I need some help or advices since I've not know what could I do to fix this issue.

I've built an onion pi following the adafruit tutorial.

This basicly is a wifi hotspot that routes all traffic through tor network using a wifi dongle and hostapd, which creates a subnet and give DHCP addresses inside that subnet.

I'm able to connect to the wifi hotspot, to receive automatically a new IP address inside the subnet configured, and to browse Internet flawlessly until I add the Iptables rules that routes the traffic through tor.

Once I've added these rules, the hotspot is not able to exit to the internet, and I cannot explain myself why.

sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p tcp --dport 22 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 22
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p udp --dport 53 -j REDIRECT --to-ports 53
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i wlan0 -p tcp --syn -j REDIRECT --to-ports 9040
sudo sh -c "iptables-save > /etc/iptables.ipv4.nat"

If I flush the rules, I'm able again to browse internet with no issues.

This is my torrc config:

Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices.log
VirtualAddrNetwork 172.16.0.0/12
AutomapHostsSuffixes .onion,.exit
AutomapHostsOnResolve 1
TransPort 9040
TransListenAddress 192.168.42.1
DNSPort 53
DNSListenAddress 192.168.42.1

And this is my hostapd config:

interface=wlan0
#driver=rtl871xdrv
ssid=DUGA-93
country_code=US
hw_mode=g
channel=6
macaddr_acl=0
auth_algs=1

wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=CCMP
wpa_group_rekey=86400
ieee80211n=1
wme_enabled=1

This is my ifconfig:

As you can see, tor service is running:

And I'm running raspbian buster last version (minimal) over a RPI2B+

These are the notices.log from tor:

BTW, If I do this from the Pi command line:

torify curl https://canihazip.com/s

171.25.193.25

It works. I'm connected to tor since that's not my ip.

Please, could you help me?

Thank you so much. Kind Regards.

From Reddit, one of the users told me how to solve this problem:

Ah, ok - that's looking better. It does remind me that the tutorial is a bit old and Tor keeps changing configuration options. You'll notice in the log that it's ignoring the TransListenAddress and DNSListenAddress entries. This used to force the whole thing to break but it's been a little odd since then.

Try the following changes to the torrc:

DNSPort 192.168.42.1:53
DNSPort 127.0.0.1:53
TransPort 192.168.42.1:9040
TransPort 127.0.0.1:9040

And restart tor. Once that's done, try running sudo netstat -tlnp and verify that 9040 is listening. If so, try accessing Tor again via the client. If that still doesn't work, try accessing http://104.16.181.15. Note that this is a Cloudflare test IP and will throw an error but should show what your IP is. If this works, and it's not your IP then it sounds like a Tor DNS problem.
