hi
I have a Tor tarball for you, can you try building it (with the "bad" openssl version) so we can see if that fixes things?
nickm: worked on a patch
BarkerJr
k
Sebastian
https://sebastianhahn.net/tor/tor-0.2.2.10-alpha-dev.tar.gz
just ./configure and make like normal

Sebastian
woo!
keep it running, it should join the consensus :)
         

BarkerJr
cool :)

hi
Tryst
have anyone experienced jabber being block by the default exit policy?
dr|z3d
jabber protocol not supported by tor afaik.
Iirc, it's a dns lookup issue or similar.
murb
i don't see any good reason why xmpp shouldn't workover tor
(could be some problems with svr records and service discovery, but this can be manually overridden in most clients.)
Sebastian
jabber runs fine over tor for me
Tryst
have you check if your exit node uses the default policy?
Sebastian
my own exit node doesn't. But that's unrelated to whether jabber works or not
Tryst
i just noticed it coz there's instances im having problem getting a good exit node while using jabber and incidentally they have default policy
dr|z3d
I've never had jabber work for me with Tor.. always see dns resolve issues.
I gave up long ago.
Tryst
with your exit node normally what's the monthly bandwidth ave?
Sebastian
2 Terabytes
BarkerJr
murb: just so you know, "workover" and "work over" mean very different things :)
dr|z3d
BarkerJr: I suspect he knows, but well observed nonetheless :)
murb
i suspectmyspacebarwashavingproblems
Tryst
im checking my server and i notice a cron job and i find it very odd
[ -x /usr/lib/mailman/cron/mailpasswds ] && /usr/lib/mailman/cron/mailpasswds
i dont want to make conclusions as im not an expert but what can youo tell about that?
misc
1) that it is not related to tor :)
2) that's likely normal, used to send monthly reminder
Tryst
im a bit worried as i know a few nodes in that server
dr|z3d
Tryst: Tried googling that string?
And, what misc said. Perhaps we can continue this discussion over in #nottor :)
beggaboo
hello :) ...could someone tell me how to configure my relay to run while I'm using tor, like when on irc... :P
or point me to some instructions...
         

dr|z3d
beggaboo: What do you want to do, sorry?
beggaboo
dr|z3s: if I'm torifying xchat I can't start my relay cause "Could not bind to 127.0.0.1:9050: Address already in use. Is Tor already running?" :)
dr|z3d
Why isn't your relay running first?
beggaboo
well I run the relay on my laptop...so I can't have it running all the time
dr|z3d
I'm not so familiar with tsocks or socat.. it should be able to bind to an already running Tor instance, though.
Have you tried starting your relay before you attempt an xchat session?
beggaboo
and I got some error actually all of a sudden the other day when I tried to run it, sth about my private key
wait I'm gonna try it now again
[Warning] crypto error while Error parsing private key: no start line (in PEM routines:PEM_read_bio)
I get that error
dr|z3d
That's curious, but I'm personally able to decipher what it means :) Someone may be able to, though.
(Action) checks for signs of arma.
beggaboo
you mean you are not able to decipher that? ;)
dr|z3d
I mean I can't tell you anything useful. :)
beggaboo
yeah I know, u just said " I'm personally able to decipher..." :)
but thanx anyway ;)
dr|z3d
Oh! Yeah.
:) *not
beggaboo
hehe
dr|z3d

