First of all, forgive me for my bad English. I don't speak the language fluently. But I hope you can understand.

Into my torrc file, I added the following lines:

ExitPolicy accept *:20-21     # FTP

With this configuration am I really acting as an exit node? I have a 50 MB download and 30 MB of upload. I want the Tor network to make full use of my connection. I don't want to limit anything for the other Tor users.

Is my configuration is correct?

Thank you all!

    I voted up this question because Tor needs all the exit nodes it can get. In my view, anyone who is asking how they can do it better deserves an up-vote! And the question will result in answers that improve the likelihood of a functioning node. – user02814 Jan 20 '17 at 12:55

Well, it should be fine - don't forget to add ORPort and DirPort and make them reachable from the outer world also. And I have some TCP ports suggestions to open also, they are:

  • IRC used to utilize also ports 7000-7010. I have seen it on DALNet and others
  • XMPP is a very common thing today, so open 5222,5223,5269,5298,8010 - they are all important for it, not 5222 and 5223 as it is in your config
  • Socks long-known port 1080 is quite a common one

UPDATE: additional torrc lines

ExitPolicy accept *:1080
ExitPolicy accept *:7000-7010
ExitPolicy accept *:5269
ExitPolicy accept *:5298
ExitPolicy accept *:8010
ORPort 443
DirPort 80
ClientOnly 0
  • Thank you for giving attention to my question! You can explain to me how I can include ORPort and DirPort lines? I'm not very good at handling this type of configuration. Thank you all so much! I want all users of Tor can use my connection as an exit node without imposing any restrictions. – jjrtiago Jan 21 '17 at 11:43
  • Just add lines ORPort <port> and same for DirPort. The ip address is the one you're binding Tor to. If you have an external Internet address right on the machine, then it should be OK. But if you're behind the nat, i.e. you have a home router that receives the IP and internet from your ISP and your tor node is on a LAN-connected machine, use a static LAN address and put <LAN ip>:<port> instead of just port number to both directives and route TCP ports on your router to that LAN machine. ClientOnly 0 is good as well - just to have it in config. Feel free to ask! – Alexey Vesnin Jan 21 '17 at 12:50
  • Thanks again for your attention to my question. Could you post an example of how I may be adding these lines in my torrc file? I get my IP from my ISP. – jjrtiago Jan 22 '17 at 21:10
  • do you have your PC/server hosting Tor plugged to your ISP directly or your ISP link is going to your home router and the tor host is behind that router? – Alexey Vesnin Jan 22 '17 at 21:12
  • My PC connects in Tor directly by my ISP. My connection had 50Mbps for download. I did an upgrade! Now sane 70Mbps to download. My connection is optical fiber. I want to make all my bandwidth for users of the Tor network. Thus I believe that I will be contributing actively to help people from oppressive Governments worldwide. I'm a big fan of the principles of the Tor. Thanks again! And once again I apologize for my bad English. – jjrtiago Jan 23 '17 at 22:13
