#4812 closed defect (duplicate)

MapAddress should perhaps work without AllowDotExit

Sebastian irc story is that MapAddress should work without setting AllowDotExit to 1.

Manual page story is that AllowDotExit is extremely dangerous.

This torrc configuration..

MapAddress * *

..spews out the following story in tor's log:

[warn] The ".exit" notation is disabled in Tor due to security risks. Set AllowDotExit in your torrc to enable it.
[warn] Invalid onion hostname [scrubbed]; rejecting

MapAddress does not work without AllowDotExit as of todays git. I have not tried other versions.

If Sebastian story about MapAddress should work without AllowDotExit is true then Tor has a bug which could pretty please be fixed.

Thanks for the bug report! I agree it should be fixed. I'm closing this ticket, however, since it's a duplicate of #3940.
