Hidden Services not reachable with DirPort 80
My system is a Windows XP SP2 Pro with german localisation. I'm currently using Tor 1.2.7-alpha and Vidalia 0.0.11.
I'm runnning a Tor server for quite a while and was always able to connect to Hidden Services (.onion sites).
Because of a new ADSL line, I could adjust my Bandwith to 100 Kb/s which enabled my preconfigured DirPort on Port 80. (Remember, a Server with less than 50 KB/s is not used as a DirCache!).
After my computer acted as an DirectoryCache I wasn't able to connect to ANY .onion site at ANY time (I've tried it quite often). Deinstalling tor and installing 1.2.6-alpha DID NOT solve the problem. Installinge Vidalia 0.0.10 DID NOT solve the problem. I have also cross-checked Vidalia 0.0.10 with tor 1.2.7-alpha and vice versa. I have always performed a CLEAN installation.
After DISABLING the DirPort and restarting my tor, ALL (known) hidden services where instantly reachable for me.
