I am a Cyber Security major. I'm fascinated by dark net sites and I wanted to start learning Tor so I decided to start a tor hidden service. I have two questions
1. When I connect to the Tor Hidden Service in the Tor browser it displays my server's IP Address after the page loads. Why is this happening and how do I stop it?
2. How do I configure the server so that someone connecting to the server's IP Address won't be served web pages? I was thinking about using a firewall but I thought that may block the Tor Hidden service.
Also recommendations on what to read to learn Tor and get better would be helpful.
