Bitcoin Core over Tor

My EmbassyOS box running bitcoin core is almost finish syncing. How could I know if it’s “protected” by tor or connecting using my real ip address?

Many thanks.

In the Bitcoin service page, under Config → Peers, you will find an option to “Disable Clearnet,” in order to only connect to peers via Tor. This would lead to a much slower initial sync of course, but after that will not have noticeable performance effects.

@start9dave , many thanks for the reply. Currently the bitcoin core service is sync 100% done, but there are no inbound connections, all I have are outbound connections (10 of them). Any idea where I should check so that it allow inbound connections?

You should definitely be able to receive incoming connections - do you have “Make Public” set to False by chance?
