hi, want to donate a little bandwidth to the project, but i fail miserably in doing so. installed the tor, tor-geoid packets for ubuntu. edited the torrc, looked at the log files, but server is simply not showing up on http://torstatus.blutmagie.de/ or any other overviews...
what could I have done wrong?
atagar
Masee: it takes a while (couple hours) to show up
Masee
atagar, ok. will give it a couple more hours.
velope
Masee: does your tor logfile say that your ORport is reachable?
arma
masee: are you on a cablemodem or dsl connection? if so, you may need to set up port forwarding.
fuzi0n
anyone here tried Amnesia live cd?
Goldstein
fuzi0n: i forget
Masee
velope, the log file says the following: "bootstrapping 100% done, checking orport, dirport... orport is reachable, dirport is reachable. bandwith self-test.. done." i found no errors or warnings, just a couple of notices.
arma, it's a dedicated box and the iptables list is empty (iptables -l). i tried reaching the ports from outside and it seems fine, maybe - like atagar suggested - it just takes a couple more hours. not sure, because never used tor before :)
velope
looks good ... next time to check is at the beginning of the hour, when the directory will have been updated.
         

Masee
ok
Akira
(Action) still needs hooking up with a new private bridge. :( [in China]
arma
akira: do you know anybody outside of china who can run a bridge for you? that seems like the best answer at this point.
we have some new ideas for how to get more bridges and make them harder for china to learn, but in the current round, china is clearly winning
masee: if you tell me a nickname / ip address, i'll look up how it's doing
california
could anyone please explain how tor became lightning fast all of the sudden?
UsedSockPup
hi
I can't get tor to work with lucid lynx on ubuntu
i follow the instructions on ubuntu forums
and nothing happens
california
UsedSockPup: those are old
UsedSockPup: use the instructions on www.torproject.org
UsedSockPup
i just did that
but the
polypy
stuff isn't working
hold on
ok
yeah i did polipo
and then when I launched vidalia
it still says that tor exited
i have tor button on firefox
california
UsedSockPup: you need to kill tor before starting vidalia
UsedSockPup
how do i do that?
i didn't think it was running
california
open system monitor
and find it
then right click it
and kill
UsedSockPup
ok did that
wasn't running
I get Vidalia detected that the Tor software exited unexpectedly.

what the hell is it on 0.0.0.0:9030 for?
i think you need to wait around until someone else comes along
UsedSockPup
ok I am running ubuntu
it worked fine until I upgraded
to the latest OS version
california
ask in #ubuntu on irc.freenode.net as well
i don't know why no one is here
UsedSockPup
strange
california
i dont even see users leaving and entering like usual
wtf is this
UsedSockPup
i hear that on freenode
that there was a huge netsplit
FloodBot3 called the ops in #ubuntu-ops-monitor (mass join (1255 users, 0 overflows, 1255 limit))
FloodBot2 called the ops in #ubuntu-ops-monitor (mass join (1255 users, 0 overflows, 1255 limit))
FloodBot1 called the ops in #ubuntu-ops-monitor (mass join (1257 users, 0 overflows, 1257 limit))
FloodBot4 called the ops in #ubuntu-ops-monitor (mass join (1255 users, 0 overflows, 1255 limit))
yeah
I think there is an attack going on on some networks
california
UsedSockPup: what networks?
besides freenode
UsedSockPup
well probably this one and freenode
usually attacks hit several
at the same time
california
