I am trying to configure a usable coding environment on a tails-os usb boot stick with persistent storage.
I've installed netbeans and composer, but I am unable to add plugins to netbeans, and I am unable to use composer. From the terminal, composer is unable to access the network. Netbeans does not provide me any error, but I suspect the same issue.
I have connected the Wifi, and to avoid DNS issues, I set the DNS to 188.8.131.52 so that the OS knows where to reslove domain names.
When I ping 184.108.40.206 from the terminal, I see "From 192.168.1.137 icmp_seq=1 Destination Port Unreachable." This leads me to believe that the connection issue relates to the fact that local addresses are not accessible via Tails.
How do I force an unsafe connection to an external IP address directly?
Alternatively, how can I use composer or Netbeans safely in the Tails environment without violating the security protections?
