Vidalia log errors


2 years ago
On a previous version of Tor Bundle, I was running a non-exit relay. Noticed an announcement there is a new version available ... torbrowser-install-3.5_en-US.exe. To my surprise, it does not come with Vidalia and I did not know how to set up my relay without it (Vidalia). I went and got vidalia-standalone-02.21-win32-1_en-US.exe and configured it for the relay, . pointed it to torrc, and set it up to run as the previous bundle does.

Everything 'looks' like it is running right except the Vidalia Advanced log which presents as follows (in a loop):

DG00R1F1 is my computer name.

Any and all help is appreciated in advance.

I don't know what causes that, but you can set your ip address manually in torrc, which I assume will avoid the problem. I believe the command is simply "address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx". Of course if your ip address changes frequently, this could pose a problem.

The previous version of Tor Bundle did not do this. I have a utility which claims to allow me a static IP. I have not used it yet, but ....
I will look into it and put a static IP in torrc if possible.

This thread is still open to anyone with comments, suggestions, advice. Thank you for yours.

Edit:
Could someone please explain these log items???
