  • Click “Check”, you should be prompted with the message “Successfully establised a connection”
  • Click “Add” to add your server to the list on the top
  • Remove the Shift servers to only connect to your own server


If you have Tor installed on your computer, you can access your RaspiBolt remotely over Tor.

  • In the sidebar, select Settings > Enable tor proxy
  • Enable it and confirm the proxy address (usually the default
