I made a simple server at my home hosted by tor. The server contains my personal files and i dont like paying services for hosting websites because hosting on tor is free and hidden. It doesn't matter if i'm not using tor to connect to my onion website because im the owner of it so... yeah. I tried any to search for socks support for net but i found nothing and also i dont like using 3rd party libraries and some have 30 day trial which sucks. BUT....... basically the only barrier i really have is that i cannot connect Socks proxy using NET framework. please help i need guidance... thank you

  • So you are trying to subvert the whole point of having Tor? – Chenmunka Sep 6 at 11:46

Is this an http, ftp, windows file server?

I take it that you are attempting to develop and application that can reach your server from inside and outside?

My suggestion:

Don't try to do everything from scratch. Install Apache and MySQL and then install NextCloud/OpenCloud. This will give you everything you need to access your files quickly at home like a NAS. It uses standard webDAV http/https requests.

You can also have apache work with Tor to create an onion service. When you are away from home use Tor Browser to access your files remotely. You can even set up the Nextcloud application to sync via Socks 5 though this might be very slow if you sync large files.