njaln: ping. did you see the questions i added to your gsoc proposal?
Francis
is there a way to turn picture loading off on tor?
I think you should increase the minimum allowable bandwidth that one can donate
that would increase speed right?
because the average bandwidth per person has increased over the years
could anyone please answer my question
hi dr|z3d
Neeraj, hi
Neeraj
hi Francis
Francis
Neeraj, do you know much about Tor?
Neeraj
yep
but not too much
i mean not everything
Francis: what is it you want to know
may be i can be of some help to you
Francis
Neeraj, do you know how to turn picture loading off?
Neeraj
where?
in tor?
ln5
Francis: are you using a browser to read web pages and want to avoid loading images?
Francis
In Tor, yes.
ln5
Francis: you should then look into how your browser can be configured not to load them
Francis
ln5, I just want to not load images for some sites.
zhxk
(Action) waves to dr|z3d
Neeraj
if you use IE go to this link http://www.espinner.net/espinner10.html?how_to_set_your_ie_browser_to_.htm
ln5
Francis: that's something you should ask you browser or perhaps your proxy (polipo or privoxy, presumably) to help you with
Francis
Neeraj, I use FireFox
Neeraj
ok
Francis
ln5, if possible I would like to turn pictures on/off on demand.
Neeraj
option ->content
untick the load images automatically
Francis
Neeraj, thanks
Neeraj
tools ->option -> content
Francis
that's much better
Neeraj
ok
no problem
do you want to reduce bandwidht usage?
by not loading pics
Francis
Neeraj, I want the pages to load faster
Neeraj
great
i used to think that some time back
but then i realised that it is better with pics
;)
Francis
Neeraj, you don't use Linux, do you?
Neeraj
i use linux
but currently its corrupted and i am too b usy with placements and don't have time to reinstall it
but i will install it as soon as i get a chance to do it
just installin linux does not work
you have to install a lot other things as well
:(
Francis
Neeraj, not with some distros.
Neeraj
distros?
Francis
Neeraj, distributions
Neeraj
ok
yep
but i will have to reinstall windows too and the grub is corrupted i think
and then all other softwares
i am a bit of gaming freak as well
so cant do without windows
lan gaming is good
lets not spam here
pm me
njaln
karsten: yes, writing the answer now
zhxk
can tor hide your ip?
karsten
njaln: great!
Neeraj
ep
yep zhxk
zhxk
can tor hide your ip and route path to the peer?
Neeraj:yep to the peer side?
Neeraj
yep zhxk but not if the attacker is too strong
he can find it by observing the traffic
but for normal attackers it can
zhxk
i mean wen you read pager on a web, the web server cant trace you?
Neeraj
no
he will not get your ip
zhxk
it cant record anyinformation from you?
it cant record anyinformation about you?
Neeraj
no
and if it is customised for ipwise sending information ....... you will see that it may ads etc that you are not intended to get
may be in languages other than yours
harahauk
zhxk: provided you use the tool correctly, check your ip by visiting a page that tells you your IP =)
Neeraj
some site open in the native language of the IP
so you might not be able to read them
that's a drawback too
:P
zhxk
so, it is safe keep nothing of your private information on the computer, and go to anywhere do anything on the web with a tor is safe also?
Neeraj
use whatismyipadress.com to see what ip it gives
and then match it with yours
yep zhxk but don't use it for illegal purposes
zhxk
its relative
well, how can i mix use with torbutton and foxyproxy
Neeraj
there is no use of torbutton if you use foxyproxy
zhxk
i see torbutton become effectless
Neeraj
u can just add one more option in foxyproxy with the tor setting
and use it at will
k
leaving for lunch
zhxk
wait
i go with you;p
i want make torbutton work again
Neeraj
zhxk: read http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/faq.html
go to tor section directly
use ctrl+F to find it
or just scroll down
zhxk
Neeraj:theres no section about torbutton
Runa
zhxk: there's a section about tor
zhxk
Runa:however there is no section about torbutton
(Action) waves to dr|z3d
Runa
zhxk: but there is a section that explains how to make tor and foxyproxy work together
zhxk: isn't that what you are trying to do? :)
Neeraj
zhxk there is a section how tor works
means how foxy proxy works for tor
hi rudi_s
hi Runa
search for Tor in big fonts
Runa: i am not getting further comments on my proposal
i am worried
:(
Runa
Neeraj: no need to worry, we are all busy reading all the proposals :)
Neeraj: there's still time left for us to comment and for you to reply
zhxk
Neeraj:there is no section that epxlain how to make torbutton and foxyproxy work together
Runa
zhxk: http://foxyproxy.mozdev.org/faq.html#tor
zhxk: click on "how can I use foxyproxy with tor?"
zhxk: just read what it says and try that, you might not be able to use torbutton (I haven't tried it myself, so I don't know)
Neeraj
zhxk: i dont think there is any need to use torbutton
foxyproxy works fine
ok Runa
zhxk
Neeraj:so disable turbutton?
and the plugin?
Neeraj
i suggest u unistall foxy proxy and tor and then do as said in the tutorial
that will be much easier for you to do
or simply put in the proxy in the network settings as given in http://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-web.html
see the pic zhxk
