Its an good idia to stop my runnig server before provider cuts my internetsession with
cronjob ( /etc/init.d/tor stop )
an start it new after reconnect and ip-change?


Hello Bernd,

Tor detects a changed IP address and will republish it's descriptor with your new IP. The Tor clients that are connected to your server will detect that it isn't reachable on the old IP and they will seek a new Tor router to make a new circuit.
