    v146 v147  
    5656=== Relay Requirements ===
    5757Requirements for Tor relays depend on the type of relay and the bandwidth they provide.

    5959==== Bandwidth
    6060* A relay should be able to handle at least 6000 concurrent connections (exit and guard relays even more). This can overwhelm some consumer-level routers. If you run the Tor relay from a server (virtual or dedicated) in a data center you will be fine. If you run it behind a consumer-level router at home you will have to try and see if your home router can handle it or if it starts failing.
     
    6565
    6666* It is recommended that a Tor relay be allowed to use a minimum of 100 GByte of outbound traffic (and the same amount of incoming traffic) per month. Note: That is only about 1 day worth of traffic on a 10MBit/s (Mbps) connection. More (>2 TB/month) is better and recommended.
     67
     68==== IPv4 Address
     69Every relay needs an IPv4 address. It needs to be a public IPv4 address - either directly on the host (preferred) or via NAT to a private RFC1918 IPv4 address.
     70Additional IPv6 connectivity is great and recommended/encouraged but not a requirement.
    6771
    6872==== Memory Requirements
