Answers that won't go on the FAQ

tor-resolve doesnt seem to work, i get this: 'connection_ap_handshake_process_socks(): Resolve requests to hidden services not allowed. Failing.' from the copy of tor running locally. Please help'''

This question is answered; see 'How Do I Access Tor Hidden Servers.' You get this message when you try to use tor-resolve to resolve the address of a hidden service. But hidden services are hidden -- they don't *have* an IP address you can use. Instead, you need to pass the hostnames to Tor directly.

My system clock is behind 3 days and I don't have permission to change it. Therefore all the certificates are invalid. Is there a runtime option to skew the time?

This question is not a problem as of 0.0.9pre6.
