If your proxy cannot do CONNECT, you lose. Sorry. Most proxies actually do connect - else how would you visit gmail or anything else doing https - but they only do it for https on port 443. If your proxy does connect, set the HTTPProxy and HTTPSProxy config options in your torrc -- that will make tor make all requests through that proxy using the http ...

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 ...

It's exactly the same excepting that no CA will sign your CSR (it'll be a self-signed certificate) and it's mostly superfluous because .onion is already providing end-to-end authenticate encryption. Update to address comments and updated question: There is no difference between the approach over tor or a dangernet site, you'd setup something like: ...

Tor not just a not http proxy - it's a transparent proxy with host-mapping features and DNS + SOCKS backend. If you want it as a VPN, especially on Windows 10, you MUST use a separate box as a router, where you'll actually route all the traffic through Tor. I've made some research in Windows 10 case, and here's a conclusion : If you're using laptop, ...

Nowadays, normal clients always tunnel their directory requests over one-hop Tor connection by default. The TunnelDirConns configuration option specifies that behavior and it has defaulted to tunneling since about 2008 (svn revision 13935). Accordingly, if you are just a client and not a relay or bridge relay, setting HTTPSProxy should be all that's needed....

At the moment, if you have to use a HTTP proxy server and that proxy server doesn't support the CONNECT method then you are out of luck. There are plans to build a pluggable transport which carries TLS over HTTP, but there are a number of challenges, including: How to spread a single TLS connection over multiple HTTP connections so as to behave like a ...

Bridges and Pluggable transports are pretty much made for this. There are many to choose from. A very recent one called meek makes it look like you connect to Google or Amazon and in fact you connect to their servers, however you actually end up on a Google App Engine or Amazon EC2 server operated by the Tor project. More information about this specific ...

Tor is not a http proxy but it is a SOCKS proxy, so please put your options (127.0.0.1:9150) in the socks field. :)

Can that person be comfortable in assuming that their completely Anonymous when, using Tor or is there new steps or programs someone should use with Tor, or extra precautions they should take. I just cant honestly believe it can just be as simple as using a different browser, at least no stay that simple for long. No, it's not and the Tor Project explicitly ...

There are no unsolicited inbound connections except hidden services when you set some up. (Different Tor Hidden Services are automatically stream isolated.) Solicited (related) incoming connections are stream isolated by Tor. As I understand, answers for requests come in the same way through the Tor network they were sent. They don't take some random way ...

To answer your question first, Go to the internet option and then change the proxy from HTTP to socks, then your browser works. Same goes to the skype's proxy settings, you need to change it to socks. Games? I don't think there are proxy settings. Can it route the entire system? No, Socks don't work that way. Socks stick with the applications, not the ...

If you're looking for a handy/full featured tunnel for streaming all the Windows 10 traffic through TOR, I suggest proxifier which you can set TOR as a SOCKs5 proxy server with DNS resolvation through proxy option. And if you check the connection status through TOR, it will pass if everything is OK.

What about preventing the DNS resolution from happening by using the proxy IP instead of the proxy hostname in torrc?
