Unable to use Tor with Zecwallet Lite?

I have tried on both my Macbook and my windows desktop. The zcash.conf file is not there by default. I tried making my own file and adding the configurations needed. I’ve then tried to launch Zecwallet without Tor running and it synced as usual without network errors so I’m assuming it’s not working.

Is Tor support only for Zecwallet and not the Lite version?

This is correct. The Lite client currently doesn’t support Tor. The reason is somewhat technical (The light protocol currently uses gRPC/HTTP2, which doesn’t play well with TOR), but we’re looking into adding support.


Thanks. I’ll upgrade to the full version then. Hopefully doing a full sync wont take too long.
