Set up a bridge or a relay and join the Tor network today

by Runa | March 12, 2012

The Tor network relies on volunteers to donate bandwidth. The more people who run Tor as a bridge or a relay, the faster and safer the network becomes. Tactical Tech created a video to encourage you to join the Tor Network. The video, and information about how you can set up a bridge or a relay, can be found on If you want to help us translate the video into your language, let us know!

It would help if you fixed the problem with the geoip file beeing in the wrong directory in the vidalia bundle for windows. I had to manually copy that file to the right folder for the bridge to function properly. Before I realised what was causing the problem I had previously for 3 weeks been running a non-working bridge wondering why I had no traffic through the bridge. After I copied the geoip file to the right folder and restarted vidalia/tor, within a few hours the bridge was busy again with traffic mostly from countries with oppressing regimes. I use windows 7 64-bit.

Finally. Tor releases a video that is actually artistic and is not stupidly technical. The 1% of the world which likes stupidly long technical videos is not the only world out there. We are the 99% who do not care about your technology and all its bits. We care it works, works well, and trust you are doing the right things. Thank you for releasing this video. Please do more like it.

I setup four Tor relays in the Amazon EC2 cloud, but then had to shut them down all after five days do to the cost. All of my relays had about 2 MB/s of bandwidth.
