1. Enable Automatic Software Updates
One of the most important things to keep your relay secure is to install security updates timely and ideally automatically so you can not forget about it.
Follow the instructions to enable automatic software updates for your operating system.
To install the
tor package on Arch Linux, please run:
# pacman -Syu tor
Put the configuration file
/etc/tor/torrc in place
Nickname myNiceRelay # Change "myNiceRelay" to something you like
ContactInfo your@e-mail # Write your e-mail and be aware it will be published
ORPort 443 # You might use a different port, should you want to
Log notice syslog
4. Enable and Start
# systemctl enable --now tor
... or restart it if it was running already, so configurations take effect
# systemctl restart tor
