New TOR Bundle version 8.0.5 attempts to use por 444. Is this expected?


one week ago

Have been using TOR for a while and configured my firewall appropriately to only allow through ports I expect TOR to use. After upgrading from 8.0.4 to 8.0.5, I now see TOR attempt to use port 444 where it didn't before. Is this expected? It seems to work even without access but if it's by design I should probably let it through.

Seems that you've accidentally enabled public bridge relay.

Port 444 is associated with the Simple Network Paging Protocol (SNPP), but in fact is usually free.
So TOR switches to it something goes wrong with default 443.
