# Replace "TODO1" with a Tor port of your choice. This port must be externally
# reachable. Avoid port 9001 because it's commonly associated with Tor and

# Replace "TODO2" with an obfs4 port of your choice. This port must be
# externally reachable and must be different from the one specified for ORPort.
# Avoid port 9001 because it's commonly associated with

ServerTransportListenAddr obfs4 0.0.0.0:1234
# Local communication port between Tor and obfs4. Always set this to "auto".
# "Ext" means "extended", not "external". Don't try to set a specific port numb er, nor listen on 0.0.0.0.
# Replace "<address at email.com>" with your email address so we can contact you if there are problems with your bridge.
# This is optional but encouraged.
# Pick a nickname that you like for your bridge. This is optional.

I don't have "PublishServerDescriptor" in my conf. Should i?

Sometime i see many circuits and "connectons" but right now everything is blank or at 0 (bandwith use).
i just shared the connexion from my smartphone to connect to tor with my laptop (that the only thing i can do right now). i'm connected to my bridge and can browse.
If i download a file ( 1GB) i can see some connections (10 outbound) in nyx and the bandwith use increases.
I don't know..despite the fact that everthing looks fine to me, i lost the fast and stable flag, sometime tor relay search says the bridge is down and in 11 days nobody connected to my bridge (ecepted me).

I could connect to my bridge from the LAN (even using my external IP) but not from outside. I had to change to a non-standard port, unfortunately, because apparently 80 and 443 are used by the router’s web GUI even if I disabled external access to it. That’s a shame because I understand that ports 80 and 443 are less likely to be blocked by censors.
