It would be nice to implement the possibility to choose/use only specific TOR servers not only for entry and exit but also for the "middleman".

Right now the only possibility is to exclude certain servers via command line option, but that doesn't really fit the needs.

so it would be cool to have a command line option e.g. --middlemanservers <nick1,nick2,> and also the option --strictmiddlemanservers

why i want that feature?

  • possibilty to improve speed
  • choose a specific route
  • possibility to use only really reliable servers, e.g. for time critical tasks

thanks for your work

Thanks! We want to make Tor faster, but this isn't the way to do it---if users have to manually move their streams to fast servers, usability will suffer a lot. Rather than implement this feature, we're trying to remove the need for it by getting more servers; load-balancing better; and looking for ways to route bandwidth/latency-critical stuff preferentially.
