Re: Orbot relay error

This is a bag of curiosities... first, you shouldn't have any issue
acting as a relay with a non-rooted device. The port you are trying to
open is high enough, and there are no iptables or other root related
permissions required for this capability.

The message that stands out for me is:

"Unable to stat resolver configuration in '/etc/resolv.conf': No such
file or directory"

Perhaps the ReachableAddresses setting somehow stops the check for
resolve.conf? I also need to verify whether it is standard or not for
Android to have a resolv.conf in that location.

I will do some testing on my Nexus and a Motorola Droid (Milestone) and
see what I find.
