I followed this post:


to create a local lan website with ubuntu.

But After I configurated and restarted the tor service.

No hostname file was created.

I am now in China.

And some outgoing connections maybe blocked.

Is it a possible reason why I can't get the hostname?

How can I determine the reason why I can get the hostname?

Can you reach your server locally?
You said that there is no hostname file created. Is there any key created? If isn't you probably screwed up try execute: "sudo tor" it will give you an error messages unlike if you run it as a service.
Can you try use tor as a proxy? (this can determine if your connection is censored)
