As mentioned in my first post, I tried running a Tor node.
Set up as non-exit relay. It just worked directly.
Running on my home fibre, our usual IP address.
Just a few hours later daughter complained she was blocked from some online game. At the moment I thought it was not related as my Tor was not an Exit relay.
Anyhow, as I was in combat mode and set to try out and document using Tor on my favourite distro, after some more hours I also enabled exit function, with ReducedExitPolicy thinking (erroneously probably) that would stop most illicit activity.
According to most blacklist listing sites, now my IP address is not on any.
https://whatismyipaddress.com/blacklist-check tells my IP addr is on dnsbl.spfbl.net, but a internet wizard told me that only means i have not a fixed IP or something like that and that should net lead to any blocking.
IP Address Blacklist Check, IP DNSBL Check | IPVoid indicate IPsum, GitHub - stamparm/ipsum: Daily feed of bad IPs (with blacklist hit scores). Do someone know the reason one get listed there?
https://ipinfo.io/ say I am running Tor. I wonder how that detection works, and how long until it get reset? Does that mean also non-exit Tor? Or even just middle relay? Nine hour ago I stopped running Tor at all.
Which one is the reason several sites block me?
And how to be unblocked soonish?
Three days ago I removed my LAN router port forwarding, and stopped Tor - but forgot it was set start automatically and shortly afterwards I rebooted for new kernel… But still, last days it was running with no port forwarding. Anyhow, now I keep it completely off until I can access some important sites again…
Is it correct that also non-exit Tor relays makes that IP address blocked?
And even middle relay only?
Thanks in advance
