wgreenhouse
(to whom you wouldn't want the distro issuing certs willy-nilly)
bootstrapped from a keyring included in the distro installer itself or so
jjweiss
microsoft does the same thing
wgreenhouse
it does? TIL.
I'm surprised they use third-party mirrors or gpg
jjweiss
they've been releasing isos on digitalriver and providing checksums on their site for a while now

jjweiss
anyway, the point was that caching proxies can be useful in some cases
in fact, I'd imagine the better counter-case would be linux distros rather than windows releases since linux distros have started using mirrorbrain, and mirrorbrain screws over caching proxies in a big way
qwerty1
gpg ms does not use
jjweiss
they checksum things though
TheCreeper
gpg != checksum
         

jjweiss
I personally don't know what they use and couldn't really care less about the specifics because I haven't used windows in any significant way since 2006ish
wgreenhouse
jjweiss: well, CDNs & co. don't blow up under Tor, they just may not actually provide you the highest download performance
since it will be dependent on the accident of which exit you start the update from
jjweiss
wgreenhouse: that was the OP's issue with it as I understood it
hence my caching proxy recommendation
they have to evaluate the merits themselves to decide if it helps create a workable, tor-based solution for their use case

i have a question about torbirdy: if i send emails in thunderbird with torbirdy enabled, that means that theoretically the exit can read the content (or at least header if pgp-encrypted body) of it, right?
qwerty1
same as email always is, yes
cacahuatl
Not if you connect to the SMTP server using TLS.
qwerty1
or that
F1F2
ok, thanks.
cacahuatl
Which you should be doing since if it can read the email, it can read your login
hrf
hello
I need to talk with somebody about the dissapered HIDDEN SERVICES VIDEO from YouTube
I need it
qwerty1
i don't know that one
hrf
how I can find it? As I see in YouTube no chance to watch it
qwerty1
what is it about?
hrf
also I am interesting why? (that was a super video for education orpuses)
cacahuatl
Does the tor project have a youtube channel? If it was just some random persons upload then, it's unlikely anyone here can help.
hrf
https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTorProject
as you can see totally reformed the channel
I am super interesting why
also I am searching in the whole internet but find nothing!!!
may be the NSA?
cacahuatl
may be it was space aliens too. does it seem likely?
lblissett
almost
hrf
so where is the video
?
I dont understand how and why the torproject deleted from the whole internet the video titled HIDDEN SERVICES
cacahuatl
Well, you could ask on the youtube channel or wait here and see if someone who'd know comes by or ask on the tor-talk mailinglist
         

Asamq
orweb is insecure
any work going on for android support?
velope
yes, lots. see the guardianproject website
Asamq
links? last o heard Firefox plugin got abandoned
cacahuatl
They're working on OrFox, I think it was part of GSOC or TSOP or similar?
Asamq
IMHO a full browser suite like the desktop version is best
cacahuatl

Asamq
oh cool
I was dreading starting work from scratch
arma
"Unfortunately, Disconnect Search is experiencing extremely heavy traffic."
cacahuatl
All too common recently :/
srg
Use ddg
arma
yeah. i try to be a boring normal user in general though. so sad.
cacahuatl
I was trying to use it earlier and was getting 0 results, instead of that error.
and it was searching for a specific repo on github, there definitely were results
izaki
Hi! I have two questions: Is it possible to only route over tor traffic directed to certain IPs?
the other is, in a large private network: would it be possible to deploy a private tor? any experiences on it?
cacahuatl
Yes and yes but for the second your network would likely be suboptimal because low possible set of paths and small anonymity set.
and for the first, iptables and transproxy would do it
izaki
Thanks a lot, I'll look into the routing/iptables trick
jacey
why is #nottor +i
ncl
it is a mystery
jacey
it wish there were clues
i need a hint
i actually don't know why '
velope: but I am ngh
i did the flooding out of my love for qwerty1
robin_
Hey, i am setting up a tor accesspoint on a RPi2. Is there a way tor uses multiple CPUs?
http://www.zerobin.tk/?8b2fbc5785ae8fc1#SjiUnIDxvanWvxz5CYiEg4A/M2/7qpL4RmEiA0bn/TU=
thats how my torrc looks like
but the load still looks single threaded
wseltzer
aaaas1
network errors...
ryonaloli_
w 3
velope
DCmbr: fix your client or connection
ryonaloli_
he's just quitting over and over
it doesn't look like it's a connection error
(no connection reset by peer etc)
Ralphy
are the directory authorities capable of measuring the advertised bandwidth properly? I mean, do they really populate the advertised bandwidth over time?
toralf_
got few times todeay mornign : "Request too large from address '[scrubbed]' to DirPort." - just me or was somebody else atatcked too ?
and "[warn] Content-Length is less than zero; it looks like someone is trying to crash us." 2-3 times too
ryonaloli_
let me check my logs
toralf_: in two middle relays (one running openbsd, and one running gentoo), i didn't get that erro anywhere
toralf_
it is an exit node here
ryonaloli_
perhaps ask on the mailing list
more people will see the message that way
qwerty1
are you still getting those?
toralf_
qwerty1: nope - just around 9:30 today (UTC+2)
Ralphy
I see nothing similar in my logs
3 relays (non exit)
toralf_
ok, so rather just a local issue
puff1sh
hi. i got the same [warn] of @g_ do i need to reinstall tor?
`apt-get install tor` will solve the problem?
Ralphy
pufflsh, are you in debian? if so, https://www.torproject.org/docs/debian.html.en#ubuntu
The procedure is simple and straight forward
" Do not use the packages in Ubuntu's universe. In the past they have not reliably been updated. That means you could be missing stability and security fixes."
