Debian 10.13
Bitcoin Core 23.0.0
LND 0.15.1-beta

I've never run a Lightning node before but I've been running a Bitcoin node for almost a year with no problems at all.

I'm trying to get LND running, but it keeps shutting down after less than a minute. I start it up, unlock the wallet and it appears to work, but then stops. (I do not have the wallet funded yet. Should that matter if I only want to start the application and connect to the network?)

The two lines that report errors in lnd.log are:

[ERR] SRVR: Unable to connect to 02ab16f790c7727eac2048771cbe95cbcc1aa93931558c0fd87c06d5c389475a7b@159.89.97.171:9735: dial proxy failed: socks connect tcp 127.0.0.1:9050->159.89.97.171:9735: unknown error general SOCKS server failure
[ERR] DISC: Unable to query bootstrapper BOLT-0010 DNS Seed: [[nodes.lightning.directory soa.nodes.lightning.directory] [lseed.bitcoinstats.com ]]: tor host is unreachable

I have Bitcoin Core running over tor on the same machine and it has been working fine for many months. I'm not a tor expert and never had to do any configuring to get it working with Bitcoin Core.

My bitcoin.conf file contains:

txindex=1
debug=net
server=1
rpcbind=127.0.0.1:8901
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=xxxxxxxx
zmqpubrawblock=tcp://127.0.0.1:28332
zmqpubrawtx=tcp://127.0.0.1:28333

My lnd.conf file contains:

bitcoin.active=1
bitcoin.mainnet=1
bitcoin.node=bitcoind
bitcoind.rpchost=127.0.0.1:8901
bitcoind.rpcuser=username
bitcoind.rpcpass=xxxxxxxx
bitcoind.zmqpubrawblock=tcp://127.0.0.1:28332
bitcoind.zmqpubrawtx=tcp://127.0.0.1:28333
tor.active=1
tor.v3=1
tor.streamisolation=1
maxpendingchannels=5
debuglevel=debug

Is something missing from one of my config files?
Do I have to open a port on my router and modem to connect with tor?
Is there something else that might be configured incorrectly?
