Re: [tor-talk] Hidden Services - Access control.
In the man page description of
"HiddenServiceAuthorizeClient auth-type client-name,client-name,..."
"Valid client names are 1 to 16 characters long and only
use characters in A-Za-z0-9+-_ (no spaces)."
but it doesn't say where to find the client-name.
Is it a hash ? How can I create it ?
Is it a nickname for the client ? Shall I define it
in the "torrc" file ?
