Warning about accounting and HS

If user has relay with enabled accounting and runs HS then tor on startup prints warning about possible security issue with monitoring availability of HS can reveal on which relay it runs.

i have hibernated relay:
Jul 03 21:48:25.000 [notice] Bandwidth soft limit reached; commencing hibernation. No new connections will be accepted

and I still can connect to HS running on it. I think this warning is bogus because you can run HS even on tor client (no ORport).

When your Tor hits hard hibernation (not soft, which just closes listening ports), I think it will opt not to make or allow any circuits. That should break your hidden service.

Tor clients ("no ORport") get disabled by hibernation too -- there's a ticket somewhere around here for having client functionality continue working, but it's a mess so we've never done it.

yes, it checked it. If i hit accounting hard limit then hidden services stops.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
