I can't connect to recon with tor

by /u/kiki123 · 1 votes · 3 weeks ago

Each time the same message is displayed "The onion site cannot be found

The most likely cause is that the onion site is offline. Contact the onion site administrator.

Details: 0xF0 - The descriptor for the requested onion service cannot be found on the hash ring and the service is therefore not accessible by the client."

I don't understand why because I'm sure this is the correct link. Can someone shed some light on this for me?

Recon has been offline for days. My educated guess (based on the error) is that it has been taken down by the staff to protect the Tor network.

Edit: Because of on-going DDOS.

probably better in /d/recon or /d/dread.

at a guess i'd say it's ddos like most other onions right now.

They need to upscale their infrastructure to mitigate the DDOS they're having.

Oh I wish it was this simple, we easily outscaled the attacks. We hit a bottle neck that can't be overcome, so scaling is useless. Dread and Recon's primary URLs are disabled until we solve this to protect the network.

Well I'm keeping a DNM afloat at the moment, using Onionbalance and a truckload of modifications and tweaks and whatnot, using good old Endgame with some modifcations. I'm testing with Gobalance at the moment as a replacement for OB. Happy to share if anyone is interested!

Thank you very much for your answers and do you think recon will come back. Are there any other alternative sites?

/u/Shakybeats M Modinator · 1 votes · 2 weeks ago · Link

Recon is currently under attack. If you are a premium user there is a private mirror.

Currently Recon has not been getting active stats. We were working on a major update for it when we started getting attacked. Once things are back to normal we will keep working on the update again.

Too bad, I would have liked to be a premium user but I just got to know the site. I hope the problem will be solved soon.

/u/TheQueenBee · 1 votes · 2 weeks ago · Link

Yeah. Like no one else can buy premium if its completely offline. Same goes for dread, probably lots of TOR users who would pay for access if they could find a way to sign up.

For concerned people, we are about to release an upgraded / modified version of Recon.

The main core of our service will rely on a powerful search-engine gathering products from major and active marketplaces around.

Vendor's PGP key and fingerprint as well as their previous and current scores, total sales will all be accessible through our service.

More than just a referencing service or an aggregator, we are a non-API based service capable of live-scanning dozens of markets on an hourly basis.

Strictly no data will be required from services we choose to scan ensuring figures, search results and statistics to perfectly match the reality.

We are testing our BETA version at the moment, so you can expect a V1 released within the next month or so.

Kind Regards
