Imrahil
hi
is there a documentation on the tor api? so that I can create an own interface?
dr|z3d
Imrahil: Sure, the docs are available. Check the site, and the wiki for more info.
Imrahil: Also consider signing up to or-dev and or-talk, perhaps.
Imrahil
If I understand correctly this: https://git.torproject.org/checkout/tor/master/doc/spec/control-spec.txt is deprecated?
shahn
why would it be deprecated?
that's the exact document you want to look at.
Imrahil
ah, I misunderstood the second block, sry

Hey, I'm trying to use privoxy, tor, and thunderbird.
I've started tor and privoxy. Firefox using torbutton and going to check.torproject.org says tor is running, but when I send an email the header shows my IP
I've set thunderbird to use localhost:8118 for both http and ssl
I've also uncommented the line forward-socks5 / localhost:9050 in /etc/privoxy/config
dr|z3d
Ox4c6f747573: smtp/pop3 != http.
Ox4c6f747573
dr|z3d: that would be why. How can I send emails anon?
In thunderbird I've also tried setting localhost:9050 as my socks proxy
when I do that, I can't reach the server
ahh, I just found a post saying that exit nodes tend to disable port 25
dr|z3d
Ox4c6f747573: Try specifying just the socks proxy and using that instead.
Ox4c6f747573
dr|z3d: Yup, tried that. It can't reach the smtp server, then.
dr|z3d
Also, if you're using Thunderbird, you might want to explore privacy-related addons, header strippers etc.
Ox4c6f747573: By default most exits block port 25. You might try 465 instead.
Ox4c6f747573
gmail smtp uses 587 iirc
dr|z3d: I was thinking I might setup a postfix server on ubuntu with dovecot
dr|z3d
Ox4c6f747573: Not something I've dabbled with, but, sure, give it a go if you think it might help. :)
Ox4c6f747573
_might_ help . I find it strange that gmail tls port 587 is blocked, though.
G-Lo
<dr|z3d> Also, if you're using Thunderbird, you might want to explore privacy-related addons, header strippers etc.<< any names?
dr|z3d
G-Lo: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/browse/type:1/cat:66
G-Lo
I can't see any able to strip headers
dr|z3d
G-Lo: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/reviews/display/875 perhaps?

Hello?!
Hey
I have a few questions, is that okay?
xtoaster
hi
Water
I was checking out the tor FAQ
and saw I could define which entry/exit nodes I used
xtoaster
y
Water
..
...
xtoaster
any more question ? ;)
         

Water
I looked up online a list of tor nodes, and found a few 2 day old ones. It gave me their IP, but I can't define the exit node/entry node via "IP" - only via a "fingerprint" - what's that? Also, is there a better list that will give me a list of exit nodes and let me sort via the date they were added?
xtoaster
sorry you cant define exit by ip
Water
I know
xtoaster
its fingerpringt only
Water
so, what is a "fingerprint" in this context?
I know, as above ^
xtoaster
ok wait. sounds like i am wrong
i dont really remember quite clear
let me check
fp are hashs of the relays 's key
Water
oh, cool
thank you
where is a list of tor nodes and their uptime?
xtoaster
its unique more relaiable then names like "unnamed"
Water
ah yeah
xtoaster
actually they are right in side your tor data dir :)
the cache file contains the info you need. but of course you can look them up in the web portal
Water
Cool - does it give me uptime as well, though? Because I'm looking to get onto a few IRC networks, and they kline/zline *known* Tor nodes, but if I use one that hasn't been up for long..
Where is this web portal?
xtoaster
if you want to use high up time node for certain port.
just use longliveport parameter
tor will take care of that port make sure data forwarded from/to this port is through a high time circuite
Water
I want a low uptime exit node
I want to use only ultra low uptime nodes
xtoaster
why that ?
Water
get onto IRC networks the zline known tor nodes
xtoaster
oh. i see
i am afraind that might not work ;) but why not try it out
i dont remeber the web portal addr but this may help
http://exitlist.torproject.org/
oh no my bad. longlivedports seems to be for hidden serverice
hm not sure .
Water
hmm
xtoaster
if i were you. i would open cached-descriptor with madedit and find the node with lowest up time myself. :)
but right. a web portal may do that faster.
Water
xtoaster: I don't know how to do that
and if I found the node with lowest uptime, how would I find it's "fingerprint"?
xtoaster
its in tor 'data directory and this file is without extension.
open it with a text editor
and look for uptime
its there :-)
Water
where's the tor data directory? sorry, also, I'm on Ubuntu
xtoaster
not sure i am on windows
misc
in /var/lib/tor ?
xtoaster
maybe
you are looking for a ~2mb file
Water
xtoaster: thanks :)
misc: thanks :)
misc: I can't get into the folder
permission denied
I guess I'll have to root terminal CLI into it
xtoaster
uhoh. dont know why.
Water
root@xxxxdesktop:/var/lib/tor# ls
cached-certs cached-descriptors lock
cached-consensus cached-descriptors.new state
which file is that
which of those files*
xtoaster
yeah those files
Water
which one
xtoaster
this big one is a extended version
uptime is there.
Water
k
xtoaster
you see any uptime ?
Water
I think
it's not organised well, though
xtoaster
yep the directory pubilish this way ;)
i guess .new is temp file. it will be merged into the big one before tor exit
so maybe it also worth a look
anyway just search uptime and find a smaller one
Water
k
xtoaster
well. i know its kinda not scientific but i forget the portal address.
Water
oh
xtoaster
the we portal should help you sort them faster
Water
yes
xtoaster
web* and its nicely presented :)
Water
yes
xtoaster
well. since you are on linux, experience the cli power :p for now.
G-Lo
dr|zed: this addon only allows to modify received headers, not sent ones
but thanks anyway
torifythenet
hmm
