Re: torcp problem

You've misunderstood and I should have been more clear.

I sent the email as I assumed that you might have changed the Control Port as well as the ORPort (which is what I had done when I manually edited the torrc file). Assuming that you changed the ControlPort you'd have to change it in both the GUI & the torrc file. If you *didn't* initially change the control port through the torrc file, leave TorCP at its default value (i.e. ignore my initial recommendation).

The ORPort, DirPort & Control Port are all different settings and not directly related to each other. The Control Port is used by TorCP to control Tor.

So the "ORPort" in torrc and the "Control Port" in the GUI should be the
same port?  I set them both to 7001, restarted--the onion had a red/white
check on it for a sec, then it went back to an onion with no check.  I
tested the browser and no connection.  Or did I misunderstand?
