Re: My tor exit node is STILL gone from the node list

Hash: SHA1

thus Alexandru Cezar spake:
| Hi list,
| I am still struggling to get my server back on the list of Tor nodes.
For several months it
| was among the top 5 nodes, pumping 15TB a month. I am paying a lot of
money for that machine,
| and I don't see why it just doesn't work any more.
| Let me reiterate what's happening: Since April, the node disappears
from the node list after a
| few hours of running. I have tried to change exit policies, node name,
node keys, ports and IP
| (within the same subnet). After the IP change the node was listed (and
used) for several hours
| before it vanished. There's nothing about in the log file.
| It seems as if the node is unreachable from some of the authority
servers, but I have no idea
| what to do about that. My ISP says that routing is fine and everything
should work as
| expected. I don't understand why the node stays listed for a few hours
before disappearing.
| Can someone please help me get this >100EUR/mnth node up again?
| Information about the node:
| Current IP (previously
| Nickname kyirong2 (previously kyirong)
| Fingerprint D3EB 3132 99A0 082A 4A4E 10E0 EB75 8E4F 0163 F4F0
| (Old fp: A8BD 32A9 C2F2 0C4F 8ED2 C26C E477 0A24 85E3 CD22)
| Tor Debian
| DirPort 80, ORPort 8080

Hi again,

besides the routing stuff I saw that on the mentioned IP (see above)
there's a nice disclaimer-like website that impresses me. I'm still not
sure whether to pimp my node to be an exit node or not (due to the
supressing that happens here in Germany). However, this suits me well.
Is this a usual practice for TOR admins, and if yes, is there a
multilingual approach?
