dr|z3d: finally got in contact with bja - he pointed out mibbit as another option in case of an oftc tor ban
FeasibilityStudy
oftc has already banned most tor nodes
MoiraA
hah!
mibbit has had to be banned in freenode
oh I apologise FeasibilityStudy
I had you klined as a spammer on our server
but if it's a tor IP it will be
FeasibilityStudy
MoiraA: why was i linked as a spammer?
MoiraA
atagar - do I appear as though I amm on tor?
         

FeasibilityStudy
yes you do here
MoiraA
I am trigger happy after staring at a server notice window solidly for 8 hours klining and watching our software catch a bot attack
given that I have not even got it running
much less put settings into xchat
that is extraordinary

weird
I am not an exit node
macosx does some funny stuff
so does xchat aqua
that really is incredible
I have not got the program running
nor proxy settings in xchat
or this place set up to use tor

MoiraA: lots of people in this room have your same IP

MoiraA
my IP?????
they dont
not one

ccp0101
Hello? I setup a relay yesterday. I failed to log into my server though ssh today, probably due to lack of bandwidth or too much connections tor has opened. I wanna know is there any way to limit tor's max connection count rather than limiting bandwidth?
anybody here?
weasel
not directly, no.
tor needs quite a few connections to talk to other relays
ccp0101
then i guess i have to limit my bandwidth.
weasel
if your virtual server (I'm guessing) can't handle that maybe being a bridge is another option
ccp0101
yeah, it's a virtual server, with unlimited bandwitdth.
Sebastian
ccp0101: the problem is that some vserver software implement some quite strict limits on connections available to processes. Some do that so much that you cannot even run a normal relay.
No matter how much you limit your bandwidth
I had to shut down one of my nodes and make it a bridge because of that.
(and cancelled my contract as soon as possible, of course ;)

gangil
hi , I am interested to work for tor as a student in GSOC 2010 , any suggestion where should I start apart form the tor website?
Sebastian
hey gangil, great to hear you're interested. It is a good idea to hang out on IRC and familiarize yourself with the community, as well as joining the various public mailing lists to get an idea of what is going on.
The Tor Project is more than the tor software, so there might be a few interesting things in our svn or git repositories
In the past, students who integrated with the community as early as possible were generally successful
phobos
torproject.org/volunteer is a fine place to start
gangil
hm..I should start with the source code then
Sebastian
except we need to clean it up ;)
phobos
i cleaned up the volunteer page on my last flight
Sebastian
ah
cool
gangil: Just to mention it, there's no guarantee that Tor will make it into this year's gsoc.
gangil
Sebastian, ok , I would really feel happy if I could work for tor , as I want to work on projects related to network security ..
(Action) is happy to see that all the source code is in C
Sebastian, are there any junior developer / beginner tasks out there ?
Sebastian
gangil: I just like to hear about issues on irc or the bugtracker or or-talk and jump right in.
gangil: I'm afraid we don't keep a list of easy tasks around for people to eventually fix, we just fix them right there
the harder ones remain longer ;)
gangil
:)
Sebastian
I think looking at recent git history might help you a bit.
gangil
is "master" directory the "trunk" one ( I am familiar with svn terms) . This is the main one right ? http://gitweb.torproject.org//tor.git
Sebastian
yeah, that's the main one
master is like trunk in svn
but you might want to learn a bit of git :)
gangil
Sebastian, one more thing is there a overview of source code anywhere like documentation about it , likw what's where in those files in the source code?
as can be found in some of the open source projects
Sebastian
you can use doxygen to maybe get a broad overview, but other than that, we try to name the files so they make sense. Have you read the HACKING document?
gangil
reading , thanks
seems informative
Sebastian
gangil: I usually don't know exactly where a function is defined, I use git grep to find out. ;)
gangil
eclipse has a better option for searching in code directory , just need to do ctrl - H , to search for anything in the code :)
Sebastian
use whatever works best for you.
gangil
:)

Hello
ccp0101
hi guys. An idea came up. Would it be good to run tor in particular time. Like everyday 10p.m. ~ 8a.m? How will it affect to run and stop tor relay frequently.
Sebastian
ccp0101: Tor relays are most useful when they run for a long period of time without interruption, but if that doesn't work, they're still useful if they run for at least 5 hours. So running a relay from 10pm to 8am would be awesome.
ccp0101
thx. somehow even i limit its bandwidth, it just eats up all resources. so this might be the best way.
waltman
ccp0101: I've been running a tor bridge with an accounting limit that gets about 8-10 hours of usage when it's busy. It seems to stop and restart just fine.

formalist
hagh. more room for bridge nodes and elite proxies.
_lance_
hello. i've got orport and orlistenport set, and the correct ip is shown on launch of tor, but my logs show that tor is checking for open ports on the wrong ip.
which doesn't have anything bound to it
running 0.2.1.22
Sebastian
can you show me your torrc?
_lance_
sure, let me pastebin it
Sebastian
along with your notice level logs, that'd be great.
_lance_
torrc: http://pastebin.com/d15d9b057
notices.log: http://pastebin.com/d3238a6ef
Sebastian
ah.
_lance_
i left Address unset..
Sebastian
The easy fix would be to set Address.
_lance_
okay, i'll do that
Sebastian
I don't think it's a Tor bug, the *ListenAddress options aren't there to interfere with IP address guessing.
_lance_
yeah, makes sense. based on the iptables comments it sounds like they expect *ListenAddress to be an internal ip
setting Address worked.
thanks. :)
Sebastian
you're welcome :)
and big thanks for running a node!
_lance_
happy to help. :) later!
