Re: Setting up private Tor network with the real one

In general, you can't, and don't want, different directory servers
telling you about different nodes. Imagine what would happen if one
directory server was compromised, and told you about a set of attacker

Now, one place where this setup becomes interesting is if you have a
separate network -- either the corporate internet, or some variation
of IP V8 (maybe a very large ISP, like China, decides to use their own
network numbering with a translating boarder). Then, you could have
two sets of directory authorities, for two sets of destination IP
ranges -- one set of directory authorities for these IP's, and a
different one for those IP's. Then, you might wind up building two
tunnels, one to get to the gateway, and a second to traverse the
second network on the other side.
