Tor browser! keep get 'Qt: Session management error: Authentication Rejected...'


Hi there,

I read some stuff about Tor accidently and it's interested me very much, so I decided to give it a try, but never get it wokred. I've been keeping plug for while, i feel my interests is runing out, so i figure i better start ask before that.

I downloaded the Tor-bundle and extracted it , when i run ./start-tor-browser , it always get this error:
'Qt: Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed'.
I thought it's because i don't have qt in my box, so i installed the newest qt. It ate a lot disk space.but I continue get the error information.
Tor seem start runing, but never get connected to the tor network. I have added bridges. Is there any paticular port should be open in iptalbes for tor's running?


I'm runing a new salix os based on slackware with xfce.

Thanks in advance.

Did you follow the instructions at https://www.torproject.org/projects/....html.en#Linux ?
Did you by any chance unpack the tarball as root?
Do you execute start-tor-browser from the directory as suggested?
Do you execute start-tor-browser as a different user than that you're logged in with?
*To keep things simple: if you've configured TOR (and torrc doesn't require much configuration actually) then TORButton and Vidalia are just convenience and absolutely not necessary to run TOR successfully.

Best start by checking the log file for clues.

Generally speaking you should only add bridges if you can not connect to the Tor network directly, but not being able to connect to the Tor network directly does not automagically mean you should use a bridge: check your configuration and log first.

thanks for your replpy !

I checked couple of things u said, i believe i did it right about unpack and running DIR steps, but i didn't edit configure file

I added bridges because I am in china-mainland right now , some info says that i shoud do so, but i could be wrong, it's difficult to access infomation about tor or of any sorts , even through a tunnel, it gets blocked constantly.

I opened ports about tor, and set my ip as the dmz in the router(not sure if it's necessary), tor can't connect.

I got some log like this:
Problem bootstrapping. Stuck at 5% (Connecting to directory server, time out; recomendation warn)
...
...
...

Just post some matearial first, I'll keep post new things

NP, most of the time you would edit torrc by way of Vidalia if you use it.

OK.

If you're behind a NAT router then you should "guide" traffic that reaches the router onwards to the machine that runs TOR. While placing the the machine that runs TOR in your routers DMZ may sound convenient it exposes the whole machine instead of just the necessary ports so you have to ensure it is properly firewalled. And IIRC default ports used are TCP/443 and TCP/9001.

Try to configure a log level that shows more information or post more information.

With all due respect it would be more efficient to first check everything and then post everything.
