Fantastic.. sounds like it's working. You may wish to post the log
stating this to verify.

DirPort is not required to be a relay in the network. I'm unsure about
Exit but my guess is that Exits do not require you to be a
"V2Dir" (directory mirror) as it doesn't make much sense to force that.

If you are able to host a DirPort in addition to a relay/exit, go
ahead! You are still tremendously useful and contributing even without
a DirPort.
