Migrated from old trac:
"I'm using tor behind a firewall. When i'm using the option "mirror the relay directory" i get a message in the logfile that tor can't determine my external adress. To use this i have to manualy add my external adress to the torrc file. Can you make this option available in the vidalia control panel. Somewhere near the directory portnumber an input field to provide the external ip-adress.

A nicer why whould be to have vidalia detect the external ip-adress."

In theory, Vidalia isn't supposed to care about Tor's IP address. Tor is supposed to guess it correctly.

And now that there's the 'custom torrc lines' section in Advanced, if Tor gets it wrong you can notice in the log window and fix it.

Without a more precise bug report (why it wasn't learning the IP address), I'm not sure there's anything to fix here.
