isit true - torsocks - my way?
weasel
Malkovich: do NOT do that.
Malkovich
is there port of torsocks for bsd ?
arma
malkovich: dsocks used to work on bsd. it's been unmaintained for a long time though.
anybody here with a gmail account who can help me out?
keb
in whatway
arma
mail gettor+fa@torproject.org with 'source-bundle' as your mail body
keb
no subject?
arma
any subject
keb
wow i got it alread
y
         

arma
is your response in english?
keb
yes
both responses
the attachment was called source-bundle.z which may confuse some people into thinking it is unix compressed
arma
ok. try a new mail with 'tor-browser-bundle' in your body.
i suspect you'll get the farsi tbb, but the response will still be in english.
keb
Your package should arrive within the next ten minutes.
second reply is in english too

keb
attachment called tor-browser-bundle_fa.z
arma
ok. in theory we switched over to the farsi strings for our answers. and it "didn't work", and people told me to "fix moria", and i have no more details than this.
perhaps they disabled the farsi answers when they left.

BarkerJr
about tor, yes
keb
yes
Pspman

i need an advice about something

Pspman
in Hong Kong there is a website that streams video's about news
keb
arma: the tbb package itself does seem to be in farsi, but it is asking for a password when i run the "Start Tor Browser.exe" file
Pspman
now.. as an foreign person who live outside hong kong
         

