hi all!
the bridges wers blocked which i get from bridges@torproject.org
anyone has new ones?
thx!
gost
hello
any one awake?
Manny
yes
gost
maybe you can help me with a question i have...
Manny
youd have to ask it
gost
i have tor and privoxy installed and then run great for firefox; how do i use tor to filter all traffic, even when using irc channels?
Manny
set your irc client to use tor as your socks proxy
         

gost
im gonna give it a try, one sec
Manny
if you want to use tor for *everything* that is OS dependent
you would want your route all your networking to route thru tor's socks proxy
gost
Just so I am understanding you properly- Unless i set tor up through my os, i have to configure every application i want to run through tor to be configured thusly
Manny
correct
and bear in mind that tor doesnt handle UDP traffic
gost
yeah, i read that in the guide
Manny
only TCP
gost
i was just on another irc server and /whois my self and it showed my ip and i could see others ips' as they came into the channel, i just wanted eliminate that
i use the same ports for irc as i did when i set up ff?
Manny
socks proxy runs on port 9050
by default
gost
ok, which is why that was used on the config page, ok now im following you
Manny
8118 is for privoxy, an http proxy
gost
whats the difference between socks v4 and v5?
Manny
not sure, but I think you want 5, or if that's not avail, 4a
gost
yeah, i just googled it 5 is an extension, but i noticed that when megavideo stops, i turn on my proxy option and v5 works but v4 doesnt
Manny
gost: I would recommend finding an alternative to google if you are interested in privacy
we can have that convo on #nottor

Hello, novice question from someone who's only just heard of tor: with regard to this diagram: http://www.torproject.org/images/htw2.png - Let's say Alice is trying to download something illegal, and I'm the penultimate link in the chain, i.e. I have the unencrypted connection to the illegal content. Surely then my ISP can see this transfer and I could be prosecuted? In other words, can...
...illegal activity on Tor put other users at risk?
ln5
RobRobRob: yes, please see https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tips-running-exit-node-minimal-harassment for tips on how to handle it.
         

darrob
RobRobRob: yes, exit nodes are in danger of getting complaints etc. As a normal user or as a simple relay you are not in such danger though.
RobRobRob
Ok, so it's possible to configure Tor to act as a relay only and not an exit node?
darrob
RobRobRob: yes
RobRobRob
So what would one hope to gain from running an exit node?
darrob
RobRobRob: i believe there are defaults for that setting in the config file already. you'll just have to comment out that reject: *.* line to disallow exit traffic.
RobRobRob: helping out the cause? we do need exit nodes.
RobRobRob
i see
ok thanks for the help
darrob
RobRobRob: np. if you want to help out setting up a bridge is a good thing to do too.

https://www.torproject.org/torbrowser/dist/linux/i386/tor-browser-gnu-linux-1.0.5-dev-en-US.tar.gz is not working
phobos
trent_: nope, it isn't because 1.0.6 is current
trent_
yes i downloaded 1.0.6
but when i click start-tor-brower, nothing happens
im not an expert on linux
Sebastian
trent_: hm, interesting. Maybe helix shows up soon and might have some debugging ideas.
What are your system specs?
trent_
Laptop, intel 1.73 ghz, 512 mb memory, 31 gb harddrive
Sebastian
nah sorry I meant your operating system?
trent_
gNewSense 2.3 (deltah)
Manny
Sebastian: good evening
Sebastian
trent_: oh, I've never heard of that. Probably best to either file a bugreport or wait for helix
or both
Manny: what's up
Manny
just wanted to say hi
helix
trent_: can you open a terminal?
trent_
helix, yes
helix
trent_: okay, open a terminal, cd to tor-browser_en-US (or whatever the dir is called) and type: ./start-tor-browser
it doesn't execute if you just click on it from nautilus or whatever
is that what you were trying to do?
trent_
http://pastebin.com/2YVsmLtr
is something wrong
helix
oh boy
trent_: are you able to use the older one? 1.0.5 or older from http://archive.torproject.org/tor-package-archive/torbrowser/linux/
trent_: also what is the output of this command if you run it in a terminal: dpkg -l libc6
trent_
1.0.5 works
http://pastebin.com/p36wSehQ
helix
ugh I thought so. okay, thanks.
I guess use 1.0.5 for now and I'll work on a fix for 1.0.7
andares
Oh, far more people on here than on FreeNode.
I was wondering, is it actually illegal to operate tor in China?
Because I was a little worried, that if I gave someone a gateway, China might have not blocked the gateway, but instead monitored connections made to it in order to arrest the user or whatever.
Sebastian
No, it isn't illegal
andares
Ah, thanks Sebastian.
Sebastian
That doesn't mean you can't get in trouble for whatever you do while you're using it, of course.
andares
:(
Danged Chinese government.
Sebastian, unless they have control of enough exit nodes that they can do traffic analysis, they can't ever figure out what you're doing with it, right?
(Assuming you don't post "Hi, my name is John Doe and I'm supporting Falun Gong in China"
swissknife
what stops them to setup a bunch of exit-nodes at different ISP's worldwide ?
misc
the fact they do not really need proof to arrest people, i guess :)
swissknife
ha, fully agree...
andares
swissknife, that's been worrying me too.
Although, if you use hidden services, that problem goes away.
I'd set up a hidden service if I were doing anything like that.
In general, I'd be very wary of tor exit nodes.
Sebastian
andares: I wasn't talking about the Chinese in particular
andares
Sebastian, ah, right.
