Tor falsely believing to be offline
Actually, don't know if it's a bug in the server or client, or both. Running Tor server on Win 2k, low bandwidth & severely port limited but still technically an exit; not using the client much, I still will let the server run unattended for days at times. The problem is, after Tor and computer have run unattended for say a dozen hours, when I come back and make a client request myself thru Tor, I will get this notice : "Application request when we're believed to be offline." After which Tor (successfully)fetches directory information again.
I told of this problem on the IRC chat in the past, but apparently it hasn't made its way to the bug repository :(
Questions : - why did Tor believe it was "offline" ? Or is the warning bogus ? Was the /server/ still relaying and exiting in the meantime ? I wonder why I would leave the puter running if Tor really falls asleep :=)
- Workaround, any ? Maybe send some sort of (TCP-)ping thru Tor at regular intervals ?
