Re: error noted in

Hey everyone, I need some help...
I installed Tor on my SLES server. I looked at the tor.log.1 and it stated "client functionality is working". I obviously wanted to set up a server to help out, so I modified my torrc file and the torrc.log.1 file stated: "ORPOrt is reachable from the outside. Excellent. Publishing server descriptor. Performing bandwidth self-test...done. [warn] Your server xxxxx has not managed to confirm that its DirPort is reachable."

I figured I did something wrong, but I checked my router, ports forwarded correctly, firewall is also allowing ports. Weird part, i was getting all these messages (every 20 minutes or so) and they stopped. Today I find an empty log file, and the old one has been zipped and backed up. Im not sure if the application did this on its own.  The last [notice] I received states: Catching signal TERM, exiting cleanly. Almost sounds like everything is ok but:
Yesterday the server was on the list here: http://moria.seul.org:9032/tor/status/authority

Today it is not. I looked at the cached router list and last read/write history was at 4:21 this morning...

I just want to know if it is working fine or not. I haven't been able to get privoxy to work with my Suse!!! and I installed the Tor button on my firefox and it gives me a proxy error. (I am sure those two are related LOL, so I'm working on that) But I guess I don't want to blindly continue on this problem if my server really isn't up and running like I thought...please help!!!

indeed, unfortunately it's confusing to the uninitiated who have no reason to
suspect that their 'tor controller' has nothing to with their 'tor
