I'd like to request help with an issue I'm having with Vidalia. I'm trying to run a Tor relay node via the graphical interface on Debian Wheezy. It does not connect automatically connect to the Tor Network at startup. It says "Vidalia was unable to authenticate to the Tor Software. (Control socket is not connected.) Please check your control port authentication settings."
In Settings, Tor Control is set to TCP at my IP:9050. The relay part (80) is also listed as one of the two ports allowed by my iptables configuration. So, I don't understand this issue.
Can somebody please help me? Thanks!!
