I am attempting to run a relay node on my Kali Linux VM. It appears like everything is working. I started it with systemctl and the service is active.
I looked up my public IP on
But it didn't show up. Is it working?
If not, then how can I further diagnose the problem... if any? I ran the following command
tshark -i eth0 | grep 11666
Traffic started flooding in. However, if I disable Tor and rerun the Wireshark command, I still get tons of traffic flooding in so I don't think Wireshark alone is a good indicator of success.
Here is my torrc file. And yes, I restarted tor via systemctl
