never had to do any configuring to get it working with Bitcoin Core.
bitcoin.conf file contains:
txindex=1 debug=net server=1 rpcbind=127.0.0.1:8901 rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcuser=username rpcpassword=xxxxxxxx zmqpubrawblock=tcp://127.0.0.1:28332 zmqpubrawtx=tcp://127.0.0.1:28333
My lnd.conf file contains:
bitcoin.active=1 bitcoin.mainnet=1 bitcoin.node=bitcoind bitcoind.rpchost=127.0.0.1:8901 bitcoind.rpcuser=username bitcoind.rpcpass=xxxxxxxx bitcoind.zmqpubrawblock=tcp://127.0.0.1:28332 bitcoind.zmqpubrawtx=tcp://127.0.0.1:28333 tor.active=1 tor.v3=1 tor.streamisolation=1 maxpendingchannels=5 debuglevel=debug
Is something missing from one of my config files?
Do I have to open a port on my router and modem to connect with tor?
Is there something else that might be configured incorrectly?
