Food for thought:
Red universally means BAD or STOP or BROKEN. Would it not be possible to make the LED blue or yellow or any other color besides red?
tbh, in retrospect, I had the tor firmware up and running perfectly. First two LED’s were solid green and the 3rd was red. I had just assumed that something was broken, firstly because it was red and second because the “check tor” page was coming up negative.
Now that I reverted to the original firmware, I’m going to get the VPN up and running and then try to implement Tor once again. Stay tuned…
