Tor Server on Client Mode

The client Mode is used on a "empty" torrc File!

  • To test it rename the File /etc/tor/torrc org and create a "empty" torrc file!
  • now restart Tor with, and test with Tor Monitor Tool "arm" (of package tor-arm)
  • the arm Monitor must show running on "no relaying mode"
$sudo service tor restart 


  • Tor on Relaying Mode but NO EXIT!

edit the /etc/tor/torrc search line:

#ExitPolicy reject *:* 

change to:

ExitPolicy reject *:* 

This prevent you from being abused!
