Hey, and thanks for your report. Could you try to be more specific on exactly where you get stuck? The instructions are working for many people, so we sure want to figure out how to make them work for you, too.

If you want direct help, feel free to join us in #tor on the IRC network.

No offence but if its this annoying to get it working than nevermind the relay. I configured router (portwarding) and firewall nothing works. I give up. I might try again someday. I don't have the patients sorry guys.

When I test if it works (in settings) I get "No UPnP-enabled devices found". If this is of any help your welcome if not, oh well.

I might check from time to time, but I don't think this will be enough info to fix the problem.

Oh I just saw in my log that I'm missing a certificate or something how or where do I get it?

Due to some unrelated problems I had to format my computer. After re-installing everything it seems like, when I look at network traffic, that the relay is up and running, but according to my log only my directory port is reachable.

If your DirPort is reachable but not your ORPort, perhaps you should disable your DirPort and use that port for your ORPort.

Tor relays don't really need an open DirPort to function, but they do need a working ORPort.

Closing as "not a bug." This tracker isn't really a good place for support questions; the or-talk mailing list and the IRC channel are both better and will get you much better response times.
