Private Tor Network for Testing

Dear Torizens,

I am doing a research project on mesh networking, where I will be using Tor as the application layer to route data and ad-hoc networking for the physical layer. I am trying to set up Tor on a private lan, but I've run into some problems. I set the torrc to allow private connections, but when the Tor server tries to resolve its IP address, it sees that it only has a local address (192.168.*) and refuses to load. Is there some way to get around this or disable this check? I am using the vidalia bundle on OSX and then "just plain Tor" on Ubuntu x64. Any help is appreciated. Also, if you've sucessfully run Tor over a private network or have some experience in it, any related advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Comrade Ringo Kamens
