Hi, I'm checking out how to connect to the internet anonymously. (In another forum, I'd been sued for that - to be a terrorist or paranoid, etc. - Well, I just think that my intent is legal, and I have my own reasons. - I think everyone should be free to decide on that. - Please, call me a moron
I've been using JAP
, respectively, anon-proxy
In the Firefox browser, I set up the proxy 127.0.0.1:4001.
I've been using ethereal
to check what's leaving the network card: "Encrypted request"s and "response"s in case of using JAP/anon-proxy. - Perfect, that's working.
- As JAP/anon-proxy ain't very fast and reliable, I checked out Tor
I've installed it, and, in Firefox, I set up the connection to use the 127.0.0.1:8118 proxy.
Now, when capturing my traffic using ethereal, I found all the original URLs I've visited in plain text.
- So I'm wondering what's this all about with Tor? - The proxy does work - nevertheless, my URLs are passed through, directly?!
