Re: Directory servers for a subset of Tor routers

Thanks Comrade - so blocking connections from other countries...is 
that something that is built into Tor or would I need a 3rd party 
solution? I think i already saw how to prevent the dir server from 
advertising itself to the rest of the Tor network in the man pages 
(yeah, really wouldn't want to screw anyone else up) but not so 
sure on the geographical part.

Thanks again...
