Then why do my connections always time out? It is virtually impossible
to send or receive via those two ports via Tor. I am very willing to try
other things, but even with a connection time out of 10 minutes it still
times out. It might eventually find one that works, but if I can test
that before hand, I could limit the exit servers to once that work and
that would save me lot of waiting around.
