tor.exe hangs on “[notice] Opening OR listener on 0.0.0.0:9001”
Last night I encountered this issue and haven't been able to find a solution from the wiki, stackexchange, or IRC.
I'm trying to run a non-exit relay on Windows Server 2012. tor.exe bootstrapped to 100% last night, but I hadn't configured logging (which I needed to confirm the 20 minute port checker thing), so I closed it and relaunched. Now it doesn't get past the opening OR listener line.
I've added 9001 to my firewall exceptions and endpoints for my Azure VM, and confirmed this port is accessible using http://ismyportopen.com/.
I've restarted, deleted the Data folder and the contents of Roaming and tried to start from scratch, but it appears like some information is retained. I didn't see it regenerate keys and such. Is there a way to reset tor entirely to confirm whether I somehow corrupted its state?
