TOR hideously slow
just having installed TOR I am very happy about the anonymizing capabilities. Unfortunately, everything I do is unbearably slow - setting up a connection takes up to 5 seconds, requesting data another 5, and then there is the max speed of about 5 KBps, averaging at about 500bps. IMHO a little too slow even for a small, privately run network...
Any tweaks that could be made? Do I need to forward any connections through my router? And why does it take so long to connect?
Setup is a single PC behind a router/firewall/modem at a 4000Kbit ADSL line, running Debian Unstable @ 2.6.22-3-686 and Tor v0.1.2.19 through privoxy 3.0.8.
Thanks in advance!
