I set up a bridge with obfs4 and successfully tested it with the Tor Browser. It has been running for over a month now and still has no users. The normal relay I set up parallel on another server is doing fine so far with a consensus weight of 568. Now I wonder whether I did something wrong and whether my bridge is actually going to be used some time. Thanks in advance :)
Have you ensured that the
PublishServerDescriptor setting in
torrc has been set to
By setting it to
bridge your relay will publish its descriptor
to the bridge authorities making your bridge visible to other users.
Vice versa, if you set
0 your relay will not publish anywhere. In other words your bridge will be private.
Please refer to bridges-spec.txt to find out more about the configuration of bridges.
