deprecated?
srg
I'd recommend using sks-keyservers
and using hkps (ssl)
torQUES
thanks I learn chinese
Serialbox
isn't everyone being trendy and using keybase now? :)
srg
Serialbox: I don't
Serialbox
srg: neither do I mostly, but I felt like being a smart ass
kernelcorn
if anyone is running Linux and wants to try out https://github.com/Jesse-V/OnioNS-client, I'd sure appreciate it
Chocolate_Chip
Is anyone here able to help me? I am attempting to run tor-arm in a command line on Debian and it says that ControlPort is not enabled.
srg
Chocolate_Chip: enable the controlport?
         

Chocolate_Chip
I don't know what that is or how to do that
srg
torrc
Chocolate_Chip
Is that somekind of Linux firewall?
srg
https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en
ctrl+f for controlport
no, it's a tor setting
Chocolate_Chip
Ok
kernelcorn
nano /etc/tor/torrc
Chocolate_Chip
This is a little confusing
srg
Chocolate_Chip: what are you trying to do? Run a relay or just use tor?
torrc is tor's configuration file
Peng
The Debian package should already have a control socket enabled.
Chocolate_Chip
I want to proxy Evolution through tor, and use tor-arm as a background process so I don't need to have the entire browser-bundle open just to check email and Tox
I just enabled ControlPort, and I get the same error
kernelcorn
reload tor with "sudo service tor reload"
Peng
arm is management program. You don't need it. The "background process" you want is tor.
is a*
srg
kernelcorn: wheezy is oldstable, will you provide packages for jessie?
Chocolate_Chip
OK
ok.
Peng
And, like I said, I'm pretty sure ControlSocket is enabled by default, so you don't even need to go messing with the config.
Chocolate_Chip
Got a lot of error messages
kernelcorn
srg: I could try, I don't have a Wheezy box. They should work on Jessie though. Try it and find out!
*I don't have Jessie box. I have Wheezy.
srg
kernelcorn: ah alrighty.
Chocolate_Chip

kernelcorn
srg: if not, please file a bug. You might get a dependency error with either Boost or Botan, but I think there's a good chance that it should work.
         

Chocolate_Chip
Tor is not already running. I have no idea why it says that port is in use on the local machine
kernelcorn
Chocolate_Chip: you are running Tor manually, but Tor is already running in the background as a service daemon
Chocolate_Chip
Oh.
It is?
kernelcorn
hence the manually-started one can't bind to 9050 because the daemon is bound to it
Chocolate_Chip
So that means I'm already connected to the network or what
kernelcorn
so don't run Tor manually like that.
Chocolate_Chip
How can I enable the connection
kernelcorn
modify /nano/etc/torrc appropriately, then issue "sudo service tor reload" to apply the settings to the system daemon.
Chocolate_Chip
Ok. I enabled controlport, and have reloaded the service
So I am now connected to the tor network for whatever I want to proxy?
kernelcorn
Chocolate_Chip: you can confirm that Tor is connected by "sudo tail -15 /var/log/tor/notice.log" I think that's the default logfile, although it might be /var/log/tor/log
Chocolate_Chip
Well, I tried using the proxy
kernelcorn
otherwise, you can point anything you want at Tor's SOCKS5 port at localhost:9050
Chocolate_Chip
Didn't work
My port wasd 9150
kernelcorn
no, the system installation uses 9050
Chocolate_Chip
oh
kernelcorn
the Tor Browser uses 9150 so that it doesn't overlap with a system installation of Tor (for which I am very grateful)
Chocolate_Chip
Changed the control port back. My terminal seems to be stalled
Job for tor.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status tor.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
Did it again
choco@debian:~$ sudo service tor reload
Job for tor.service invalid.
choco@debian:~$
Oh. I think i see what I did. What is the default control port?
cacahuatl
control port is 9051 for system, 9151 for tor browser
9050/9150 are for socks
Chocolate_Chip
Ok
Does Gmail block tor access?
kernelcorn
I don't think so
srg
no, but they might flag your account and make you verify it
Chocolate_Chip
Hmm. I can access oher mail providers through my proxy, but evolution keeps asking me to authernticate for gmail, like it can't use it
kernelcorn
I haven't had a problem with IMAP in Thunderbird
Chocolate_Chip
Turned off the proxy, got an email saying "SOMEONE HAS YOUR PASSWORD!" Don't worry. We blocked the sign in attempt/
How do I disable this
marcusw
lol idiots
they mean well I suppose...
Chocolate_Chip
No they don't. They're google
But I can't find any good alternatives right now
static
googles not evil. i mean they may not be the best in the world but they try i think
Chocolate_Chip
Edward Snowden has proof they are conspirators against the populous
wgreenhouse
Chocolate_Chip: gmail has inconsistent results for tor users
marcusw
it would be pretty funny to proxy through someone's connection, run a bunch of automated queries on google, and watch google blacklist the IP forever with no explanation
static
i never saw that one, but i suppose ill believe it
wgreenhouse
some people are okay, some people get their accounts blocked and have to log in to account settings
they're not willing to explain what's up
marcusw
they probably don't even know
it's getting easier and easier to get automatically flagged as "malicious"
and harder and harder to fix that
and now that like 80% of the internet is either google or cloudflare...
Chocolate_Chip
hahahahahah

Can't even contact the fu*kers about it
srg
google is not friendly to tor
Chocolate_Chip
I know, but what else is there. I want Autistici, but I'm not an activist
They won't let me have an account just because "I want to be hidden from the NSA and I want Mah Freedoms"
marcusw
riseup maybe?
