I am (or was) running a Tor Exit Node with about 200-250bmit/s on a VPS
at Webtropia for several months with the common reduced exit policy
They never had a problem with the fact of running an exit, from time to
time I got an abuse mail to which I responded with the "usual thing"
(that I'm running an exit and the connections are not initiated by me.
If some party wishes not to be contacted I would restrict acces [exit
policy]). On Monday morning my server got shut down. I contacted them by
asking, why the server was shut down, they responded that some spam was
sent (abuse mailing from courbis.fr, axmo12.de claimed a brute force on
SSH and the usual stuff from Webiron) and thus my server was blocked by
them. They now claim that they are entitled to contractual penalty of
Terms do not forbid Tor itself, but spamming and other illegal things
such as port scanning and DoS-attacks
They also told me that they cannot monitor if the traffic is really Tor
traffic and that I should configure my server to prevent such abuse.
How should I proceed there?
