Under WIN7 platform, when I start tor browser, there is a job running in taskmanager named `obfs4proxy.exe.

How can i start it through command-line since I don't need tor browser?

By the way, I can run tor.exe from command-line, so now I need obfsproxy.exe to run, but when I run it in cmd line, it always says:

obfs4proxy - must be run as a managed transport.

Anyone can help me?

  • I have solved this problem. under win7, absolute path must be used for obfs4proxy plugin in file of torrc-default. – Mike Sep 9 '15 at 3:36

I have solved this problem. Under Windows 7, the absolute path must be used for the obfs4proxy configuration in torrc-default; the relative path for obfs4proxy plugin doesn't work!

## obfs4proxy configuration
ClientTransportPlugin obfs2,obfs3,obfs4,scramblesuit exec E:\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Tor\PluggableTransports\obfs4proxy
