ok good that was actually my other question, why run exit enclave if you run a hidden service.

i guess you answered my question.  they service different purpose.

are there no security-related concerns of running both ways?

(actually three ways; regular i-net, hidden service & exit enclave, all on same server for same site content)

only problem is docs make it sound like you have to be more careful setting up for exit enclave

actually docs say this about exit enclave "A great idea but not such a great implementation"
