I'm relatively new to Tor, having read about it in my newspaper so I thought I'd give it a go. Having read about relays and bridges and so forth I thought I'd try it out.
I managed to get a relay running by editing the Torrc file like so,
BandwidthRate 204800 ContactInfo firstname.lastname@example.org DataDirectory C:\Users\Martin\Desktop\Tor Browser\Data\Tor ExitPolicy reject *:* GeoIPFile C:\Users\Martin\Desktop\Tor Browser\Data\Tor\geoip GeoIPv6File C:\Users\Martin\Desktop\Tor Browser\Data\Tor\geoip6 Nickname HAVANASUN ORPort 443
Then I tried to set it up as a bridge. I entered these lines instead which I found on-line.
SocksPort 0 ORPort 443 BridgeRelay 1 Exitpolicy reject *:*
Won't connect! I'm sure it's something simple but to be honest I'm not all that sharp with computers.
Can some kind soul help me out please?
PS, I'm using the Tor Browser, not Vidalia.
