This question already has an answer here:
I want to specify an
ExitNode that is near me, so I looked at OnionView and found the IP address of the one I want to use. What is the syntax to put in torrc?
The first 2 show the "Connecting to the tor network" dialog forever and the last one crashes Tor. (I tried several exitnodes and they all do the same)
I realize I am not nearly as anonymous if I do this and this is sort of unorthodox, but I'm trying to test some things and cannot find documentation anywhere on how to do this.
