Re: Problems starting relay
I'm not mirroring the directory server (yet) so I assume I don't need
to worry about the directory port.
I did enable UPnP on my router (temporarily) and tried the Test button
in the Vidalia Relay setup page, and it reported 'Success'. However, on
examining the Port Forwarding page, there was then no sign of a rule
for Tor or Vidalia.
I disabled UPnP after that.
I'm using OSX 10.3.9.
I went into the Firewall section of 'Sharing' and added a rule for Tor:
"This is your firewall entry for Tor: it is currently on and all TCP
network traffic on port(s) 9001 is being let through".
Yet still I get
"[Warning] Your server (xx.xx.xx.xx:9001) has not managed to confirm
that its ORPort is reachable. Please check your firewalls, ports,
address, /etc/hosts file, etc"
My Port Forwarding rule (added manually) says
Port Start 9001
Port End 9001
Port Map 9001"
Is there a way I can check the Port Forwarding independently of Tor?

Then all you need to do to run a relay is configure one via the Vidalia
"Setup Relaying" button in the Vidalia Control Panel.
Tor will generally figure out the rest.
If your router supports upnp, Vidalia will attempt to configure any
forwarding for you.
If not, then yes, you need to port forward your orport and dirport from
the external router to your machine. If for some reason you use the
firewall, you'll also need to open the tcp ports for the orport and
dirport. If you are using 10.5 (leopard), when you configure a relay
through vidalia, the system should ask you to allow or deny the correct
The easiest next step may be to start with a fresh torrc and let
do the work of configuring the relay.
