A friend of mine installed a Tor relay with an exit node in his server. It has an IP and a port, obviously, but we can't connect (or we don't know) to the node.

We think it has to be done with a proxy, but as I said, we don't know.

Could you help us, please?

  • What do you mean, connect to the node? Are you trying to use that as your Exit Node? – Andrew Lott Sep 15 '15 at 18:28

Specifying a particular exit node is not a wise solution, instead it is better to specify a country (better yet, exclude countries you don't want!).

You'll have to edit your torrc file: either ExitNodes or ExcludeExitNodes

Have a look at the Tor Manual.

ExitNodes node,node,…

A list of identity fingerprints, country codes, and address patterns of nodes to use as exit node---that is, a node that delivers traffic for you outside the Tor network. See the ExcludeNodes option for more information on how to specify nodes.

Note that if you list too few nodes here, or if you exclude too many exit nodes with ExcludeExitNodes, you can degrade functionality. For example, if none of the exits you list allows traffic on port 80 or 443, you won’t be able to browse the web.

Note also that not every circuit is used to deliver traffic outside of the Tor network. It is normal to see non-exit circuits (such as those used to connect to hidden services, those that do directory fetches, those used for relay reachability self-tests, and so on) that end at a non-exit node. To keep a node from being used entirely, see ExcludeNodes and StrictNodes.

The ExcludeNodes option overrides this option: any node listed in both ExitNodes and ExcludeNodes is treated as excluded.

and:

ExcludeExitNodes node,node,…

A list of identity fingerprints, country codes, and address patterns of nodes to never use when picking an exit node---that is, a node that delivers traffic for you outside the Tor network. Note that any node listed in ExcludeNodes is automatically considered to be part of this list too. See the ExcludeNodes option for more information on how to specify nodes. See also the caveats on the "ExitNodes" option below.

For example:

ExitNodes {us} #use exit nodes in the United States; you can also use IP addresses here, like 15.125.229.117
ExcludeNodes {ru},{ro},{pt},{ph},{pa} #do not use exit nodes from these countries

  1. Download Tor Browser Bundle and install it.
  2. Go to ..\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor
  3. You will find a file torrc. Edit this file with notepad.
  4. At the end add ExitNodes IP. E.g. Exitnodes 46.165.223.217
