Re: UTC & increased anonymity for client/node & user

I had issues with suse linux where tor would NOT operate at all without using UTC! Directories were always 8 hours off, and thus it wouldn't use any directory info and thus no circuits! This is just my experience though, and why I use UTC only, plus HW sync.

Can Tor function properly as a client and/or node if I
set my system's time to UTC?

Sure.  As long as the time is correct tor doesn't care which TZ it's
running in.
