Problem: Can't get tor run due to it not resolving or understanding that the IP address is a dyndns one
I've installed Tor on a local server at my home running Fedora Core 3. I've edited the torrc files to act only as a server. I use DynDNS to maintain a consistant name resolution. In the
notices.log I get this message repeatedly every few minutes.
Jul 29 10:35:30.648 [warn] second_elapsed_callback(): Your server (_my ip address_:9030) has not managed to confirm that its DirPort is reachable. Please check your firewalls, ports, address, /etc/hosts file, etc.
Jul 29 10:43:52.679 [notice] connection_edge_process_end_not_open(): Have tried resolving or connecting to address '[scrubbed]' at 3 different places. Giving up.
I'm sure that I have forwarded the correct ports through my firewall to the tor server. Here is what my torrc file looks like:
Nickname _my server nickname_ [properly registered]
This should be pretty standard from what I understand. I even used the web based wizard to try and make the torrc file for me and I'm getting the same error.
On a windows machine, I can run the tor client and it works just fine as a server but I haven't been able to get it running on linux. Other people have had this problem as well but I haven't seen a resolution. Can someone shed any insight?
