Confusing UI/log when trying to use obfs4 bridges / impossible to use obfs4
Originally created by @camelcross on #12197 (Redmine)
i have a couple of decades programming background and have been using privacy tech.
i tried to set up Tails to a friend in Kazahstan, where Tor is blocked, therefore i needed obfs bridges.
it looks like obfs4 bridge lines are simply not supported by the version of Tor that is delivered with Tails.
i’ve been staring at the log and searching the web for hours until i found a hint that maybe i should try obfs3 bridges, which finally worked.
please make sure that there’s an easier way to get some more explicit feedback if this is the case.
