Tor- PROBLEM?

by basta in General Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

The Tor Project advises against using any browser except their customized version of Firefox (Tor Browser), but in any case, I haven't used Opera in a long time so I'm afraid I can't be much help. You might be better off asking in a forum about Opera, assuming one still exists.
For the last ques ...

What do Tor Hide and Safe for me?

by bunda in General Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

First Question:
Yes, the "New Identity" option clears just about everything. It even seems to clear the clipboard.
Second Question:
I'm not completely sure I understand. But I think the answer is no. In general terms, Tor hides who you are, not what you do. In other words if you go a web ...

Tor exit node and Google captcha

by hakelm in General Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

I hate to say it, but running an exit node at home may not be a good idea.
But details about configuring the ExitPolicy option can be found here: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en
You'll need to know which IP addresses to block, but after a cursory investigation it looks lik ...

1. It means your version is outdated.
2. You should be able to.
3. Yes, but it's experimental. https://trac.torproject.org/projects/to ... c/Torouter

Tor bundle, Facebook 100% CPU

by kozmic in General Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

I'd help you out if I could, but I really have no idea. I did quickly try replicating this, but it didn't happen to me. Can you tell which process is using all the CPU time? e.g. Tor or Firefox?

How to log into various websites via Tor

by LogIn in Userspace Software

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

Presumably that means the login process relies on Javascript. Allowing scripts doesn't directly compromise your anonymity, but it does give a hostile website a greater "foothold" in your browser which would make it easier to target you with some type of software exploit. Unfortunately, thi ...

ughhhh its useless??

by FoolishSheep in Userspace Software

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

and how exactly do you do that?"FoolishSheep"
Well, you just start browsing through Tor as normal, then instead of goring directly to the site you want, you visit a proxy service like kproxy.com and put the address of the site you want to visit in there instead. But again, this only works some o ...

Vidalia without TorBrowserBundle on Mac

by franc in Userspace Software

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

I don't have a Mac to experiment with, but presumably you could download the new style browser bundle, extract it and use the Tor application from in there to replace your outdated Tor, while still using the old Vidalia.

Tor together with another browser

by johanlist83 in Security Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

Assuming when you say "Tor" you mean the Tor Browser (not technically the same), then no, that won't cause any problem. Of course Tor will not protect the stuff you do in IE or Chrome. Only what you do in the Tor Browser will be private, but having another browser open won't interfere with ...

MySQL as a hidden service

by paddygra in Running a Server

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

Haven't tried it, but as far as I know that should work. MySQL uses port 3306 (unless you've changed it) so when you create the hidden service, put that down as the virtual port, and use 127.0.0.1:3306 for the target.

Control Tor without Vidalia

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

Ah, sorry. Usually if someone doesn't mention an OS I assume they're on Windows. Unfortunately, it looks like Tor Project only provides Vidalia in ready-to-go form for Windows, Mac and those two Linux flavors. Presumably you could still build it from source,

Problem with tor

by danielmatose in General Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

If you're not going to use Tor Browser, I recommend getting the Relay Bundle instead (you can just turn relaying off, if you don't want to do that). There's no point in messing with the browser bundle if you're don't want to use it they way it was intended.

Setting up Browser

by TripleBypass in Userspace Software

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

Yeah pretty much. Though there is one thing I disagree with the Tor people about as far as default settings. It comes with NoScript installed, but switched off (set to "allow globally"). I always switch it to "forbid globally". This does break some websites, but JS is such a big ...

Setting up Browser

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

It sounds like you're making it too hard. The Tor Browser Bundle designed to be user-friendly. The correct way to approach this is to leave everything in the default setting unless you know you need to change it. And if it works great! If not, only then should you go back and mess with the settings. ...

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

I sympathize. It does seem like more and more sites block it, but it's certainly not true that "EVERYTHING" does. Occasionally I find it helps to use a regular web proxy in addition so they can't see you're using Tor... silly but it does work sometimes.

Can't find Vidalia

by Avodaiah in General Questions

...
  Unnamed Entity   last year

So as a final test go to an IP check site such as http://www.whatismyip.com and make sure you don't see the same address you do when you visit in a normal browser. If that checks out, than clearly Tor is working, but for some reason you can't reach hidden services. One possible reason, odd though it ...

TORRC

by azazel124 in General Questions

  Unnamed Entity   last year

Just plain TORRC would be the one to edit. But I don't think you're right about needing to configure something in there in order to do DNS lookups through Tor. I'm guessing because you haven't given a whole lot of info, but it sound like maybe what you need is a proxy like polipo or Privoxy to sit b ...

How to get Vidalia back - A step-by-step guide

by Unnamed Entity in General Questions

  Unnamed Entity   last year

This is a how-to guide for people who want to use the traditional Vidalia UI with Tor Browser on Microsoft Windows. I have personalty tested these instructions, but they aren't endorsed the Tor Project and may be a really bad idea for some reason I haven't thought of.
Clear? Good.
