i2p support

Added by Neon Robot 3 months ago

Installed i2p proxy, but from fdroid.
But configuration manager is telling that Privacy Browser is not supported.

Any thoughts on this?

I'm not sure what you mean by configuration manager, but if you start I2P and wait for it to establish an HTTP/HTTPS Proxy tunnel (see attached screenshot) and then enable the I2P proxy in Privacy Browser it will work. Note that it can take up to ten minutes for I2P to establish an HTTP/HTTPS Proxy tunnel. (Also note that I2P can be quite slow and webpages often time out.)

I don't know the fact that it is such a slow. As i understand Tor is much faster.

I get the following output in i2p.

That's because I2P doesn't know anything about Privacy Browser. And, it doesn't need to. All it needs to do is start the HTTP/HTTPS Proxy and then Privacy Browser can connect to it with the proxy settings.
