Tor pluggable config with VPN problems and irc chat help
hello, Not sure if i selected right dropdown choices. i write for Tor browser 6.5
I need your help to configure Tor on pc/mac platform due to the following as well as i cannot understand as newbie about logs and editing. i prefer step-by-step instructions
I recently bought a vpn subscr. with standard router, as i have had surveliance issues by authorities and presume a message header caused filter to be triggered.
For say 2 days... tor is very slow loading websites compared to the past usage, which was either non-censored default connection or censored Yes, No proxy and obfs4
These 2 days i get frequent error <...establishing an encrypted directory connection failed (done - 109.105.109/147:13764> or other ips appearing in same message.
I read that if this error shows up, possibly is a mitm attack- some others say no, but do NOT login anywhere even after you connect with Tor as isp breaks SSL ...?
If above is true, then does this mean that my passwords have or can been recorded ? Did they see what i typed ?
Then i noticed although the webrtc was off on my firefox, it started leaking IP, and VPN was switching back to my country for a reason and added a plugin, now seems fixed.
I have fear that isp and a surv. body does this, due to nature of my job, but cannot proove it insofar, as non technical person.
Also the area i am situated is rural and i might be easy to spot from ISP ?
Now Tor as default (no censor choice) loads fast but websites load very slow. I tried meek-amazon and takes ages to connect I tried the google method and insofar works ok.
if vpn type ie DDOS or onion etc. matters which one to prefer, also for large file uploads ?
BUT can you help me please to secure better with commands in my log and be sure that i will be ok when a task must be completed over web ?
Finally, appologising for long text, can you help me to connect to #tor chat channels, not sure how to connect, create a/c and i need it asap.
any help is very appreciated
