im running the expert tor.exe client (tor1 and tor2 at the same time) within a python script and selenium module. the 2 tor.exe clients are getting killed after every run to get a new ip. first runs are working, im getting 2 new ips every time, but after couple of minutes the tor.exe clients stuck at 95%. First i thought it is that im being blocked by Tor for too many requests but after reading thats not it.

i've restarted my PC and synched the windows time but still the same issue. using a bridge would work but thats too slow. after like 2 hours its working again.

but the tor browser is working! I think its something with my torrc file, do i need to add something? this is my torrc file

SocksPort 9152
ControlPort 9052
CookieAuthentication 1
DataDirectory C:\Users\admin\Desktop\all\expert\torexpert\Tor2

you have any idea why its not working?

[notice] Bootstrapped 95% (circuit_create): > Establishing a Tor circuit

this is the netstat for port 9152

  1. You can control tor via the control port and request a new identity.
  2. You can configure via the torrc. Values to check are:
    • NewCircuitPeriod
    • MaxCircuitDirtiness
    • NewCircuitPeriod

But in any way, new circuits not necessarily give you a new exit node, and so, not a new IP.

Also, rotating so often can make your more distinguishable and so, identifiable.

The defaults are there for a reason.
