My little Tor node: Alive again!

Submitted by gwolf on Mon, 06/16/2014 - 19:54

So, after writing my last blog post in frustration, several people knowing their way around Tor better than me wrote that I should just configure my machine not to be an exit relay, but a middle relay or a bridge.

So, I set it up to be a bridge about five days ago. And, as they pointed out, I have not experienced any problems.

Interesting: The traffic pattern is very different. Compare:

Traffic pattern as a bridge:

Anyway — I'm happy to have Lobazal back online!