arma
keb: probably because your tor is already running.
keb
ah yes, it is vidalia trying to connect to tor
Pspman
i can't view this stream
is it possible to connect to a person who also uses tor in Hong Kong?
so that the website see's his IP instead of mine?
arma
pspman: does it have to be in hong kong?
Pspman
yes
dr|z3d
Pspman: It is. StrictExitNodes and ExitNodes are the directives you want to look at in your torrc.
Or for a single website, you might look at MapAddress.
"man tor" has the specifics.
arma
keb: can you ask gettor2+fa@torproject.org for tor-browser-bundle?
dr|z3d: ten bucks says he's on windows and doesn't know what man is. :}
Pspman
how can i open the filr "torc"
keb
i didnt know the psp ran windows
Pspman
it has no extension
dr|z3d
arma: I suspect you may be 10$ richer :)
Pspman
"torrc"
dr|z3d
With any text editor.
keb
Open With "Notepad.exe"
arma
pspman: you're asking to do something that is very hard to do on windows right now. the simplest answer may well be "sorry, we haven't made that easy for windows users yet"
dr|z3d
Notepad++ recommended, if you're on Windows.
Pspman
ow.. oke :(
on what kind of platform are you guys running then?
keb
arma : 2 messages sent, 0 replies so far
dr|z3d
(Action) chuckles at arma's pessimism vis-a-vis Windows users.
Pspman: Linux and BSD seem the most popular platforms, here at least.
arma
dr|z3d: step one, learn how to edit torrc. step two, find a hk exit, or upgrade to a tor version that can do exitnodes {hk}. step three, learn why you can't watch your flash when you're using torbutton.
lots of steps.
dr|z3d
(Action) concurrs.
"not for the feint of heart (or the newb)"
keb
some newbs like to learn new things
arma
step four, realize that tor can't stream the thing fast enough anyway
oh hey. trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com is labelled all the nl relays as being in namibia.
namibia is super-fast for tor today.
Pspman
what do you mean by find a HK extit?
keb
nice
Pspman
a person who has tor?
I did, username Skreech
he's located in HK
arma
Skreech is not an exit relay.
keb
there is a list of tor exit nodes with countries
arma
https://www.torproject.org/faq#ExitPolicies
keb
http://trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com/
dr|z3d
You can see that list in Vidalia.
Or there ^
arma
keb: anything different from gettor2+fa?
?gettor2
keb
no replies yet
arma
erm
keb
should i send another
arma
ok.
nah
Pspman
so at the link "
keb
that lists all tor nodes, you have to find which ones are exits and which are in hk
Pspman
oke
i found 1 person
can some one look also
http://trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com/router_detail.php?FP=5e50e1b58698aea75191b343970572b5408197c7
he's in HK
how can i find in the text if he's an exit
keb
check the Router Flags on the right
when you look at the main listing, Exit routers have a door icon
Jotunbane
he's not
exit policy : reject *.*
keb
yeah you can tell from that as well
Jotunbane
compare with : http://trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com/router_detail.php?FP=8af4e37448bb4055066b2db927419bdb2186f1e3
thats me ;)
Pspman
I don't see an door icon @ Jotunbane
on the link that just been given to compare
Jotunbane
the door's are here : http://trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com/?clear=clear
Pspman
oow hehe now i see
I found one "with an V" at exit at router flag http://trunk.torstatus.kgprog.com/router_detail.php?FP=0c27e8e2f2860675c70c2432284809501e7c7640
Jotunbane
he's ecit
exit even
Pspman
exit even?
Jotunbane
he is exit
Pspman
meaning..
Jotunbane
he is exit
hahaha
Pspman
ow haha
sorry
how can i use his "relay" or "connection" for this stream
meaning steps to setup
keb
he advertises 5MB/s but only delivers 3.6KB/s
Jotunbane
why do you want to use him? (whats wrong with rest of us ;)
dr|z3d
Pspman: See above, the info I provided is _still_ valid. :)
https://torproject.org/tor-man-dev.html I think for the manual to aid you in your torrc editing.
Jotunbane
actually https://www.torproject.org/tor-manual.html
Pspman
hahaha
yeah i reloaded several times with no url found
I did saw that the rest are still "valid"
but i might think that "if" i connect
not one of these persons are capable to watch this url http://mytv.tvb.com/drama/bornrich/102909#page-1
i know it's chinese
Jotunbane
ahhhh, hahahahah
Pspman
but in the middle says that video can be streamed in Hong Kong
that's why i was looking for an chinese Hong Kong Exit
or am I am understanding something worng
wrong
Jotunbane
streaming through Tor is bad form
shame on you ;)
Pspman
really?
Jotunbane
really!
Pspman
serious?
Jotunbane
super erial
+s
Pspman
well i'm new so i don;t know all the faqs
because of...? ...bandwith?
Jotunbane
people dont volunteer their bandwith so you can watch streaming anime from hong kong
but then again, nobody can prevent you from trying
Pspman
it's not anime but for example a drama serie, but sometimes i'm interested in news in Hong Kong
Jotunbane
lol
Pspman
so thats why i was looking for a solution
Jotunbane
Move to Hong Kong springs to mind
Pspman
?
springs?
sorry if my english is bad
:P
Jotunbane
try here : http://www.xroxy.com/proxy-country-HK.htm
Pspman
ermm.. ok
how do i set this up?
through or with firefox
Jotunbane
put in one of those as a manual proxy in firefox, then try
and let me know how it turns out :)
keb
or just type the url into the "Start using proxy" entry on that page
and press go
Pspman
when i paste the URL from before it ended up with LOGIN first:P
I'll try to enter manually into firefox
brb
Jotunbane
yeah they want you to register
dr|z3d
If you want to stream anonymously, Pspman, have a look at http://i2p2.de
Jotunbane
he just wants to "be in honk kong" to stream something
keb
where stream = download
dr|z3d
Ah, gotcha. Nevermind, then.
keb
a lot of streaming uses UDP which doesnt travel over Tor anyway
dr|z3d
Indeed, which was kinda why I mentioned I2P. ;)
Pspman
ic.
well i pushed 1 of the proxy into firefox
the stream took awhile to load
but in the end it says that this video can only be streamed in Hong Kong
same ol' thing
dr|z3d
You're pretty much wasting your time with Tor.
Jotunbane
then you have to move to hong kong
dr|z3d
For video streaming. It will be painfully slow.
Pspman
well to be honoust i didn't waste my time, cuz i was also looking for an other solution. Last month i was in China for Holiday. It seems that Facebook has been blocked over there. So i was still looking for ans answer if I could connect to someone outside China to log on Facebook
dr|z3d
That works fine over Tor.
You'll just have to lower your expectations for anything realtime or time critical , like streaming.
Pspman
ok
dr|z3d
Tor works best with small packets of data, ideally suited to web browsing and instant chat.
Pspman
thnx for the advices guys!!
I try to read the info about what you guys mentioned earlier how to edit "torrc" file
it might be usefull if i'm going to china for holiday again
there are really lots of things blocked
arma
pspman: next time you're in china, you'll want to get a few bridge addresses before you go
keb
yeah because they try to block tor
arma
pspman: https://www.torproject.org/bridges
dr|z3d
Did China ever ease up on the blocking after their celebrations?
arma
nope
