When the Linksys box passes the connection on, what IP address does your
Tor server think it's getting a connection from?

We've got a check in there to make sure we don't consider ourselves
reachable too eagerly -- if it's a connection from a local IP address,
we don't buy it. But perhaps this is biting us in the case of people who

Can you look at info-level or debug-level logs and hunt through until it
