Re: Hidden service behind NAT?

Yes, I reach that hidden service, and it takes about 15 sec.  I left my hidden sercice, a webserver, ran overnight and it still didn't work.  BTW, the browser client timeout quicker than 15 sec and privoxy gave me a 503 error.
I'll be patiently waiting for software updates for TOR.  Freenet, i2p, MUTE, etc are all impractical in terms of speed.
By hardware store I mean shops where you can get nuts and bolts (Home Depot), and they sell wireless routers too.
Though I won't try hidden services for the time being, I have a question though.  How can you keep the same hostname, when you have to close TOR and restart?

If you can get to http://6sxoyfb3h2nvok2d.onion/tor/
but not to your hidden service, then I'd suggest leaving it
running and checking it tomorrow. If you can't get to the service
above, then perhaps your configuration is screwed up somehow.

I plan to make hidden services not suck as much in the next release,
but first we need to get all these other bugs sorted out. :)

You don't need to be routable or have any sort of public IP to run
a hidden service. If you can get out to the Internet somehow, you can
offer a hidden service.
