Hi!
I'm trying to add someone in TorChat but to no avail.
We can't see each others add contact requests.

hi,Can I ask a question about hosting a onion site on my webserver?
sjmurdoch
atagar: Is there a way to connect arm to Tor as run by a Tor Browser Bundle?
atagar: I can't see where to specify the cookie location, and arm just gives me a password prompt
atagar
sjmurdoch: Just double checked with Tor Browser 4.5.1 that it uses cookie auth. Tor browser opens its control port on 9151 rather than 9051 (which is the normal default), perhaps you're accidently connecting to another tor instance?
sjmurdoch
atagar: I changed the config to point at port 9151
atagar: And there's only one Tor instance running
atagar
If it's still giving you a password prompt then I'd next suggest telneting to that port and running 'PROTOCOLINFO'
         

sjmurdoch
atagar: Log is at http://pastebin.com/GDfuhv4L
atagar: Output is at http://pastebin.com/bXRKf96V
atagar
Strange, looks like it should work. You could give the nyx git repo a try. It's still a work in progress but should definitely work better with regard to connecting at least.
('git clone https://git.torproject.org/nyx.git')
sjmurdoch
I'm using the version from Homebrew
atagar
Oh, think I know what's up. Tor accepts *either* password or cookie auth but iirc arm gets confused when there's both and opts for the password.
sjmurdoch
Ah, yes TBB is setting a hashed control password
atagar: Should nyx work better?
atagar: And should I just install stem for PyPi?
atagar
sjmurdoch: Nyx is the rewrite of arm. Again, it's a work in progress but sure, why not? I'd suggest running that clone command mentioned above, then running 'run_nyx' from there (or installing if you want).

hi I'm trying to use TorBrowser with an HTTP proxy (I2P) but I've run into what I think is the bug on here: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/16395
sjmurdoch
atagar: I get Unable to start nyx: No module named stem.util.connection
user123
Is the decision to make TorButton not compatible with running other proxies a design choice or unexpected behavior?
What security or privacy features will I not have if I disable TorButton - which makes everything work
Is this the right channel for this discussion?
qwerty1
it's javascript and xul in a zip file
hack it yourself :p
mind you, it's true documentation is lacking
atagar
sjmurdoch: Nyx requires stem (https://stem.torproject.org/download.html).
user123
I'm alright with using the workaround of disabling TorButton but I need to make sure there are no serious problems with anonymity
can someone pleae confirm
sjmurdoch
atagar: Fails with Python 3 but works with Python 2
atagar
sjmurdoch: Yup. Arm could only work with python2 since it used TorCtl. I plan to make nyx python3 compatible (since Stem is), but first gonna get the rewrite done first. ;)
sjmurdoch
atagar: nyx worked for a while then crashed
atagar: http://pastebin.com/WQxH1cuf
atagar: I also couldn't get arm to work even with the correct password. I got the error message "'NoneType' object has no attribute '__getitem__'" with no traceback
arma
sjmurdoch: sounds like you might want to put the traceback in as a trac ticket, if atagar doesn't notice it here?
(sjmurdoch: oh, this is why python3 which is known to not work?)
s/why/with/, ugh
atagar
sjmurdoch: Concerning nyx looks like the menu crashed when you pressed 'm'. Nice catch and easy to fix. The menu isn't one of the bits I've finished rewriting.
arma: Is I already mentioned arm didn't work with python3 because it used TorCtl and nyx will eventually support python3, but not until I'm done with the rewrite.
oh, missed the 'with' correction - if he's running python3 then yup, woudn't be surprised :P

Hey guys have any of you used chutney to generate exit node traffic ?
Is it possible ?
cacahuatl
I have a strange sense of dejavu...
cybertron
dejavu ?
         

kernelcorn
it's like dejavu all over again
mancha
when i see a fork in the road, i take it
chromium
https://plus.google.com/+FrancoisBeaufort/posts/UuAThGHvuqx "External Developers can now build a full-fledged Chromium browser by building the brand new chrome_public_apk target.", now we can have a chromium-based tor browser for android also
arma
chromium
arma: i understand
arma
but yes, compared to the *current* browsers on mobile, we sure need more options
kernelcorn
on mobile? I wouldn't choose Chrome. NoRootFirewall shows it making seemingly-random Internet connections the instant I connect to wifi or mobile data, even if I just restarted my phone and never started Chrome. Pandora is even worse. I wouldn't choose leaky apps.
you know what mobile browser doesn't do that? Firefox.
chromium
arma: maybe in the future
whitanne_
kernelcorn: at least firefox on mobile allows me to install adblock
chromium
kernelcorn: the source code modifications will stop that
srg
whitanne_: Try uBlock Origin
(on ff mobile)
kernelcorn
I heard good things about uBlock
chromium
check https://github.com/gorhill/uMatrix/ for chromium and chromium-based web browsers
whitanne_
i don't know the difference between uBlock and uBlock Origin
kernelcorn
neither do I
srg
whitanne_: Origin is by the original developer.
Regular ublock was "given away" by the original dev, but then he realized he didn't like what the new dev was doing
whitanne_
ah
srg
so origin is the original dev's version of it
(in actual use by an end user, it's hard to tell the difference)
But I started using on my desktop firefox and my mobile firefox and I'm a fan
chromium
and firefox
for chromium and chromium-based web browsers, and firefox
