I hope this is straightforward…
I installed Radicale, and am reading the instructions for how to add the calendar to Thunderbird (instructions are for any calendar, I just happen to use Thunderbird).
Step 4 on the Radical manual says:
- Save the URL, e.g.,
/. Items in italics need to be changed to match your settings.
Where do I get an onion address for my server?
Background: my ISP blocks access to my server from within the network by rejecting “hairpinning” (I think that’s what it’s called) - so I always connect to my server by way of a TOR browser. This step in Radicale seems to be saying I need a real Onion address for my server, to paste into Thunderbird’s calendar setup process.
I tried setting up the calendar in Thunderbird with just the normal “xxxxxx.freedombocks.rocks…” domain name, but it didn’t work (I assume because of the hairpinning limitation I mentioned above). I assume I need a TOR / Onion address to get thunderbird to go around the ISP limitation and connect to my Radicale calendar?
So … I looked into getting an onion address using shalot or something… ! complicated, I must say…
Any other ideas? do I just need to install TOR from the apps section on my freedombox and that will do it for me?
