Description

Hi, I want to help out. I want to run either a relay or a node on Windows 10. Sorry for a stupid question, but is it possible to run one on Windows 10? I tried copy pasting lines into torcc file and TOR stopped working. I really like what you do btw.

It sounds like you might be using Tor Browser to run a relay. That doesn't work very well.

Try the Tor Export Bundle from here:

We don't have a Windows-specific relay guide yet, but please try:
