ello. I configured tor as exit node but after an hour its still not published. does this process take longer?
by published, https://check.torproject.org/?lang=en&small=1
thalunil
it can - just wait
gingerale
ExitPolicy accept *:80,reject *:*
is that correct? only allow port 80 but reject others
thalunil
it is
all fine, just wait

hi all, relative newbie to Tor here. wondering: is there a way to have Tor shuffle your route through the network on a per-request basis?
gingerale
thalunil: it's listed but not as exit node
ln5
gingerale: exit to only port 80 is not enough for being flagged as an exit node. you need at least two of 80, 443 and 6667.
gingerale
ah thanks
         

ln5
see dir-spec.txt for details
gingerale: https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/doc/spec/dir-spec.txt

lawrence: no, that's not possible easily
lawrence: that places a huge load on the Tor network, and it makes some attacks easier
lawrence
Sebastian_: I see, thanks
Sebastian_
lawrence: also, most people who request that feautre want to use it to game search engines or cheat at a game etc; so we're not implementing that
lawrence
Sebastian_: ah, that makes sense

mikeperry, ioerror: I'm planning on finally gluging the kool aid and running an exit (have a relay but its got a pitifully low cap thanks to comcast). Do you have any templates for the email to double checking that this is fine with the ISP? Also, any ISPs you particularly like?

Arathorn
if I change the ORlistenadress, outboundbindadress etc, and get it wrong, does my node disappear from the network list?
katmagic
Wrong?
Sebastian
Arathorn: yes, because reachability tests fail
Arathorn
yeah, I tried to get multiple IP's for one ethernet adapter, but failed to do so, and the IP I entered was thus faulty :)
I will reset the config and wait and see
any tips on reaching tor-banning networks as an exit node? I will run the node on a dedicated machine eventually, but is there any way around the banned IP problem?
swissknife
Arathorn: no, it's the "philosophy" of Tor to make it easy for sites that want to block exit-noes.
+d
Arathorn
no problem. I heard they ban the individual IP, not ranges, so with a dedicated machine the problem's solved
swissknife
Arathorn: but choose an IP thats not in your privat /16 region..
sometimes they block the full /8 region i have seen..
         

Arathorn
feel like giving me a crash course in that /16, /8-lingo? :)
newbie
is this also a help channel?
Sebastian
yes
Arathorn: /16 etc is referring to netmasks
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netmask for a discussion
newbie
when I do the second step of the tor installation guide for ubuntu I get this error. Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the list directory
If I use the root command I manage to get to the third step then get this error "
Package tor is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package tor has no installation candidate
"
I Tried both package repository links and get the same errors
any ideas?
Sebastian
hm
maybe you're not root
but not idea
newbie
already mentioned the whole root issue though
non root im stuck at 2nd and root im stuck at 3rd
steps
New to linux but I found guides that explained the whole root situation pretty well
Sebastian
repository links?
newbie
Added both repository links into the sources'list
err tried both same error
Arathorn
Sebastian, Very nice, I learned something. Seems like a awkward way of defining netmasks, but if that's the way it's done I'll conform :)
Sebastian
newbie: did you run apt-get update?
sorry kind of busy
newbie
If im not logged into root I cant even make it to that step and If I am
posted the error later
earlier
nobody has any other ideas?
Arathorn
newbie, Have any other instances of synaptic or update manager running?
Only one instance allowed at one time
newbie
I haven't added any other files to the sources.list if that is what you are referring to. Brand new to linux and only installed a firewall and vlc so far
I am running off of a flashdrive though
Arathorn
newbie, I'm talking about having multiple synaptic managers running, or having a synaptic process running, and trhen trying apt-get for eample. Won't work
newbie
Only one terminal running
Arathorn
you run all such commands with sudo?
newbie
Im just copying and pasting off of the website
so only if the website includes it
Arathorn
why run off a flashdrive? :) I'm not sure, but that could be an issu
e
newbie
several reason really dont feel like going into it
Arathorn
no problem .... I'm gonna say it's because of the flash card then :p
newbie
the amnesic distro Is made for flashdrives and live cd and runs all of its traffic through tor
So you sure its that?
Arathorn
not at all .... but unless you have tried the install on a "proper" installation, I'm gonna blame the flashdrive :)
(in other words, I'm out of suggestions)
newbie
sounds like a conection error though
sigh oh well any other place I can ask for help?
Runa
newbie: are you following the directions on the torproject website?
newbie
yes exactly
expect trying root which I already said gave different errors
Runa
I'm assuming ubuntu?
newbie
yes
Runa
ok, so you have added the correct lines to /etc/apt/sources.list ?
newbie
yes tried several of the mirrors
same exact error for every one
Runa
you are only supposed to add one line to that file
as explained under option two - https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en
newbie
I know
should have said tried several different ones separately
Runa
ok, what does 'sudo aptitude update' tell you? (you can paste the output on pastebin.com)
Arathorn
sudo apt-get update?
newbie
sigh get stuck on the second step with this error without root "Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the list directory
"
Runa
newbie: and what is the second step in this case?
newbie: if you follow the instructions on the website, it should be something with gpg. Is that correct?
newbie
gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv 886DDD89
gpg --export A3C4F0F979CAA22CDBA8F512EE8CBC9E886DDD89 | sudo apt-key add -
Runa
newbie: ok, please try 'sudo aptitude update' and paste the output on pastebin.com - then give us the url here
(I'm pretty sure the output will be the same, but hey)
Arathorn
newbie, perhaps a synaptic process has crashed. try sudo killall apt-get or killal synaptic
newbie
here is the thing you asked me to post earlier http://pastebin.com/8bQwrGnZ
was trying to do something else also so was kind of slow
Runa
newbie: can you also paste the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list to pastebin?
newbie
http://pastebin.com/mgbgkPfS there you go
Runa
ok, you have not added the one line that the website tells you to add :)
so add the line, save the file and run 'sudo aptitude update' again
newbie
added the http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org <DISTRIBUTION> main
line
the rest is done in command line is it not?
Runa
ok, then you need to switch <DISTRIBUTION> with the name of the distro that you are running
newbie
err yeah just copied the example off of the website. # deb http://tor.mirror.youam.de. <karmic> main is what I have written
Runa
I think that putting karmic should work, even if you run lucid (we don't have packages for lucid just yet)
deb http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org karmic main
is what you should have
save the file, run 'sudo aptitude update' and move on to adding the gpg key
Arathorn
newbie, Do you edit the file using sudo? So you're able to save the changes?
newbie
Same errors I was geting before
Runa
newbie: please paste the contents again and the output you get when you run 'sudo aptitude update'
Arathorn
newbie, Have you tried killing all apt-get processes?
newbie
If by file you are refering to the sources file I was using "sudo gedit"
Arathorn
newbie, nice
Runa
Arathorn: it worked before he added the line, so I'm not sure what's wrong
newbie
to acess the file
how do you kill all ap-get process again?
Arathorn
sudo killall apt-get
newbie
downloaded ubuntu yesterday and still learning
Arathorn
is there supposed to be a dot after the youam.de?
newbie
no process found so I guess that means there is nothing to kill
Runa
no, and you should use deb.torproject.org instead
