@wread:
You're great. We will be your followers.

Do you find working with chrome under tor as good as under firefox? Do you see some limitations, making the tor firefox browser better?

@francois
Working with chrome under tor is the same as working without it; you will notice differences when running google, for example, that google thinks (sometimes) that you are actually in other country; some other times, google asks you for validation of your identity, it says "the problem is that William Read is using IP nnn.nnn.mmm.jjj..... and that is unusual"....

With chrome you can switch to tor or not to tor with the switchy button. I wrote a post with instructions how to set up chrome for tor, but I was not logged in and the post got lost. It goes like that:

1.-from chrome store install plugin proxy switchysharp,
2.-when the proxy button appears, press it and go to options,
3.-press new profile, name it tor, and tip manual configurations, set sockhost to 127.0.0.1 and port to 9150,
4.-save and close. Test the configuration running http://check.torproject.org,
5.-to make settings permanent put in rootcopy (or make a module) root/.cache/google-chrome and root/.config/google-chrome.

I suppose you got tor running ok, but has tested only the Tor-browser included in the package (derived from firefox, I guess).

Happy toring, francois! :)

Thanks Donald. That pretty much sums up what I was getting at by the government/malicious exit nodes. I like the email from the Tor founder.

If you don't want to use the Tor browser (derived from Firefox), you don't need the Tor-browser-bundle, but you will need the tor server and the Vidalia controller; download these two and configure your Chrome browser to run with tor too. 8)

What exactly do you mean with tor-browser_you-LAN and tor-browser_your-LAN ?
Is one of these a typo? And to what chown and chgrp the folder?
When you type is as above, it is read as one filename / foldername, and chown and chgrp will exit with an error... :unknown:

I use "tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.3.25-12-dev-de.tar.gz" since I want it x66-64 if possible... :)
When I open that archive, the "base" folder in there is named "tor-browser_de"

So, how should I run the chown and chgrp?
Cheers!

So if I do an ipconfig:

Code: Select all

wlan0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet 192.168.x.x  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 192.168.0.255
broadcast 192.168.x.x is the important information to detect my location?

And with ip address lookup:
http://ipaddress.com/ip_lookup/

I am somewhere in Europe. :Yahoo!:

@Rava
When you unpack the Tor bundle, you will have a ready compiled set of applications; so, if you put those files in rootcopy, they will be loaded at startup, ok?

Now, the unpacked files have those long ugly names and to get them working you must change the owner and group of them all; -R is for recursive, that's all.

For advanced users -you are one, I guess- I would say use tor, vidalia and chrome with the proxysharp plugin. That way you can switch to Tor or to normal with a click.

I am using tor only together with email activity, in general.
The other day I logged in to my bank account and they wouldn't let me log in; they did even lock me the access via internet, asking me to present myself to the next office to change my security card! And I had to do so!!!!
Kein Witz!

192.168.N.N are private IPs intended to be used in intranets. For sure this is the IP set of your router. :)

There's also anonymoX extension for Firefox that can change your IP.
