I operate 2 nodes of the Tor both in Germany.
Fistly, I set up one of them, the OrionTorNode as an exit, but I had
some problems with my vds provider and turn it in the middlemen regim.
After that I rented a new vds from a vds provider listing in the Tor
blog as frendly to the Tor and set up on it an exit node OrionTorNode1
that works fine to that days.
My provider received an abuse in late of December concerning using my
tor-exit for torrenting but after I informed them that I reconfigured my
/etc/tor/torrc they was fully satisfied and did not requre me stop my
exit-node such their colleaques - staff of the vds provider of my first
But it will be very good to set up an exit node without any restrictions
of exit policy.
If anyone could recommend me an offshore vds provider
which is rigid to any abuses and which prices are not very expensive
I would be thankful.
