Hello, and thanks for the feedback. It is much appreciated.
The object of this web page is indeed to make it as easy as possible
to get a tor server or client up and running as easily as possible.
Of course, you can run a client out of the box, but running a server
needs a bit more configuring. I am trying to make it as easy as
and the least intimidating as possible so that we can encourage people
run more tor servers to help out the network.
I take your point, Steve, about perhaps phrasing the server?/client?
in a different way. Does anyone else agree or disagree that this would
easier to understand for the average user?
Also. I could easily include logging, but do you think the average
user will look at tor log files? Remember, this page is aimed at
non-technical users up and running as quickly and easily as possible.
I welcome your thoughts,
