i2p & searches return from clearnet

Post by sine$A9 »

i'm using FF v89 on linuxmint running i2p v0.9.50. FF profile is i2p.

these are the network settings in FF:
-----------
HTTP Proxy: 127.0.0.1 port: 4444
HTTPS Proxy: 127.0.0.1 port: 4445

No Proxy for:
localhost,127.0.0.1
-----------

duckduckgo is set as search engine.
when i put in a search request to duckduckgo, say "opennic.org" it goes out to clearnet for returned results.

i had thought going out to clearnet while running i2p/FF wouldn't happen unless i used something like foxyproxy and explicitly set it to allow.

do i have my proxies configured incorrectly?
what search engine to use to (only) search i2p landscape?

Hi

there is a outproxy running and fetching the clearnet content for you while using the I2P proxy port 4444/4445.
