katmagic, I added some thoughts to the bug
katmagic, we're worried that we regress things
and we don't have automated tests for all kind of features, unfortunately
but maybe someone of the other people will tell us there are already automated tests, let's see

SteveH66
hello all, I am having trouble using TOR with firefox on Windows Vista Home Edition Premium
I have the TOR button extension installed
it works fine the first time I use it after install, then after that I get a message that I have no internet connection, was wondering if someone might have an idea what's going on, thanks
SwissTorExit
hi SteveH66, have you installed privoxy or polipo ?
SteveH66
i believe it installed polipo, whichever is the default
SwissTorExit
it's need to communicate with Tor while Torbutton use it by defaut, you can always try set to socks5 but FF are know not working very well with it
well it come if you download the package and install it, yes
         

SteveH66
it shows a polipo directory
SwissTorExit
what Tor version or package have you ?
SteveH66
so would it be better to install privoxy then? the faq seemed to indicate polipo was more secure
i downloaded the latest version
for windows
SwissTorExit
Tor are running ?
SteveH66
not at the moment, should I start it up?
SwissTorExit
well sure, that's the first think with the polipo
i think that you have vidalia, right ?
SteveH66
yes, vidalia
ok, Tor is running
SwissTorExit
so start Tor from vidalia and now you can reach the web
https://check.torproject.org/ test here
SteveH66
i get a message "Internet connection does NOT seem to be working"
at the top it says "The proxy server is refusing connections"
SwissTorExit
i am on cooking sorry, i haven't time yet :/, you must open in vidalia you log and see what Tor said about it's starting and runing
after pastebin and put the link here, someone will help you
sorry SteveH66, not my habitude , brb

SteveH66: no please, use www.pastebin.com
SteveH66
oh, sorry
SwissTorExit
don't paste your log on irc :P
SteveH66
sorry, not too experienced with IRC :S
SwissTorExit
no problem, don't be worrie
wait a moment to see that it say you are connected to tor network ect and after copy -paste all log in pastebin and give us the link, now i must go, sorry
SteveH66
thank you for your help SwissTor :)
SwissTorExit
it's maybe just polipo, but i don't use it, but see the Tor log will help anyway to find out :D
you are weclome
open the port in your firewall btw and use upnp if possible for you, it will more easy to config your router
SteveH66
thanks SwissTorExit

whats the difference between privoxy and polipo?
OFFShare
I don't know the inside of polipo. I use privoxa. It has a huge list of configurations, block adds, block popups, block lists of sites you dont'want, and much more.
install it and do: http://p.p to get all possible config options.
-privoxy--

Hey
katmagic
Hi.
Whywontthenamechange
Does anyone know how to make tor work with Gmail?
ninja
yes
open tor browser
enter gmail.com into url bar
press enter
what doesn't work?
Whywontthenamechange
I was using firefox with torbutton
ninja
you might have to click use html somethingsomething mode in the bottom
html simple old mode or something
that's what I use successfully
katmagic
You'll likely want to use https://mail.google.com/ to prevent exit eavesdropping. (You should probably use that anyway to prevent ISP eavesdropping.)
Whywontthenamechange
Yeah, Html mode worked
Thanks
Ew_zilla
howdy all
trying to figure out to get this to work
katmagic
Get what to work?
Ew_zilla
tor
says in my brower "tor diabled"
katmagic
Double click on the Tor button (the thing that says 'Tor Disabled'.)
Ew_zilla
lol ok
katmagic
Err, single click, I guess.
Ew_zilla
how do I use it for chat?

portis
hi!
Zed
nou
arma
hi
portis
i know this must hae been discussed a lot before
but i'd like to contribute with a relay
but not an exit node
how dangerous (legally) can this be for me?
arma
portis: germany?
should be just fine. there are a few downsides, but none of them legal
one downside is that after a while you might not be able to reach websites in china from that ip address
another downside is that you might not be able to reach certain irc networks from that ip address. most irc networks are smart enough to distinguish exit relays from non-exit relays,
portis
yes
arma
but there are a few that hate tor and want it to die and want to punish you for being related to it.
portis
the downsides would not affect me as i would set up a vserver
i guess
arma
ok. should be fine then.
portis
so this ip would be dedicated to tor
arma
nobody has been hassled for non-exit relays, even in germany
portis
ok, thanks :)
arma
many exit relays aren't hassled either, especially legally speaking
most hassles you'll get are from your ISP, if you're an exit relay, because they'll get complaints and they want to make money which means they don't want to answer email
if you're getting a vserver, be sure not to get scammed by one of those vservers that doesn't give you any sockets or buffer space or the like
(there's a faq entry with a few more details)
portis
i would get it at keyweb.de, the german privacy foundation are hosting some of their servers there too
and i would inform them
in advance
arma
ok
murble
portis: but they presuably have a dedicated host.
portis
i once got one server of mine misused as proxy and have the feds visiting me
i dont want this again
murble: sure, but its a money thing...
