#8357 closed defect (not a bug)

My node is an exit, but consensus says it's not

So: why don't I have an exit-flag and why do I receive exit-traffic anyway?

The node:

"A router is called an 'Exit' iff it allows exits to at least two of the ports 80, 443, and 6667 and allows exits to at least one /8 address space." See:

(The Exit flag is used for load balancing, but it doesn't dictate whether you will allow exits, or whether clients will be willing to exit from you.)

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
