i've recently decided to support Tor throught a new relay, then i taked one of my server with debian 8 and follow the steps on torproject website after installing the most recently tor i've edited the torrc file uncommenting this:
ORPort 9001 DirPort 9030 Exitpolicy accept *:* Nickname RELAYNAME ContactInfo INFO@RELAYNAME BandwidthRate 60 MBytes BandwidthBurst 60 MBytes
after that i simply restarted the Tor service and checked the log:
Oct 18 19:24:12.000 [notice] Bootstrapped 85%: Finishing handshake with first hop Oct 18 19:24:12.000 [notice] Bootstrapped 90%: Establishing a Tor circuit Oct 18 19:24:13.000 [notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working. Oct 18 19:24:13.000 [notice] Bootstrapped 100%: Done Oct 18 19:24:13.000 [notice] Now checking whether ORPort x.x.x.x:9001 and DirPort x.x.x.x:9030 are reachable... (this may take up to 20 minutes -- look for log messages indicating success) Oct 18 19:24:14.000 [notice] Self-testing indicates your ORPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent.

Oct 18 19:24:15.000 [notice] Performing bandwidth self-test...done.
And after atleast 45mins my relay appeared on Atlas, now i've tried to connect throught my server to Tor simply adding
EntryNodes RELAYNAME, but Tor cannot connect to Tor network and still remain in
