When choosing nodes to *use* exclusively, this line has to be added, in

StrictExitNodes 1
There's no such options right now.

There is, see http://www.torproject.org/tor-manual.html.en for details.

If it's StrictExitNodes option that your're talking, I think it only
applied when there's specific exit nodes with option ExitNodes. I'm not
sure if it's working with blacklist set by ExcludeNodes or ExcludeExitNodes.

BTW, there's a warn with StrictExitNodes 1

[warn] StrictExitNodes set, but no ExitNodes listed.

I was using Tor stable install (v0.2.0.30 (r15956)) & Vidalia 0.1.8
on win2k and ExcludeNodes does not appear to work.

(or-talk "TOR v0.2.0.30 (r15956) - ExcludeNodes appears to fail" August 25th 2008)

Maybe the problem is related.

Curiously, I have also seen three instances 4 hops circuits and a single instance of a 5 hop circuit built, according to vidalia's connection map. Also all 4 circuits had a a curious IP address target with a UID:443 port exit node, when I was not requesting any traffic!

Not sure quite what to make of it.

Am I trojaned, with a special version of TOR, that does 4 and 5 hop circuits when it dials home?
