If you run a Tor relay that allows exit connections (such as the default exit policy), it's probably safe to say that you will eventually hear from somebody. Le denunce di abuso possono presentarsi in una varietà di forme. Per esempio:

  • Somebody connects to Hotmail, and sends a ransom note to a company. The FBI sends you a polite email, you explain that you run a Tor relay, and they say "oh well" and leave you alone. [Port 80]
  • Somebody tries to get you shut down by using Tor to connect to Google groups and post spam to Usenet, and then sends an angry mail to your ISP about how you're destroying the world. [Port 80]
  • Somebody connects to an IRC network and makes a nuisance of himself. Your ISP gets polite mail about how your computer has been compromised; and/or your computer gets DDoSed. [Port 6667]
  • Somebody uses Tor to download a Vin Diesel movie, and your ISP gets a DMCA takedown notice. See EFF's Tor DMCA Response Template, which explains why your ISP can probably ignore the notice without any liability. [Arbitrary ports]

Some hosting providers are friendlier than others when it comes to Tor exits. For a listing see the good and bad ISPs wiki.

Potresti anche scoprire che l'IP del tuo Tor relay è bloccato dall'accedere ad alcuni siti/servizi Internet. Questo potrebbe accadere indipendentemente dalla tua politica di uscita, perché alcuni gruppi sembrano non sapere o non si preoccupano che Tor abbia politiche di uscita. (Se hai un IP di riserva non utilizzato per altre attività, potresti considerare di eseguire il tuo Tor relay su di esso.) In generale, è consigliabile non utilizzare la propria connessione Internet domestica per fornire un Tor relay.
