I'm currently using an exit node that's returning "TorEnd" as the

the problem to someone.

Your question really has no answer, since the Tor circuit that you just
used five nanoseconds ago might have already been closed (or simply not selected)
by the time you use Tor to access a service to look up the exit node it

Any HTTP request, or just HTTP requests to port 80? Perhaps this web page would work for you:


I'll make note of these URLs to test if I see it again. Shortly after seeing the error and realizing it wasn't a problem with the site itself, I tried going to http://ipid.shat.net/. Reloading that page gave me 3 different IPs, while reloading the problem site continued to give me the same TorEnd. As you said, the circuit changes, so I can't be sure anyway.

Interestingly, http://serifos.eecs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/ipaddr.pl? tor=1 currently reports that I'm coming from, which it claims isn't a Tor exit node. It is.
