Perplexing Tor server issues

Hi all.

My Tor server set-up:

WinXP (SP2)
Privoxy 3.0.3
Earthlink ADSL

I seem to be seeing an *excessive* number of log entries of the form:

Sep 14 16:03:27:562 [Notice] connection_ap_expire_beginning(): We tried
for 15 seconds to connect to '[scrubbed]' using exit 'cbadhjkssdhjbc'.
Retrying on a new circuit.  

in addition to:

Sep 14 16:10:47:375 [Warning] second_elapsed_callback(): Your server
( has not managed to confirm that its ORPort is
reachable. Please check your firewalls, ports, address, /etc/hosts
file, etc.

Any ideas? I configured the Tor Server to have an exit node (port 80),
server port 9001, update IP automatically, Bandwidth Limit Rates:
(2048-6048), Accept * 80. I'm currently running the 'personal firewall'
that ships with XP as well as 'McAfee Personal Firewall Plus'. Do I
need to explicitly open port 9001(?) If so, can someone provide a brief
'run through'?
