When I click on
Vidalia/Tor to connect, I usually watch the message log as it does so. In the
past, it would go through all the handshakes, etc. lots of information and
such, etc. but now or maybe just lately, it connects rather quickly and the
message log only lists this:
NoticeÂÂ Tor v0.2.1.24 This is experimental software.
Do not rely.......
NoticeÂÂ Initialized libevent version.....
NoticeÂÂ Opening Socks listener on.......
NoticeÂÂ Opening Control listener on......
It doesn't mention handshakes,
bootstrapping, the number of circuits available, connecting comments or a
percentage of what is needed nor the "I have enough to build a
circuit" and have done so.
In Message Log, Basic
it only says, The Tor Software is running.
Nothing about "I
can now configure apps to surf the internet.
Is this variation in the
Message Log information normal, safe and generally ok?
