How do I setup a Tor server on my Android tablet?

I can install the Orbot client, but how do I contribute to the tor network?

I have my tablet on a WiFi the most of the day so it would be nice to contribute to the bandwidh of the Tor network.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Did this solution work for you? It didn't for me as I am getting a "port unreachable error" . I want to put my grandfathered unlimited data plan to good use! – Gabriel Fair Nov 19 '15 at 3:13

Select the Settings button (Orbot Settings button) on the top-right corner. In the Settings screen, scroll down to the "Relays" section and tick the box next to "Relaying - Enable your device to be a non-exit relay". The relay will listen to port 9001 by default, but you can adjust that by changing the relay port.
