Does it check only against actively used ORPort IPv4 address or all ORPort IPs
in the bridge descriptor when connecting to the bridge via IPv6?
- bridge has an IPv6 and IPv4 126.96.36.199
- exit has 188.8.131.52
- tor client connects to the bridge using IPv6
Will the client use that exit if it connects to the bridge via IPv6?
