Bridge Routers Broken on MAC OSX 10.6.6
Summary: When the TOR Vidalia bundle is installed on fully updated MAC OSX 10.6.6 system, TOR does not recognize bridge routers that are manually entered in the "Settings" dialog box.
Builds tested: 0.2.1.29-0.2.10-i386-1.dmg, 0.2.2.22-alpha-0.2.10-i386.dmg
How we tested it:
Set up apache on my system. Friend in [country] can connect to apache and view a web page on port 80, and via https on port 443. This confirms my IP address is not blocked from the friend's network.
Shut down apache. Set up a TOR bridge server at same IP address. Logs show dozens of users connecting to it from all over the world. This means the system is working on my end.
Sent bridge server IP/port/hash to friend. When friend entered this information in TOR (see attached screen cap), their system was unable to connect to my bridge server.
Turned off firewall on friend's computer. Turned off IPV6. Rebooted. Problem persisted.
Shut down TOR on my end. Restarted Apache. Friend was able to connect to my web server on ports 80 and 443.
Shut down Apache. Restarted bridge router. Logs show multiple users able to connect to my bridge router.
We repeated this for both MAC TOR builds (stable and alpha), rebooting the system each time.
