  (i am running a separate Tor network)

  now i have setup the server, was trying to run the client so it can talk
to the server, and fetch the directory from there. while i'm running it,
i got this message, it said "please use none". what does it mean?

   when i run the client, i actually cat the info from the server
"dirservers" file to the client "dirservers" file. if i empty the
client "dirservers" file, it's read failed too...

1/ where do the client get the "dirservers" file?

2/ does anyone know how to fix the following error?


$./tor -f ../config/torrc -r ../config/dirservers
Mar 10 17:19:11.507 [warn] tor_main(): Tor v0.0.2pre19. This is
experimental software. Do not use it if you need anonymity.

Mar 10 17:19:13.862 [err] You are running Tor version 0.0.2pre19, which
will not work with this network.
Please use none.

Mar 10 17:19:13.864 [err] cpuworker_main(): read type failed. Exiting.
