I setup a hidden service in vidalia
only one
and i'm getting error launching circuit to node xxx for service xxxx
When I try to access it with polipo it gives me 502 and when using tor directly(socks5) i eithre get a firefox error message or a blank page
j_dalmond
anyone here, guys?
katmagic
Hello.
j_dalmond
hello -). got a question
is it normal that my linux firefox with tor button can only load sites without palipo?
katmagic
I'm not sure exactly what you mean.
Do you mean that it only works when you disable Polipo in the TorButton configuration?
j_dalmond
yes. exactly
katmagic
No, that's not normal. What did you install, specifically?
j_dalmond
well, first I installed tor itself by adding the key in the terminal.
katmagic
What OS are you on?
         

j_dalmond
ubuntu 10.04
polipo already installed
katmagic
Did you modify /etc/polipo/config like it says in the guide?
j_dalmond
no, because, that file is apparently read-only
katmagic
Yes. You have to edit it as root. Run `gksudo gedit /etc/polipo/config`.
j_dalmond
i'll try it out now, thanks
katmagic
Maybe there should be a Tor installation shell script.
j_dalmond
well, I modified config successfully
but it doesn't work
but when I switch off polipo, the check site says that i use tor
may it be that polipo is not necessary?

Hello, me again, with my timezone issues (he he).
I found another website that tries to detect your timezone:
http://finance.yahoo.com/
It says the following: "TZ" : "EDT", "TZOFFSET" : "-14400"
To see this you have to open up the source page (CTRL+U) and search for TZ
This offset is incorrect for me, I only have an offset of 3 hours, but I got this result while not using TOR and having javascript enabled. It's the same result I get using TOR.
It's like Firefox is reporting a bad timezone to the requesting website regardless of wether torbutton is on or off.
Looks like no one is around, I'll check back tomorrow, bye.

Oh, joy! Scroogle's offline again. :/

Been using tor a while now and figured i'd setup my own server - is there something else i am supposed to do after its setup? there doesnt seem to be much traffic going though it
dr|z3d
doodleyfish: How long has it been up?
doodleyfish
about 30mins lol
dr|z3d
Give it a few hours, and then make noises if you're not seeing traffic.
doodleyfish
ah, k
dr|z3d
You might want to give atagar's arm script a look.. that will give you a good idea of how your node's functioning.
doodleyfish
ah, sweet
there was me using bwm-ng
just to clarify, reject *:*, accept *:80, accept *:443 will only allow port 80 and 443 through ?
weasel
that should reject all.
doodleyfish
would it not then apply the accept ?
dr|z3d
Accept before reject.
doodleyfish
and just like that traffic is going though :)
         

dr|z3d
\o/
doodleyfish
how much upstream / downstream does the average tor server have?

is tordnsel service (https://www.torproject.org/tordnsel/) active?
if so how could one test it? i tried the usual dnsbl test using 127.0.0.2 but i get no hit
atagar
alnr: tordnsel is alive and kicking, but currently being rewritten by hbock for gsoc
well, actually not really 'alive and kicking'... just meant it should be working :)
(Action) glugs some more coffee
dr|z3d
"bathing in a pool of its own vomit, but breathing?" ;)
Sebastian
it works just fine
dr|z3d
Of course it is, that was _humor_.
atagar
alnr: If you're interested in the tordnsel functionality then I'd suggest contacting hbock (he's worked with it most recently and hence can help) and he might be interested in feedback/testers for his project (description and updates are at http://tor.spanning-tree.org/)
alnr
ok, thanks, i'm probably misunderstanding how to use it. the syntax is different than usual dnsbl (including the target ip/port, not only the remote). is this a proper test? host 2.0.0.127.80.<myserverip>.torexit.dan.me.uk
(and i would assume that 127.0.0.2 would be in the list for testing)
Sebastian
in the list for testing?
alnr
oh wait i think i mixed up the list there
Sebastian
I would expect that to return nxdomain because the relay most likely doesn't allow exiting to 127.0.0.0/24
erm
alnr
dan.me.uk is an entrely differnt proj.
Sebastian
/8, of course
alnr: that too
alnr
but for tordnsel i thought the forwmat was <incomingip>.<myport>.<myserver>......
and usually, dnsbls included a 127.0.0.2 in them just for testing the list
Sebastian
Some exit nodes can actually exit to that address
so that isn't an option here
alnr
ok, so i guess i need to get hold of a real exit node ip to test
Sebastian
so, let's say the exit node's ip address is 11.12.13.14
you want to know whether that exit node can be used to contact port 45 on host 21.22.23.24
the query is then:
14.13.12.11.45.24.23.22.21.ip-port.exitlist.torproject.org
alnr
ok yes, thats my understanding. only that i cant test it with 2.0.0.127, i need a real exit node ip, how can i discover one?
Sebastian
feel free to use 78.47.18.110
that's my relay
dr|z3d
alnr: http://torstatus.blutmagie.de will give you plenty.
alnr
ah ty both
Sebastian
(you still need to reverse it)
alnr
is this right (hostip is what google.com resolves to for me) 110.18.47.78.80.104.204.14.72.ip-port.exitlist.torproject.org
Sebastian
alnr: that should return "doesn't allow"
I don't exit on port 80
try port 443
alnr
ok, i got a positive :)
so the meaning of the query is not 'is ip1 a tor exit node' but 'is ip1 a tor exit node that can connect to ip2:port'
Sebastian
yes

Can anyone help me with installing TOR Browser onto a memory stick?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.04
Runa
mib_97fkep: get the tor browser bundle for linux and just copy it on to a memory stick
mib_97fkep
Tried that.....got a bunch of error messages
Runa
please paste those error messages on pastebin.com and give us the url
mib_97fkep
Ok....hang on....
Ok...here it is ---- http://pastebin.com/BcRyZW6N
Runa
you probably want to use 'sudo tar -zxvf' before the filename
mib_97fkep
Ok.....thank you.....I'll give it a try.
Runa
np
Sebastian
why sudo?
seems strange
Runa
Sebastian: I assume you need root to access the memory stick
but I might be wrong
Sebastian
hm
strange
vegard
maybe it's a FAT filesystem that doesn't support symlinks?
