Recommended Posts

sometimes i'm visiting a site that i don't exactly want to have my IP address. any suggestions for reasonably fast anonymous proxy?

all i'm looking for is good ol port 80 so relatively low bandwidth required. just viewing some non video based sites.

Wow i had never heard of TOR before.

Thank you i will try it out.

for future reference I take it what i was looking for was http://www.torproject.org/

Yep, tor takes all your traffic and send it through their network, and out a node. Most of these nodes are user run, so someone could sniff all the packets going through their part of the network, and get everything your sending/receiving. I assume the chances of that happening is pretty low, but good info to know.

Well i installed Tor but have run into problems. every time i enable it i get a blank browser screen. anyone know a Wiki or forums that can help me trouble shoot this? it seems that there is no real support info on the TOR site.

Do you know if TOR is up and connected correctly? Or is the problem after your connected to the TOR network?

EDIT:: Also, what does it show when you go to :: https://check.torproject.org/?

Nothing it won't pull any websites up at all just gives me a gray blank browser window.

I followed the instructions at http://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-unix.html.en

I am thinking i may have screwed up when installing Polipo.

I remember having trouble with the

su 'make install'

command. that might be where the whole thing fell apart, but it did install polipo.

ETA Now i'm working on it agian, i am getting an error stating that my proxy server is refusing connections

did you replace the config file with the other one from tor?

they have different names so i just opened the original one with gedit under root and copy and pasted the new one into that (replacing the old one) and saved it. if you replaced it with the new config file and used the new file name that might be why it wont work.

Yep i replaced the contents of the config file with the TOR one. i've been going through and seeing if i needed to adjust any settings. so far i've tried uncommenting

heres the config file for Polipo

# Sample configuration file for Polipo. -*-sh-*-

# You should not need to edit this configuration file; all configuration
# variables have reasonable defaults.

# This file only contains some of the configuration variables; see the
# list given by ``polipo -v'' and the manual for more.


### Basic configuration
### *******************

# Uncomment one of these if you want to allow remote clients to
# connect:

# proxyAddress = "::0"        # both IPv4 and IPv6
# proxyAddress = "0.0.0.0"    # IPv4 only

# If you are enabling 'proxyAddress' above, then you want to enable the
# 'allowedClients' variable to the address of your network, e.g.
# allowedClients = 127.0.0.1, 192.168.42.0/24

# allowedClients = 127.0.0.1              

# Uncomment this if you want your Polipo to identify itself by
# something else than the host name:

# proxyName = "polipo.example.org"

# Uncomment this if there's only one user using this instance of Polipo:

 cacheIsShared = false

# Uncomment this if you want to use a parent proxy:

# parentProxy = "squid.example.org:3128"

# Uncomment this if you want to use a parent SOCKS proxy:

 socksParentProxy = "localhost:9050"
 socksProxyType = socks5


### Memory
### ******

# Uncomment this if you want Polipo to use a ridiculously small amount
# of memory (a hundred C-64 worth or so):

# chunkHighMark = 819200
# objectHighMark = 128

# Uncomment this if you've got plenty of memory:

# chunkHighMark = 50331648
# objectHighMark = 16384


### On-disk data
### ************

# Uncomment this if you want to disable the on-disk cache:

# diskCacheRoot = ""

# Uncomment this if you want to put the on-disk cache in a
# non-standard location:

# diskCacheRoot = "~/.polipo-cache/"

# Uncomment this if you want to disable the local web server:

# localDocumentRoot = ""

# Uncomment this if you want to enable the pages under /polipo/index?
# and /polipo/servers?.  This is a serious privacy leak if your proxy
# is shared.

# disableIndexing = false
# disableServersList = false


### Domain Name System
### ******************

# Uncomment this if you want to contact IPv4 hosts only (and make DNS
# queries somewhat faster):

# dnsQueryIPv6 = no

# Uncomment this if you want Polipo to prefer IPv4 to IPv6 for
# double-stack hosts:

# dnsQueryIPv6 = reluctantly

# Uncomment this to disable Polipo's DNS resolver and use the system's
# default resolver instead.  If you do that, Polipo will freeze during
# every DNS query:

# dnsUseGethostbyname = yes


### HTTP
### ****

# Uncomment this if you want to enable detection of proxy loops.
# This will cause your hostname (or whatever you put into proxyName
# above) to be included in every request:

# disableVia=false

# Uncomment this if you want to slightly reduce the amount of
# information that you leak about yourself:

# censoredHeaders = from, accept-language
# censorReferer = maybe

# Uncomment this if you're paranoid.  This will break a lot of sites,
# though:

# censoredHeaders = set-cookie, cookie, cookie2, from, accept-language
# censorReferer = true

# Uncomment this if you want to use Poor Man's Multiplexing; increase
# the sizes if you're on a fast line.  They should each amount to a few
# seconds' worth of transfer; if pmmSize is small, you'll want
# pmmFirstSize to be larger.

# Note that PMM is somewhat unreliable.

# pmmFirstSize = 16384
# pmmSize = 8192

# Uncomment this if your user-agent does something reasonable with
# Warning headers (most don't):

# relaxTransparency = maybe

# Uncomment this if you never want to revalidate instances for which
# data is available (this is not a good idea):

# relaxTransparency = yes

# Uncomment this if you have no network:

# proxyOffline = yes

# Uncomment this if you want to avoid revalidating instances with a
# Vary header (this is not a good idea):

# mindlesslyCacheVary = true

I'm in chat if you want to go through this and not post whore the forums

I currently work for the government and they have blocked hak5.org

I am currently using http://peacefire.org/ to bypass their filters.
