Dear friends,

I am uncuccessfully running a bridge that uses obfs4 as pluggable 
transport. (At least it should.)
Today I actually tried to connect to it and it is possible to connect 
to the bridge using the ORport.
But when I tried to start tor browser with this setting to use obfs4:

obfs4 12.345.67.89:1111 (only with the right numbers)

it got stuck at "establishing an encrypted network connection".
I checked on canyouseeme.org and both the vanilla ORport and the obfs4 
port seem to be accessible from outside.

My router is set to allow TCP and UDP on the port for obfs4.

What could be causing the problem?
