[tor-relays] TOR service wont start with ORPort enabled

Hey there.


I recently updated my working TOR Exit from Raspian Wheezy to Jessie and
also updatet my TOR-Version. 


Now I got the problem, that the TOR-service wont start when I have the
ORPort in the torrc-file enabled.

Port 9001 is forwarded at my router and the Pi is also in the DMZ.



## Required: what port to advertise for incoming Tor connections.

ORPort 9001


pi at raspberrypi:~ $ sudo /etc/init.d/tor start

[....] Starting tor (via systemctl): tor.serviceJob for tor.service failed.
See 'systemctl status tor.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.


pi at raspberrypi:~ $


pi at raspberrypi:~ $ systemctl status tor.service

* tor.service - LSB: Starts The Onion Router daemon processes

   Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/tor)

   Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since So 2016-02-14 13:03:51 CET; 43s

  Process: 18693 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/tor stop (code=exited,

  Process: 10377 ExecReload=/etc/init.d/tor reload (code=exited,

  Process: 18777 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/tor start (code=exited,

pi at raspberrypi:~ $



pi at raspberrypi:~ $ journalctl -xn

No journal files were found.

pi at raspberrypi:~ $




Any ideas what to do?
