UpDate:,,, Some Success, Server appears up, with one problem..

Hello TOR people, Yay! I did finally get server up, but all is not completely good: Anyone interested please note log entries.Thanks for advice and support.
I hope to have it working perfectly soon. Am not sure exactly what to think of entries below:
Oct 29 03:31:32.969 [Notice] Tor v0.2.0.7-alpha (r11572). This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Linux i686)
Oct 29 03:31:32.975 [Notice] Initialized libevent version 1.1a using method epoll. Good.

Oct 29 03:31:33.142 [Notice] Opening Control listener on
Oct 29 03:31:46.978 [Notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working.
Oct 29 03:32:19.088 [Notice] Self-testing indicates your DirPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent.
Oct 29 03:32:45.443 [Notice] Performing bandwidth self-test...done.
Oct 29 03:33:41.789 [Warning] eventdns: All nameservers have failed
Oct 29 03:33:41.872 [Notice] eventdns: Nameserver is back up
Oct 29 03:33:46.790 [Warning] eventdns: All nameservers have failed
Oct 29 03:33:46.856 [Notice] eventdns: Nameserver is back up

  I can see from the Bandwith Graph that some traffic does flow through, though not a lot.  Is this normal? Is it OK that I get a "nameserver" error and how can that problem be solved?? The listed back up is my normal DNS at comcast.

Hello Pei Hanru, experienced TOR users
  I have checked Linksys doc's and I think they were helpful. At present, I think I need to assign a static IP to my RHEL system behind NAT firewall. That seems to include two extra assigned IP numbers, like, Then I can use port forwarding set-up on NAT router. I bet this is elementary school for many of you, it took a little while for me :),,  All I need now is the procedure to assign a static IP on RHEL. I am checking that now,, And, Hope it all Works! In any case, thanks to people interested, and additional comments welcome.

Unfortunately, you are doing worse...

What you should do is first figuring out the *actual* private IP address
of your Linux box, then forwarding port 9001 and port 9030 (or port
range 9001-9030 if you like) to *that* address, rather than forwarding
the same port range to three distinct addresses.

It's a good idea to reread port forwarding part of Linksys manual carefully.
