I've been helping some other SponsorR folks get up to speed on reading controller events when accessing a pile of hidden services. In theory the controller events should help you understand how far we got at reaching a hidden service when the connection fails. In practice it's a bit overwhelming.

I sat down in person to walk through the controlport output, but I should write it up as e.g. a wiki file so my explanation is usable by more people later too.

I wrote up a draft walk-through of a successful connection at

I wonder if there are easy trac markups to make the controller output blockquotes easier to read without scrolling all over with your mouse?

Also, I wonder if I should write up a walk-through of various ways that it can fail?

I'm going to call this good-enough-for-now. We can expand the wiki as needed in the future.
