I have been trying to set up a relay from a laptop running Ubuntu 16.04 connected to the internet through a BT Home Hub 6, and am having a problem reported as being with Port 9001 not being reachable.
What am I doing wrong, or what settings in my torrc file, or on the Home Hub 6 setup, do I have to add, delete or change?
Or am I trying to do the impossible, and should forget about setting up any or all of a bridge relay, a full relay or an exit relay?
The active commands in my torrc file are shown below.

The message in the notices.log file ends with
