BarkerJr
well, seems like linux will only send outgoing packets via one interface, so not a tor bug, a linux one
bja
BarkerJr: sounds like you need to feedle with the kernel routing maps. Take a look at route
BarkerJr
right, I'm not willing to get that deep into linux :)
bja
BarkerJr: man route it is not that difficult

hi
Aviator
hi all
i want some help in tar
any one u can tell me if i lk with tar use pal
if i can use paltalk with tor
keb
this is the Tor support channel, not tar
         

Aviator
ya sorry for my typo
keb
oh lol
Aviator
keb can i pm ya
keb
no
what is paltalk
Aviator
ok
well paltalk is a voice and video chat software
and i want to open it with TOr
keb
then probably not, because those typcally use UDP but there are some exceptions
Aviator
i just installed tor today and i want to know if i can open paltalk with it
hmm
Tryst
can voip works fine with Tor at all?
Aviator
i guess it does
coz i have seen ppl using it
actually paltalk has banned few countries from using its facility for free
and mine lies in those
so i want to change my IP and connect to paltalk
would there be any possibility of it
i have googled to find how to use paltalk from banned country and mostly ppl use SocksChain (to get an IP) and then use paltalk via SocksCap
and socksCap shows the IP address which one feed in it from SocksChain
keb
http://server.iad.liveperson.net/hc/s-6038405/cmd/kbresource/kb-4806917081136611423/view_question!PAGETYPE?sq=proxy&sf=101113&sg=0&st=898392&documentid=8863&action=view
ok so it can use tcp
but it seems to need you to listen on some ports for incoming connections
Aviator
well it sounds greek to me
"listen on some ports for incomming connection" what does this mean
keb
hmm on the other hand, that page says it uses outbound connections
so then the question is how to force it to go through Tor
yeah sockscap
Aviator
well
well what ip adress should i enter in SocksCap
keb
127.0.0.1
port 9050
thats the socks server
dr|z3d
socks 5, remote dns resolution.
Aviator
ok thanxs dear
and should i put tor to activate
in firefox
keb
firefox config will be completely independent of paltalk config
dr|z3d
Indeed. Firefox is a separate issue.
Aviator
ok
dr|z3d
For Firefox use, make sure you're using Torbutton.
         

