ExitNodes {us}

Is no longer working for me after the new update. It seems like it works sometimes and doesn't sometimes. Each time the circuit gets rebuilt I end up in a non-US exit node. No one has been able to figure this out.

I checked the post here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/13422099/tor-strictexitnodes-is-not-working

I tried to add -f from the command prompt and point to the torrc file. It doesn't work, all it does is try to load that file in the browser.

    At least in your question you're missing a space between StrictNodes and 1. Is this just a transcription error? Dec 5 '15 at 19:46
  • Paste your full torrc if you can so I can help troubleshoot and update my answer below. Thanks Dec 5 '15 at 22:52

You need to make sure it is StrictNodes 1 (<-- With a space before the '1')

This is the relevant section in the Tor documentation: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en#StrictNodes


You must be sure that the following options are set :

GeoIPExcludeUnknown 1
StrictNodes 1
ExitNodes {us}
AllowSingleHopCircuits 0
EnforceDistinctSubnets 1
