I just set up a non-exit relay and it seems to work. I just want to make sure that I really have a non-exit relay. In the torrc file I set the option ExitPolicy to reject *:*.

Does this make a non-exit relay? I thought so, but I'm not sure.

The proper configuration line for a non-exit relay is

ExitPolicy reject *:*

Since that's what you're using, you should be fine.

  • I wrote ., but the * disappeared. But thanx!

You can look up your own relay on Atlas and check your Exit Policy and flags.

And yes, rejecting everything, like you do, makes you a non-exit.
