I am in an university that allows students to access internet only during 5pm to 2am. But the great thing is that if you use Tor and do not disconnect, you will still have internet connectivity after 2am for as long as your Tor remain connected. So, what I do is that I connect to Tor at night when the internet is working and keep my laptop on all night just to keep my internet working for the morning.
Now I am looking for a better ways to do this in which I don't have to keep my laptop on for the whole night just to make sure I don't lose Tor connectivity. I thought about hibernating my computer keeping Tor connected and expected to be connected to Tor in the morning but that didn't worked. But I observed that this trick works for short period of time say 3,5 minutes. Keeping it hibernated for long, it loses Tor connectivity and I am left with no internet in the morning.
I am desperately looking for a solution to this problem. I need internet to be productive. I am a computer science student but believe it or not the university administration doesn't provide internet all the time because of complaints from other student's parents.
Anyway, that's another story. So, if anyone could help me with this issue I would be very grateful. All I want is some way through which I can keep my Tor connection maintained even after powering off my machine so after I switch it on after long time I still have the connection to Tor established.
Technical Details: In order for me to connect to the internet I have to configure my browser to use the HTTPS proxy on 172.16.12.2:3128. The internet doesn't works otherwise. The same goes for Tor. In order to connect to Tor I need to configure it to use it with these proxy settings, otherwise it doesn't works.
Please help! I have come a long way for this.
