If your wallet is not reachable, the URL will turn orange after a while.
To fix this, we will need to tell Grin++ to use Bridges. Bridges are Tor relays which are not publicly listed as part of the Tor network. Bridges are essential censorship-circumvention tools in countries that regularly block the IP addresses of all publicly listed Tor relays, such as China.
These are the 5 easy steps to bypass the censorship:
Close Grin++, wait a moment to make sure the background program is completely closed.
Open the file manager and find the folder Tor according to the path
~/.GrinPP/MAINNET/TOR/ (macOS/Linux) or
%userprofile%/.GrinPP/MAINNET/TOR (Windows 7/8/10).
Create a file named
.torrc, and save it to this directory. Note that the file format is
.torrc, not a
Open your Web Browser and go to https://bridges.torproject.org/options and follow the instructions.
Copy each line starting with
Bridge and copy these line to the
.torrc file. Add
UseBridges 1 at the end of the file; you should have something like this:
Bridge obfs4 <IP-address 1:port 1> <Fingerprint of bridge 1> Bridge obfs4 <IP-address 2:port 2> <Fingerprint of bridge 2> Bridge obfs4 <IP-address 3:port 3> <Fingerprint of bridge 3> UseBridges 1
When you are ready, open Grin++ again; if the http address continues to appear orange, please wait for a while, and it should automatically turn green and will look like this:
