tor transproxy tsocks ....
 
I had enough of privoxy still stopping my browsing for some who knows prevention reason.So i came across the idea of using something more transparent,ok,i have tryied both transproxy and tsocks but i made something wrong so even apt-get stopped working looking for a proxy that i haven't configured the right way.Did anyone one ever used the tor transproxy or tor tsocks,i have a debian gateway sarge 3.1,and i would like to know something more this .Well if you care of privacy the tor tsocks thing looks top!!:Pengy:

So, what did you try? Did you really exported LD_PRELOAD before running? Did you set up DNS (it is udp, so it isn't tsocks'ed)?

If I'm correct, transproxy simply intercepts http requests and automatically, and tranparently, redirects these requests to a proxy.

So, you must still have an http proxy running (privoxy or squid), that transproxy redirects requests to.

So your proxy must be configured for tor, not transproxy.

cheers,

And how do i configure transproxy to use another proxy?When i launch transproxy and his related iptables browser connections get proxied but apt-get fails and anyway it's not using tor ,how do i configure the tsocks.conf? i got some hints from the tor website but they refer to a socks.conf that seems not use the same transproxy sintax.

I'm using this in the tsocks.conf:
local = 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0
local = 0.0.0.0/0
path {
reaches = 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
reaches = 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
server_type = 5
server = 127.0.0.1
server_port = 9050
}
server = 127.0.0.1
server_type = 5
server_port = 9050
I've put the variable LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libtsocks.so in the /etc/init.d/transproxy,correct ???
i wouldn't avoid to type anytime the export LD_PRELOAD.I'm sure there's not right att all.I have also squid running to involve in this .......... help !

It was just there !I mean the /usr/share/doc dir ,i know of this dir but i never think of it in the first place .... ok ! There i found a sample tsocks.conf plus examples.Anonymity and privacy in internet is important it's such a powerfull weapon ...
