Does anyone know how to start tor.exe and obsf4proxy.exe on WIN32 platform without having to launch Tor browser?

For instance in order to use a 3389 client to access the 3389 server by tor, I must first start the Tor browser, and in this way tor.exe and obsf4proxy will run in background.

  • In Windows you can run executables from the cmd prompt by typing the name (and path) of the executable. See here for more details. Sep 7, 2015 at 8:44

    yes, I know how to run an executable from the cmd prompt, but what i don't know is that i have no idea about the needed input parameters or file for obsf4proxy and obsfproxy to start from cmd line. Anyone can help me?

In general the usage for obfsproxy looks like:

obfsproxy [obfsproxy_args] protocol_name [protocol_args] protocol_options protocol_name

So, as an example:

obfsproxy obfs2 socks 127.0.0.1:5050

Other options for protocol_name are: managed, dummy, b64, obfs2 or obfs3

You can run obfsproxy by specifying something like:

ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec Path\To\obfs4proxy 

in the torrc file

  • Hi, Ron, thanks a lot. I can start obfsproxy now without Tor browser, but I still have a problem, that is in my Win7 program manger, there is a obfs4proxy.exe running when I start Tor browser, what is it? does it has any relation to obfsproxy.exe? As a matter of fact, I just want to run both tor and obfsproxy without Tor browser, how can I make it?

  • @Mike Yes, if you run TBB, it runs obfsproxy.exe in the background. If you select any other obfsproxys while setting up bridges in TBB (for eg: obfs4) it will run obfs4proxy.exe in the background. You can run obfsproxy by specifying something like ClientTransportPlugin obfs4 exec Path\To\obfs4proxy in the torrc file.
