This looks like you are trying to run a server, but your server can't
lookup it's own hostname in DNS.

And *this* looks like the only address Tor could find is a private
address on the 192.168.0.x private network.

To be a server, Tor needs to have a public IP and know about it.  You
should set your public Aadress in options->Address, and make sure port
forwarding is working.  See
