No, I meant there are no errors or warnings in log. Tor relay appears to 
start normally, self test messages are all there.
Now, after several hours, it is listed on torstatus.blutmagie.de with a 
very low bandwidth 2KB/s, and my connection is ~50Mbps.
"View network" shows several connections, but they are just very slow.

One bothering thing is that many messages are repeated 3 times for some 
reason, see below.

So here locally there is no visible indication of any issues, tor as 
client also works fine. The only problem, is no bandwidth through relay.

The most bothersome message in log is this:
Nov 21 11:50:54.000 [notice] We weren't able to find support for all of 
the TLS ciphersuites that we wanted to advertise. This won't hurt 
security, but it might make your Tor (if run as a client) more easy for 
censors to block.
Nov 21 11:50:54.000 [notice] To correct this, use a more recent OpenSSL, 
built without disabling any secure ciphers or features.

Could this be the reason? But the message itself says this isn't a 
critical issue.
