Just plugged in my node.
Amazing interface, thanks a lot for creating this.
I have one question though.
I was wondering how is this possible and if it can be sustainable or should I create a back up plan in case it fails synchronizing at one point?
I can’t even access Tor website on a browser without a VPN so I was wondering how Umbrel Pi can?
Thanks a lot!
If sync fails it will resume from where it left off when restarted. You’ll need to re-flash the SD card if power loss has occurred but that wont effect any data or syncing.
-Save your 24 word seed for the nodes wallet.
-Download lightning channel backup and store someplace safe.
Regarding Tor access, I’m not entirely sure its possible to access a Tor website without physically using Tor. Umbrel has no issue as its using Tor. Someone with more knowledge of Tor might be able to answer this more in depth.
He was talking about using Tor Browser (without a bridge, or VPN) being blocked by his gov / ISP while Umbrel can sync over Tor without any issue.
Yes precisely, I was talking about that. @full_node thanks anyway! I’m well aware of backup options like seeds.
My backup plan for TOR in case it fails is to run a VPN-enabled mini-wifi router and enable TOR on that then connect my Umbrel node to that router via ethernet cable.
It’ll just cost me a bit for the VPN subscription but that’s a small price to pay living under dictatorship lol.
So far so good tho, Umbrel is synching like a monster through TOR, almost completed!
