Re: [Fwd: (Probably) a known problem?] - cant run a relay node

Hash: SHA1

Thanks for the response. I understand. Below, you will find the copy of the
Vidalia generated torrc.

The problem is occurring on a system running MS Windows XP SP2.

Note that prior to the upgrade from to I had no problems. The
problems started occurring as soon as I started Tor again via Vidalia after the
upgrade. Also note that I do not have any problems running the Tor client.


torrc from Document and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Vidalia
# This file was generated by Tor; if you edit it, comments will not be preserved
# The old torrc file was renamed to torrc.orig.1 or similar, and Tor will ignore it

# If set, Tor will accept connections from the same machine (localhost only)
# on this port, and allow those connections to control the Tor process using
# the Tor Control Protocol (described in control-spec.txt).
ControlPort 9051
# Where to send logging messages.  Format is minSeverity[-maxSeverity]
# (stderr|stdout|syslog|file FILENAME).
