The Tor Installation Guide
This guide allows you to use the anonymous TOR network with most web browsers and command line tools such as wget. Begin by installing TOR:
# tazpkg get-install tor # tazpkg get-install privoxy # echo 'forward-socks5t / 127.0.0.1:9050 .' >> /etc/privoxy/config # sed -r '/RUN_DAEMONS/s/(" *)$/ privoxy\1/' -i /etc/rcS.conf # /etc/init.d/privoxy start
You can use Vidalia to start and configure tor, the proxy server is launched automatically when the SliTaz system boots. Once installed, you will find Vidalia in the Menu → Internet. To configure preferences via the proxy server with the following values: Proxy address: 127.0.0.1 Port: 8118 and the path to the configuration file: /home/USER/.config/torrc (changing USER by User name).
# tazpkg get-install vidalia # exit $ cp /etc/tor/torrc ~/.config
Use Bridges to get tor working if the above options are not working.
# echo ' UseBridges 1 UpdateBridgesFromAuthority 1 bridge 220.127.116.11:6085 ' >> ~/.config/torrc
Verification and Advice
For more added security; do not launch TOR via the 'root' user, Vidalia is perfect for this (or the command line). To check your current browser with TOR: https://check.torproject.org/
