Thanks for your help, I have set up a the bridge.

>From the log it looks like it is working:
Jul 24 17:44:27 [notice] Self-testing indicates your ORPort is reachable
from the outside. Excellent. Publishing server descriptor.

but for the moment I'm not seeing much traffic (this is from nyx):
10:35:25 [NOTICE] Heartbeat: In the last 6 hours, I have seen 0 unique
10:35:25 [NOTICE] Heartbeat: Tor's uptime is 16:50 hours, with 4
circuits open. I've sent 2.68 MB and received 25.50 MB.

I suppose this is normal, but I was also wondering how much time (days?)
it would need to have some traffic, I have set this up at home and I
would like to be able to tweak the bandwidth settings so that the bridge
can use as much bandwidth as it is available and without causing issues
for my normal use.
