[tor-talk] NT Service installation does not handle ``bridge relay'' option in torrc file


I'm trying to run a Tor bridge relay. I added following lines to the torrc file:

SocksPort 0
    ORPort 993
    BridgeRelay 1
    Exitpolicy reject *:*

then run tor in normal mode (not as a NT service), everything works
fine, I can telnet this bridge from another computer by:
telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 993

But when I try to run Tor bridge as a NT service,
c:\tor> tor --service start
the prompts says the service started successfully, local tor port 9050
also seems works fine.

But I can not telnet it from another computer, telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
993 will return a timeout error.

I am using
c:\tor> tor --version
[notice] Tor v0.2.3.4-alpha (git-5f4f727d58daa194). This is
experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity. (Running on Windo
ws XP Service Pack 3 [workstation])
Tor version (git-5f4f727d58daa194).

Please help
Thanks in advance.
