Dear Relay Operator,

I am the operator of Faravahar, It has been having some network issues,
specifically very long latency. But this is the first time I hear of an issue like this. is Faravahr's older IP addresses which was replaced with and is the new IP (current). 

There are iptable rules forwarding the traffic from OLD IP to the new one
for the clients that have not updated yet. 

Are you running the latest version of tor software?

I'll be sure to keep an eye on this email and open a ticket as needed.

Thank you for reporting the issue and running a relay.

All the best,
