Re: How can a node become an entry guard?

The information helps a lot. New questions :).

What is the algorithm for generating the file "cached-routers" for a Tor
client? Why cannot I find a running router's information in this file
while I can find it in the folder "cached-status"?

It may take a long time for a new router (or a restarting router) to
appear in "cached-routers". Is there a way to force new router
information into "cached-routers"?

Thanks a lot!
