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

You might also try the following

- look at /etc/resolv.conf to see what are the nameservers listed there

- do some nslookup (e.g. nslookup www.google.com) and see what is the "server" used to get the answer

- increase Tor log level to "info" and have a look at all the log entries coming from "eventdns". Your Tor's dns seems to give up after 2 minutes, so I suppose there are more lower level events before.

- look at dns queries with tcpdump to see what's happening in the background
tcpdump -n udp port 53

Can you try pining the DNS backup to see if you can reach it?

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

 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.

peace, Algenon

Hello Michael Holstein and other interested people
I thought I had accomplished port forwarding (see attached file) but
did not succeed. After checking with Linksys support site I am going to
try a new apporach. Will study the doc's from Linksys, if anyone has
experience with this please let me know.
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.
