#5610 closed defect (user disappeared)

Tor 0.2.2.35 ignores ExcludeExitNodes list, also cannot connect when ExitNodes specified

Description

Installed Vidalia Tor bundle for Win (not the Tor browser bundle), Vidalia 0.2.17 Tor 0.2.2.35. In an effort to ensure the exit node used is in the USA, Added to torrc :

StrictNodes 1
ExcludeExitNodes {AD},{AE},{AF},{AG},{AI},{AL} ( + many other country codes not including US))

However, Tor seems to ignore the list of country codes and will still exit through arbitrary countries in the list. Problem persists though restarts of Tor and the Win7 computer.

Also tried ExitNodes, both with {<country code>} , node name, and node signature. ( for example, ExitNodes {us} )

When trying to specify just US exit nodes, the result was Tor not connecting, log displays:
Apr 12 16:48:53.777 [Warning] failed to choose an exit server
Apr 12 16:48:54.759 [Notice] All routers are down or won't exit or are Excluded -- choosing a doomed exit at random.
Apr 12 16:48:54.759 [Warning] No specified non-excluded exit routers seem to be running: can't choose an exit.
Apr 12 16:48:54.759 [Warning] failed to choose an exit server

Replying to stevecrye:

However, Tor seems to ignore the list of country codes and will still exit through arbitrary countries in the list.

What makes you say this? That is, what are you looking at to conclude this?

Also tried ExitNodes, both with {<country code>} , node name, and node signature. ( for example, ExitNodes {us} )

When trying to specify just US exit nodes, the result was Tor not connecting, log displays:
Apr 12 16:48:53.777 [Warning] failed to choose an exit server

Works for me (not on Windows, not using the Windows Vidalia bundle). Is your bundle missing a geoip file?
