I'm using the windows installation of the Tor browser bundle. I would like to share that connection with another interface on that computer so that the entire connection with that network is piped through the Tor connection. Since we lost Vidalia, it is confusing how to proceed with this. Could somebody guide me how to do this?
The more hard way: install PRIVOXY and configure it to work as a 'transparent proxy' then let other machines on your LAN point the PRIVOXY ADDR.
Simply way: let the program you use on other machines on the LAN and if the program permit proxy configuration, point to machine running tor server as SOCK5 port 9150, if you have not changed it on TOR server configuration. I.E if your tor machine is 10.0.0.1 then let the browser, on an hypothetical 10.0.0.10, set proxy to 10.0.0.1:9150 using SOCK5 mode.
That's it !
Add a new SOCKSPort line to your
torrc file, located inside the Tor Browser folder in the sub-folder
\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\torrc, setting it to be something like:
Ensure you've allowed traffic in to this port in any packet-filter/"firewall" on the operating system, then configure other applications on other systems on the network to use to whatever your computers LAN IP address is on port 9250 as their SOCKS5 or SOCK4a proxy.
Note that this will mean traffic traverses the local network before receiving any of Tor's protection (e.g. the LAN sees what an exit would see and plaintext
.onion traffic) and as such should be avoided. I'd strongly recommend against this, run tor locally where possible. LAN networks, especially those hosted using consumer routers, should be considered untrusted/untrustworthy operating environments.
