[tbb-dev] Tor unable to parse Bridge setting if using domain

Hello everybody! Sorry if I'm asking on the wrong list.

I'm using Tor Expert in Win10 to bypass my office's firewall. It has 
multiple level of blocks: domains, IPs and ports. Most bridges I get 
from BridgesDB are blocked, but over time I've found a few that work there.

I had setup a Tor bridge on my home server. When I test it using 4G it 
works. It happens that my ISP's dynamic IPs are blocked too. I managed 
to find a domain I can use and isn't blocked, so when I go to my 
server's web server using its IP I get blocked, but when I go using my 
domain I'm able to browse it.

Now I'm strugging to get Tor client at office to connect to my Tor 
bridge at home. If I use|Bridge|(a obfuscated IP, not the 
current one) it fails as happens with most bridges on BridgeDB.

But when I use|Bridge hikari.mydomain.com:80|(which works if accessed 
from a browser on port 8080) I get|Error parsing Bridge address 
'hikari.mydomain.com:80'. Failed to parse/validate config: Bridge line 
did not parse.|

Any idea why it's not parsing domains on bridge setting?
