No, we did not pay attention to their AUP. We have long been using their
services for proxy and there were no problems. Thank you for reminding.

We think that IPv6 is rarely used and therefore did not put it up.
The Tor project has invested a lot of time and effort into improving IPv6 over
the last few years. The aim is to also enable IPv6 only relays. We want to
achieve more diversity, Tor-exit relays under different ASNs and multiple
ISPs. With IPv4 this is difficult. IP's are empty and to get a /24 you have to
pay around 5000,- EUR in the first year with RIPE. One /24 is the least you
can announce as an ASN. You can't split that between different data centers.
IPv6 is easier and cheaper to get. In addition, there are more and more ISPs
that only offer IPv6.
IPv6 only relays are only possible when almost all Tor relays support it.
Currently about 75% Tor exits¹ and 50% entry/middle relays.
Therefore, anyone who can should configure IPv6 or dual stack.
yui.cat shows that our nodes offline because not configured IPv6, right?
No, yui.cat has nothing to do with it. This is a private status page using
data from onionoo and Tor-metrics.
First look at what's in the syslog. If you need help then post the errors and
When the Tor daemon is running without errors than as already mentioned, I
think Francisco took you offline because your relays were blacklisted for open
SMTP ports. Check if you have tickets in stallion. Or ask in the Frantech
community chat on Discord, Matrix and IRC.
¹Heck, we've lost some IPv6 % since relayon is down.
