Re: [tor-talk] sadly have to shut down my tor relay after less then 24 hours



Keeping an eye on things. Support asked me how I would prevent the copyright material from being accessed or even gotten to on the server. I gave them something about firewalls and keeping an eye on ports and blocking unnecessary ones. They will close the case after 48 hours of no complaints. This as of Friday so we'll see.

Thanks all.
