On Ubuntu (running Tor) I set a system wide proxy from Settings > Network > Network Proxy as below:
Socket Host: 127.0.0.1 9050
Tried some apps like web browsers and they indicated a changed IP.
aria2c (similar to
wget) within the terminal but got this warning, although the app continued downloading:
$ aria2c http://.../..linux.tgz Caught Error while parsing environment variable 'all_proxy' Exception: [AbstractOptionHandler.cc:69] errorCode=28 We encountered a problem while processing the option '--all-proxy'. -> [OptionHandlerImpl.cc:508] errorCode=1 unrecognized proxy format
I wonder If it used Tor for communication or just connected directly without Tor? How could I check the IP of an app in the same situation (terminal app) while it reached a third-party site?
