I try to create a middlebox to redirect tor trafic but i have a problem. Tor doesn't create dns port 5353 as i configured in /etc/tor/torrc

AutomapHostsOnResolve 1
TransPort 9040 IsolateClientAddr IsolateClientProtocol IsolateDestAddr IsolateDestPort
DNSPort 5353

See my netstat :

root@debian:~/Documents# netstat -plnt
Connexions Internet actives (seulement serveurs)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Adresse locale          Adresse distante        Etat        PID/Program name

tcp        0      0*               LISTEN      668/tor             
tcp        0      0    *               LISTEN      580/sshd

Yes, it does.

Your netstat command is looking for listening TCP ports explicitly: netstat -plnt

DNS will be UDP, not TCP.
