I've set up a computer in my home just to run a relay. I have a fiber connection to my house and want to put it to good use so im trying to run tor. My server is currently running debian,(Ubuntu) as it is what im confortable with but i've also tried using FreeBSD as it is recomended for tor.
The problem im facing is that tor complains that the ORPort is unreachable. I've tried using a common port like 443, and the default, 9001. Nether of these worked as i had the same error comming up as before. The client is able to bootstrap to 100% but it fails in trying to validate my server is reachable.
I am currently behind NAT so the first thing i did was set up a port forward from external port 443 to internel port 443 on my computer. This did not result in a difference so i tried enabeling dmz so it would externally but im having no luck. I hope you guys might have a answer. Heres my torrc file:
change the nickname "myNiceRelay" to a name that you like
Nickname Brick ORPort 443 ExitRelay 0 SocksPort 0 Control Socket 0 # Change the email address below and be aware that it will be published Contact Info tor-operator@your-emailaddress-domain`
Thanks for the help in advance :)
