Anonymity with tor, polipo

Post by garby » 19. Jan 2011, 10:03

I needed anonymity (as a democracy worker) in salixos which could be possible with tor, polipo/privoxy combination. So I did the following (used libev instead of libevent because the former is lightweight and also required by my favorite wm, i3 ;-). Just copy the following and save as 'anonymizer.sh' and chmod +x anonymizer.sh.

Code: Select all

#!/bin/sh
slapt-src -i libev
ln -s /usr/lib64/libev.so.3.0.0 /usr/lib64/libevent.so
groupadd -g 220 tor
useradd -u 220 -g 220 -c "The Unknown" -d /dev/null -s /bin/false tor
slapt-src -i polipo tor
wget --no-check-certificate https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/build-scripts/config/polipo.conf -O /etc/polipo/config
service restart polipo
service restart tor
Now by proxying your applications with localhost:8118 will make you anonymous. Check with ipid.shat.net or check.torproject.org whether you are anonymized or not.

Enjoy!!!
