Here are some questions to get us started (they are not listed in any particular order). We should probably rephrase some of them, as well as add more questions to the survey before the test phase starts up next month.

  • Did you install any additional packages?
  • Did you enable the transparent Tor wireless network?
  • Did you use the Tor web interface?
  • How did you deploy the DreamPlug?
  • Did you have any NAT issues?
  • Did you edit the Tor configuration in any way?
  • Did you encounter any problems? If so, how did you solve them?
  • What do you want to see in an update?
  • Anything else you would like us to know?

Another thing we could ask about is the stuff in the extra-info descriptors (data read/written, number of connected clients etc).

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

I rolled out the beta test in the beginning of February when I sent Excito B3 devices to 20 people. 15 of them have set up Tor as a bridge, 1 has an interesting network setup and is unable to set up a bridge, and 4 have not set up the device at all.

I asked the testers to answer 8 questions. 13 testers replied to all questions, 1 tester replied to some of them. Below is a summarized version of the replies I got:

  • 2 had the onionbox directly connected to the Internet, 12 had placed the onionbox behind a router/firewall
  • 6 had problems when setting up the device, configuring the network and enabling the wireless, 4 of them had to re-flash the device
  • 0 had problems configuring Tor (the tester with the interesting network setup needs to figure out port forwarding or something to make the bridge reachable from the outside)
  • The device is also being used for wifi, as a media server, Tor hidden service, munin, pentesting, file sharing
  • 1 contacted support, 1 found and reported bugs, 2 found bugs but did not report them (I will forward bugs to Excito)
  • Feature requests include QoS config interface, transparent proxy, hidden service, TrueCrypt filestore, stats of bridge usage, better network functionality, smarter behind NAT, obfsproxy
