I have set up Monero on Tails as described on the GitHub page: Using Tor on Tails:
sudo iptables -I OUTPUT 2 -p tcp -d 127.0.0.1 -m tcp --dport 18081 -j ACCEPT DNS_PUBLIC=tcp torsocks ./monerod --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
However, it worked once and then I always get the following errors (though the internet connection works):
ERROR torsocks : General SOCKS server failure (in socks5_recv_connect_reply() at socks5.c:527) Connection refused to Tor Socks (in socks5_recv_connect_replay() at socks5.c:543)
I have 3 questions:
1) I suppose I have to enter the iptables and DNS_PUBLIC command each time I start up Tails, correct? If so is there a way to make this persistent?
2) Why would I get the errors above and which steps would I have to take to avoid them?
3) Can I mine from Tails? When I tried I got an error.
