I am working on tools for change identity of tor every 3 minutes. But it require a cookie path of tor. I follow this one https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/4881 but didn't find its yet.

Thank for support.

    Why changing identity every 3mins? it's too often and probably bad both for you and network... Tor does that for you every 10mins. see For how long does a circuit stay alive?

By default Tor will not require authentication from local users. Have you enabled cookie authentication in torrc? If you have, Tor will write the cookie in the file control_auth_cookie in the Tor data directory: http://archives.seul.org/or/talk/Jan-2009/msg00071.html
