I am running the command-line tor client on OS X 10.10 and I have a short script that routes all my WiFi network connections through the SOCKS proxy where tor is listening (127.0.0.1:9050)
INTERFACE=Wi-Fi sudo networksetup -setsocksfirewallproxy $INTERFACE 127.0.0.1 9050 off sudo networksetup -setsocksfirewallproxystate $INTERFACE on tor -f ~/bridge.single sudo networksetup -setsocksfirewallproxystate $INTERFACE off
bridge.single is a very basic torr config file that specifies a bridge relay to connect to and the Socks and Control ports for the tor client.
When I run this all my browser traffic goes through tor - e.g., Chrome - which I verify by going to check.torproject.org.
But, I am using a separate desktop app that also makes an internet connection and the tor client spits out the error
[warn] Rejecting SOCKS request for anonymous connection to private address [scrubbed]
and my other application doesn't work.
Does anyone know how I can fix this? I tried changing the tor Socks port to 9052 but it didn't help and playing with some of the
ExitRelay configuration parameters here but it didn't help.
Why would Chrome's requests and responses have no problem connecting but this other application gets blocked by the tor client?
I don't have access to any "network" settings on this other application but I didn't do anything special on Chrome - I just route my WiFi traffic through tor.
Various questions here didn't help.
Update: I tried the following: connect a second computer to ethernet and run the tor client there (and route all its ethernet traffic through tor). Then I shared this second computers connection over AirPort and connected my computer to it. The second computer has a tor IP through its browser but my computer STILL shows local IP while browsing through second computers connection!!!
