Your relay's IPv6 Exit policy is:
Which is the port summary for:
You need to set IPv6Exit 1 to exit via IPv6.
(The default is 0.)
If you want your relay to accept client connections via IPv6,
you also need to set:
ORPort [Your IPv6 Address]:Port
You need to add the IPv6 ORPort to your existing IPv4 ORPort,
which looks like:

nyx is a relay monitor.
It will tell you if your relay uses IPv6.
But it doesn't configure your relay for you.

Possibly. But it's more likely a problem with your upnp or router connection limits.
Our experience is that upnp is unreliable. You're better to configure a port mapping
manually on your router.
Tor relays need about 7000 connections to work, more for exits. Many home routers
work badly when they have over 1000 connections.

nyx works with all supported versions of Tor (0.2.9 and later).
arm is no longer supported.
