How can I disable Tor

I can not use Tor in my country, how can I disable Tor in Umbrel?

That’s NOT a solution.
Buy a remote VPS server, host a VPN server on it, connect your Umbrel node to that VPN server and run it as it would be from that IP/location. Will work nicely with Tor.
You just bootstrap your fucking country.

If your country doesn’t want you to use Tor, what do you think it will happen when they will realize you are running a BTC node in clearnet? Will come and bring down your door and take your node.
Running a node behind tor is a must.


obviously that’s NOT a solution. That’s the question. I need to test the network without Tor in order to troubleshoot my connection.
So how can I do it technically?

disabling Tor is the option in the interface. But it’s not working.

If you install tailScale it will allocate an IP to your node that you’ll be able then to access from the clearnet

Thank you.
My problem isn’t the node access. My problem is zero peers connection. No sync is happening. I suspect it’s related to Tor.

It seems that Umbrel over Tor doesn’t work in Russia because of the governmental ban. Symptoms: no peer connections, no blockchain sync.

I installed Mynode. The same: no sync over Tor. Then I disabled Tor and rebooted. Sync started.

I understand how Tor is important for Bitcoin.
Also I prefer Umbrel over Mynode.
I can use Tor browser using bridgers in Russia even with the ban.
Question: Is there a method enable Umbrel over Tor for the restricted network in Russia?

This guide works perfect.

Also adding my guide on a more elaborative version of a VPS setup for your LND Node here:

Disclaimer: I haven’t done it for umbrel, but added the umbrel details in there too. A bunch of people on Twitter confirmed it’s working for them.
