Try disabling your windows firewall... If you have any like Online Armour, Norton Internet Security, etc. disable those too.
If it works, add the rules to those as well.
I assume you are running some sort of Linux distro, and from what I can tell are trying to set up a hidden service? What service type?
I have set up a hidden server before I might be able to help you :) I also had a tor mirror until recently I moved hosts... I am working on restoring it :)
"Customrc lines" could have been a typo for "Custom rc lines" and short for "Custom torrc lines" (inside of torrc)
Gotta go things to do, lemme know if I should send my email or TeamViewer username or something... I could take a look for you. I am EST (GMT -5h) timezone.