Aviator
so how will i configure tor with paltalk
or u mean that tor does not any effect on paltalk
dr|z3d
As we've already indicated.
keb
but you can make sure your Tor is working according to the instructions at http://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-windows.html.en
dr|z3d
Configure sockscap, create a shortcut to paltalk in it, then run.
Aviator
ok
i did dat
dr|z3d
If paltalk's using UDP, or has Tor exit nodes banned, it won't work.
Aviator
and i put 127.0.0.1 and port 9051
dr|z3d
port 9050
Aviator
ok
dr|z3d
not 9051.
Aviator
i will do dat now
lets see
dr|z3d
pleasae read the instructions we give you.
Aviator
well if i may know one more thing
keb
and did you create an application profile for paltalk
in sockscap
Aviator
ya
keb
example at http://www.beaglesoft.com/clwaproxysockscap.htm
Aviator
i selected the programme after browing it
an it autaomically made that profile
keb
great
Aviator
is it possible dat if i have an IP adress of USA
which my bro uses
and i can put dat IP address in socksCap .. will it connect to paltalk using that ip address
keb
you may have to setup your Tor to select exit nodes in usa
Mops
Good morning! I have failed with settin up a relay using port forwarding, so I put my pc(win7) in the DMZ is that ok?
Aviator
well if i dont select any exit node
and just put the ip address u told me with sock and even if tor is not on ... i will be able to use paltalk
with sockscap?
keb
Mops it might work but it puts your computer at risk
Mops
ports were unreachable, waiting for this config to run so far the usual on both: [07:25:34] DNS Hijacking Detected - Tor detected that your DNS provider is providing false responses for domains that do not exist. Some ISPs and other DNS providers, such as OpenDNS, are known to do this in order to display their own search or advertising pages.
keb I am aware of the possible risks, not bothered though, but do want to help the community.
keb
Aviator why do you want us to repeat what we already said
Aviator
sorry keb i aint an expert in computers and just wanted to be sure
btw i really appreciate ur help
if u wanna know anything abt flying i might be of any help .. lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
keb
Aviator you can become more sure each time you read the instructions and match them to your experience
thanks thats cool but i dont have wings :/
Mops thanks for running a relay!
Mops
keb no worries, thing is I fail at running it, since there is conncetivity problem(hence my presence here)
keb
Mops the DNS provider is a separate problem from ports being unreachable
Aviator
well keb i tried dat but paltalk doesnot connect through sockscap
Mops
keb yes
keb
Aviator i didnt see anything on paltalk's site about only working in usa
Aviator
well it not about only working in USA
it works in most of european countries
keb
Mops can you paste your tor log to pastebin.nl
Aviator
they have banned the free version of paltalk in middle east, Iran, south Asia
one has to have a paid version of it
keb
how did they do that
Mops
keb so far I think it's ok: [07:39:41] Server Port Reachability Test Successful! - Your relay's server port is reachable from the Tor network!
keb
nice
Aviator
they have blocked the IP addresses of these countries
though i really think dat it is racist act on their part
Mops
keb does that mean that Im online?
keb
Aviator ok so you need to add an ExcludeExitNodes option to your torrc
Aviator
if rest of the world can enjoy its free version then y not us
ok how to do it?
keb
Mops it is very promising
Mops
(Action) keeps his fingers crossed
keb
Aviator see the info at https://www.torproject.org/faq#ChooseEntryExit and check if Vidalia lets you exclude nodes, i dont remember
Aviator
ok
Mops
afaik vidalia == GUI frontend, the tor itself is the same everywhere
keb
yes but for windows users and newbies vidalia may be easier
Mops
and i appreciate that
keb, nope same nonesence: http://pastebin.com/syHNKavY and look at the lag between starting the test/responce
i do understand it is difficult to help me without knowing my config.
keb
Mops dont worry about DirPort for now, it is not needed for every relay
Mops
it is just default basically + dmz'ed pc
keb nontheless, this should not occure
I sence dodgy ISP
keb
Mops your ip address doesnt show up at http://torstatus.kgprog.com/tor_exit_query.php
Mops
back in lithuania i didn't have any problems like that
keb
but maybe you didnt set your node as an exit
Mops
keb i've set it up for everything but web
as in cp = prison in the uk
don't want to risk it
keb
the police know what a tor server is, dont worry
Mops
the 2tick" on web added
keb
it might take a while for your node to show up on the directory
Mops
still there is no me on tor network map
keb
what are you using for DNS servers
Mops
im not going to work today so my goal is to set it up. (had a fight with my ex fiancee)
keb the DNS from my ISP
as in my landlords ISP which is Talktalk(evil)
keb
some ISPs in UK are part of the phorm experiment that promotes advertising
so they may be hijacking erroneous dns requests
you can try google's dns servers as an experiment for now: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
Mops
they bloody do. lol at bug in vidalia tor network map, you arrange by name(clicking on the tab) then refres, arrangement forgets itself and restes
isn't google an evil?
keb
at least they dont redirect failed dns to ads
its just a test to see if that message goes away
Mops
ok, working on that(btw i thought openDNS were cool)
keb
there are supposed to be ways to get opendns not to do that too
but i forget how
Mops
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4
let's see if it works
the web browsing is ok
should I stop/start the relay or just wait?
keb
send a HUP signal to the relay to reread config
or restart lol
Mops
HUP signal?
keb
kill -1
Mops
where do I type that?
keb
you need the pid of the relay
then kill -HUP pid
Mops
ohh I see
the tor is running self tests now
just cancelled my work for today >_<
keb since there were no DNS hijacking message in the first few minutes I take it is ok(the DNS error was straight away on previous config)
keb
hmm what if i want the tor server to show the web page on port 80 but dont want to serve directory requests
Mops
keb
so in your router you said the computer is in DMZ
Mops
yes
keb
i cant ping that ip address
Mops
before that I have had port forwarding but the same error occured
keb
is icmp blocked
port forwarding should be enough
did you restart router after settings
Mops
yes
now even turned off the 2firewall2(my landlolrd doesn't know about me having access to the router
lol default passwords
keb
did you do something weird in torrc regarding bindaddress or listenaddress
Mops
keb no for sure, dont even know what you're talking about :)
did try to reinstall the bundle twice
keb
oh you configured with vidalia
hmm
Mops
keb sorry: http://pastebin.com/q70x3a7q
my fault it was the router's firewall it seems
doesn't make sense though
YES
[08:27:17] Your Relay is Online - Your relay is now online and available for Tor clients to use. You should see an increase in network traffic shown by the Bandwidth Graph within a few hours as more clients learn about your relay. Thank you for contributing to the Tor network!
still no mentioning of me on te relay list...
keb
yeah they update every few hours
Mops
finally! thank you keb for the patience.
still, I don't get the logic behind this crappy siemens router
keb
np
i drank 3 cups of coffee after dinner and cant sleep lol
Mops
coffee makes me sleepy :) I drunk a lot of alcohol yesterday after breaking up with my fiancee so i cant sleep long(slept for 3 hours)
