As others have said, this is something you shouldn't do. However, for the purpose of actually answering the second part of your question, you can do it fairly easily. In your Torrent client's configuration screen, look for a section called "proxy" or "network connection" etc. and set it up like the following example (using Deluge here): The important part ...

If you want to do this you should really try I2P. It comes with Bittorrent built in and I2P has many similarities with Tor. https://geti2p.net/

Being ignorant about whenever the question is about Tor itself or Tor Browser Bundle, by answering both versions. Tor Tor itself does not store any application level data, like browsing history. TorBrowser It shouldn't unless you configure it to do so. Quoting from the Design Document of the TorBrowser. Here is what's one of the goals of TorBrowser. The ...

I'm the maintainer of HTTPS Everywhere, which includes SSL Observatory (off by default though). I'm not sure where the other commenter got the idea that we're sending anything to Google; we don't. When you enable SSL Observatory, we POST a copy of the certificate chain you saw to an EFF server, along with the time, server domain, and server IP address. We ...

If you use your ISP's default DNS servers then it's practically guaranteed that they'll know you've been on the Tor website. If you make a connection to the Tor website that just happens to download the exact same amount of data as the Tor Browser Bundle then it's possible for them to tie the two together. If you're in a region where they're likely to care ...

In regard to the server requirements, there are a few important differences between a hidden FTP service and a regular FTP service. Also, you should check your ftp server software to make sure it doesn't leak your IP address. Force the client to use passive mode, not active/port mode. In passive mode the client initiates both the control and the data ...

When running an exit node, it is highly recommended to make it as clear as possible that it is an exit node. This helps the operator deal with DMCA notifications and abuse reports and the like. Further more, it is impossible for any relay, exit or non-exit, to hide the fact that they are a relay. The list of all relays and their flags is publicly available....

No, the HS directory is accessed via Tor. See: https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/rend-spec.txt#n549 The nodes running HS directories do form a distributed hash table, though it's not decentralized the same way that Freenet is, since all of the HS directory nodes are listed in the Tor consensus. So the client identifies which HSDir node is ...

Interesting discussion points thus far. Use VMs as discussed. I prefer VMware because of the networking, cloning, console access, replication, etc. No need for an OSS hypervisor discussion. These VMs need to be online, replicating, and failing over with zero issues and for use by any person who is involved in the enterprise. Your VMs are on ...

Actually you need to run Tor as a router, only then you'll never leak a DNS info, but there's also a trick with persistent cookies: if you've visited some sites from your PC before going through Tor or logged into your impersonated profile - it can be used in metadata processing to deanonymize you even if you're behind a Tor router.

Note that there are two dimensions to this question: What is technically possible for your ISP and what is legally possible. In many jurisdictions, it is illegal for ISPs to spy on their customers and log their actions even though technically they may be in a position to do so. This interactive graphic produced by the EFF provides an overview of what is ...

You won't necessarily be identified as a Tor user if you donate by credit card, only as a Tor supporter: Some people recognize the Tor project as a valuable organization and choose to support it financially, even though they don't use Tor themselves. One option you have is to donate to an organization which supports Tor. That way, if you use a credit card ...

As highlighted on the Tor Project's homepage, Tor's objective is: Anonymity Online. Protect your privacy. Defend yourself against network surveillance and traffic analysis. To that end there are many developers, journalists, hackers, cryptographers, activists, government agents and more constantly evaluating Tor's effectiveness from both theoretical and ...

The short answer is no. Basically, Tor is susceptible to timing correlation attacks, where someone who is observing the connection going from your client (OP) to the Tor network and also the connection from the Tor network to your destination can tell with fairly high certainty that they are the same connection. Note that you would need to correlate data ...

I assume you would like to hide the Tor usage from your ISP and/or people in charge of internet censorship where you live and use internet. If thats the case you have some options. Option 1. You may use bridges, they will hide your Tor usage to some extend. However, if authorities really focus on you they eventually will find out you are using Tor. Option ...

Well thats true, but the Window Size is not the only thing which can be tracked and will be tracked. The Windows size alone will not identify you. But tracking nowadays is not only done by cookies and all the information is cross-referenced and matched. So with all Informations (from a normal browser) about your OS, Windowsill JS_Engine, Flashversion, ...

Error 403 and CAPTCHA are appearing because the exit node you're using is not dedicated to you only: Many people are using it, including to access Google and other services. It seems - on a website server's side - that one single IP address (the exit node) generates too many requests per time and a different requests/user sessions, so it can interpret it as ...

Sending Torrent traffic over Tor is a bad idea for three main reasons: It doesn't make you anonymous. Torrent protocol wasn't designed with anonymity in mind and there are a million ways you're going to leak your actual IP address. Tor is a TCP only network. While this doesn't give you the anonymity you wanted, it will hurt the network for other users. (See ...

A hidden service does not necessarily have to run (listen) on the same host as the Tor relay that serves it. If the HS does run on the same host as the relay, then the traffic between Tor and the HS does not have to hit the LAN. If the HS then only accepts connections from localhost, the only 2 ways to connect to it are via Tor (.onion address) or directly ...

This is expected behavior in the TBB; it clears the cookies when you close the window (which is how most sites will store authentication tokens). Not only is this expected behavior, it's desirable. If an older version of the TBB did not do this, it was a security flaw because cookies could then be used to correlate your old and new identity in the Tor ...

Reliably denying the use of Tor is not possible. You could use bridges, but if someone sees traffic from your host to some destination and he thinks it is a bridge he just can connect to it and use it as bridge and therefore know that you use Tor. Obfuscated bridges (obfsproxy bridges or flash proxy) might work better, but there are still ways to discover ...

Wikipedia says: The RDP protocol in its default configuration is vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack. Administrators can enable transport layer encryption to mitigate this risk. RDS over TLS is somewhat equivalent to https. So if you trust Tor with https traffic you can probably also trust it with RDS over TLS. If you're dealing with proprietary ...

If you use Tails, then if they've installed software, it won't run while you use Tails. If you download Tails using a different computer, they won't know you downloaded it at all. You can also use a live OS like Ubuntu and keep the Tor Browser Bundle on a USB disk. As long as you avoid the OS that the tracking program is installed on, you're okay. As for ...

There is no long term credible way to deny the ISP provider from figuring out you are using Tor. You may use bridges or pluggable transport bridges to temporarily deny ISP from knowing that you are using Tor, but if any credible investigation arises regarding this matter, your ISP and bunch of other people would know that you were using Tor.

Making a movie available via BitTorrent is fine. But using Tor, either for seeding or recommended for downloading, is unwise. It's hard to properly configure torrent clients to use Tor without leaking, so recommending that people download via Tor would put them at risk. And even if torrent clients are properly configured, they would be stealing bandwidth ...
