Default Value Incorrect in Tor Manual

"AutomapHostsOnResolve 0|1

When this option is enabled, and we get a request to resolve an address that ends with one of the suffixes in AutomapHostsSuffixes, we map an unused virtual address to that address, and return the new virtual address. This is handy for making ".onion" addresses work with applications that resolve an address and then connect to it. (Default: 0)"

The Default is actually 1. I know that because the value in my torrc file is 1 and I can access sigaintevyh2rzvw.onion. I'm running Tails 2.6 with the included Tor Browser (6.0.5), and the relevant torrc is at etc/tor/torrc .

I have left the options below at their defaults because I'd just be guessing.

It should be very simple to confirm and fix.

Hm? No, it defaults to 0.

From config.c:

  V(AutomapHostsOnResolve,       BOOL,     "0"),

Maybe you have a line in your torrc file that changes it to 1? That would not be what I would call a default. :)

Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

Default is indeed 0.
