Tor apparently not publishing itself in directory

So in I'm running a server on OS X 10.3.9 and curiously, this server never seems to show up in the current directory although it apparently is being found and used.

The only time this box showed up was for the hour or so that it was booted into Ubuntu Linux and I'd installed a much older version of Tor to see how it would run. THAT one published. But the one that's been running the other 23 or so hours on either side of it on OS X....not a peep.

So I'm wondering if there is some way to inadvertently disable that via mucking about in torrc that I should fix. Any ideas? Does it matter? Seems to me that it would matter.

(The server nickname that did publish was "maidenhair" as you can still find in the directory. But when it was going by that nick on OS X nothing and now that I've changed the nick to "denali" (partly to see if there was a directory problem)...nothing. No denali in the directory. :-(

Look in your logs. Does it give any hints?

My guess is that your server is trying to verify its reachability, and it is concluding your ports
are not reachable (e.g. you've got a firewall up). Your logs will provide details of what IP:port
your server thinks it is.

denali is now up and running on the outside of its firewall, so I'm going to call this one closed.
