hi

What's the word on HORNET?
http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/07/researchers-claim-theyve-developed-a-better-faster-tor/
arma
hornet is a research paper
it is great that research papers exist. that's how the field becomes better.
if you are wondering about using hornet, it does not exist, and likely never will
kernelcorn
no source code along with their paper?
qif
what is the recent minimum uploadspeed you would recommend to help the tor network?
kernelcorn
5 Mbits
but more is obviously more ideal, but Tor does have some difficulties load-balancing so I wouldn't anticipate full utilization of that connection
qif
kernelcorn: can i configure my tor client for example to use only connections with 100mbit and more?
for example when i know that i have to tranfer much/huge data and have access to fast network
kernelcorn
you can customize it to use only specific entry or exit nodes, or nodes in specific countries, but without modifying the Tor source I don't think it's possible
faster nodes also have higher consensus weights, so they have a higher chance of being chosen anyway
cacahuatl
kernelcorn there is no src, it's just a paper :P I don't think anyones ever attempted to implement it yet.

qif
i see some servers run now ORPort on 443 and DIRPort on 80. Thats better then the typical 9001 and 9030?
cacahuatl
It can be useful to dir ORPort 443 for (being the guard of) users behind restrictive networks who can only make connections on certain ports, otherwise it's not really an issue.
*use orport 443
kernelcorn
yes, because as I recently discovered in two occasions, 443/80 is nice because some firewalls only allow those ports
right
last week I was connected to a wireless network that only allowed 443/80/8080, so I couldn't check my mail with Thunderbird. Fortunately, many Tor relays run on those ports. :)
qif
why is ipredator not any more with huge difference the number 1 at speed? have something changed?
have i understand right, that when using 443 and 80 in a typical home network, you have to forward those ports to the tor server and in this case you loose the functionality of using the web, right?
kernelcorn
if you start a Tor relay on a home network, yes you will have to forward 443 and 80
but you can still use the web, it doesn't prevent you from doing that in any respect
inbound 443/80 is distinct from outbound 443/80
dbclk
is there a good electronic store on the deep web?
when I mean good...I mean reliable
kernelcorn
I seriously doubt that there is one that is legitimate
honos
there is...one in the us...
I think digikey?
g0rx
any way to hide the vps ip in real
and use it only in tor ?
kernelcorn
hide the VPS?
g0rx
it goes like xxxx.onion
but when type the real ip i can get it lso in tor
any way to hide the real ip server of the vps
cacahuatl
Configure your webserver properly
g0rx
explain more
i start the webserver
and webserver access via local host and
and ip
cacahuatl
It only needs to listen on localhost, and then read the manual to plug other data leaks.
g0rx
any user can access to that ip
cacahuatl
Not your personal sysadmin though
g0rx
so what i want to do
server access only to tor and localhost
don t want real ip go to the net
beside tor
cacahuatl
Consult the manual and documentation for the webserver
g0rx
should i run server
and reconfig the firewall and rules
any suggest ?
kernelcorn

g0rx
thank you
qif
is there any webservice that can be used to scan if all ports are closed beside the one that should be opened? a service where you can set start port and end port and press scan?
srg
qif: there might be a few, google/duckduckgo it.
qif: But in general, that can be a potential legal issue for the hosting provider
qif: Just get a cheap VPS or something, scan from that.
gamambel
srg: qif: there's a lot of those, but most are limited to scanning your own IP, not arbitrary IPs
if that's what you want, i'm sure you can find them on your least hated search engine
cacahuatl
Alternatively, review your iptables config...
yupfs
why can't i join #nottor?
velope
#nottor needs some calming. new nicks won't be able to join for a while.
yupfs
how long will that time be?
velope
don't wait up and lose sleep
EmptySpace
(Action) holds his breath
Pancakes
velope: I saw you removed the invite exempt from me
for #nottor
velope
nicks that haven't been around for over a month are routinely swept up
Pancakes
can you add me back on the invite exempt?
pretty please? :^)
velope
not adding any now. but i'll invite, and see how it goes.
Pancakes
thanks, velope!
UltimateNate
Hi velope.
Pancakes
fag
ryonaloli_
velope: pls invite
i won't post it again
Pancakes, SHADOWIMPACT want to continue discussion in here? :^)
Pancakes
#notnottor
ryonaloli_
meh, too lazy to go there. i just want to get an invite to #nottor
also #notnottor was specifically made to keep this kind of bs out of it
so going there would be rude
SHADOWIMPACT
well i was about to say that disconnect.me has the images in the "protected" category
so no nsfw apparently
ryonaloli_
SHADOWIMPACT: huh, i didn't know it did that
but disconnect doesn't require javascript, right?
SHADOWIMPACT
yes it has them under 'Protected Tools'
ryonaloli_
even for the bing mode?
SHADOWIMPACT
in unprotected tools it only has maps
ryonaloli_
what does protected mean, that it requires some account or soemthing?
oh
ve1ope
velope.
SHADOWIMPACT
probably no nsfw stuff
there might be some option though
ryonaloli_
i think by protected it means it proxies that
whereas unprotected means that it will link you directly to google
SHADOWIMPACT
oshi you're right
