I am trying to contribute to Tor Network by running a non-exit relay on my PC. Via the status window, I already received the comment saying that my relay is reachable:
Jan 17 01:32:13.420 [Notice] Self-testing indicates your ORPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent. Publishing server descriptor. Jan 17 01:32:14.830 [Notice] Self-testing indicates your DirPort is reachable from the outside. Excellent. Jan 17 01:32:16.045 [Notice] Performing bandwidth self-test...done.
However, later I received this message:
Jan 17 01:43:09.372 [Notice] Your DNS provider gave an answer for "uofdrs2ok67ar.net", which is not supposed to exist. Apparently they are hijacking DNS failures. Trying to correct for this. We've noticed 1 possibly bad address so far. Jan 17 01:34:02.394 [Notice] Your DNS provider has given "126.96.36.199" as an answer for 6 different invalid addresses. Apparently they are hijacking DNS failures. I'll try to correct for this by treating future occurrences of "188.8.131.52" as 'not found'.
So is it because I am setting up Norton ConnectSafe DNS in my Router? If it is the reason, I am really sad that I cannot run Tor cos I need to keep Norton ConnectSafe DNS on to keep my Kids from bad websites out there on the Internet. Thank you so much for reading my question.
