#1521 closed defect (duplicate)

Changing OrPort to 0 doesn't terminate relaying instantly

helmut on #tor reports that when a node's configuration is updated, existing connections aren't closed instantly even though relaying should be disabled.

Is this intentional? Is there a way to immediately close the connections (other than shutdown of course)?

I believe that it's intentional that setting ORPort to 0 disables new connections, and lets old ones go on for a while to give them a chance to finish. It's not nice to suddenly kill people's circuits.

I'm not aware of a way to immediately close all the connections besides just killing the process.

hm ok, I'm wondering because some connections might be extremely long-lived or high traffic. Maybe setting clientonly should have this effect?
