I have tried to create a private Tor network by using Chutney and Raspberry pis. I generated torrc and certificate files in chutney for a basic minimum network (4 Authorities, 1 Client and 1 Exit). I installed tor individually to each raspberry pi and then replaced the torrc file and "ALL" the files in the "keys" folder in the DataDirectory. I replaced the fingerprint files as well. The network boostrap without a problem. However, the connections are not created due to a TLS handshake error.

Following is the error msg received from one of the Directory Authorities.

Jan 27 17:24:18.595 [warn] Tried connecting to router at 192.168.0.15:443, but RSA + ed25519 identity keys were not as expected: wanted 3A0648D85696EA7B3A6F3075FF21100DFCDA720A + B93a37ZgkrhKqvkNr3IqahNSZMWgZDwSgAOTuaV0eh8 but got 4E7E942815916E52366B55D756AB1E57D0A4EEE7 + mmVeMHjlfapT+wY2OcUtXrKF4Ttfyw0HJJA3J4Sqoe4.

Following is a error msg received from the Tor client. It does not bootstrap properly.

I understand that the reason for this should be a mismatch of the fingerprints or keys that I have copied. But I am unable to figure out which. I would appreciate any help here.

Thank you
