Description

I keep getting the warning notice

Failed to open GEOIP file .\Data\Tor\geoipv6.

This even though I have put geoip in the \Data\Tor directory, and have written

GeoIPv6File .\Data\Tor\geoipv6

into torrc.

This is not a big problem, my bridge still runs fine. But it seems like a bug. I'm running the bridge on vista x64. - eliaz

My error, I had actually written into torrc,

GeoIPv6File .\Data\Tor\geoip6 [missing "v" before the final "6"],

so of course the proper file couldn't be found. I was sloppy because I got the file from

https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/src/config/geoip6 [no "v"].

Replacing geoip6 with geoipv6 in the torrc line eliminates the warning lines in the log. - eliaz
