Re: Installation problem (fingerprint, could not bind to port 9050)

Check to ensure Tor isn't already running, or simply reboot the computer to be doubly sure.

Upon installing and a running the latest tor server (OSX 10.4), I get the following message in notices.log:

Tor also fails to create a fingerprint file in /Library/Tor/var/lib/ tor.

Note that I uncommented the following lines in the torrc file:

ORPort 9001
DirPort 9030
SocksPort 9050

Port forwarding is enabled for all of the above ports. The server is visible to the world through dyndns.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hanno
