How do I control the things that Vidalia did?(bridges, start and stop tor)
Starting the TorBrowser starts (launches) Tor and closing the TorBrowser closes (exits) Tor.
All traffic from the TorBrowser is supposed to go through Tor.
Upon first launch of the extracted bundle you have two choices, either you connect to the Tor network directly or you change ...
From the Tor Blog's release post:
Vidalia is still available for download as Bridge/Relay/Exit bundles ...
With Atlas, you are seeing consensus information from the Tor network, as retrieved via Onionoo. It is based on reports to and measurements by Tor network authority servers. It is a periodic report, and does not necessarily reflect the instantaneous state of your relay (recent changes you've made will take a while to show). This is the kind of information ...
You can download a standalone version of Vidalia if you are on Linux or Windows.
For Windows the extension is .exe and for Linux it is .tar.gz for Vidalia. .asc is the signature file to check the integrity of the standalone Vidalia bundle.
Then you have to extract the Vidalia bundle to some folder you can write to. It is not recommended to use the folder ...
Vidalia isn't included anymore in the Tor Browser Bundle.
But you don't really need Vidalia for this workaround.
As I could see in the HowTo everything you have to do is edit the torrc.
So that you are using Tor on Windows 7 the torrc lies under:
Just open it in notepad or something similar and add the following line:
Vidalia is just an interface to control the separate Tor client. In the Tor Browser Bundle that functionality will be moved into TorButton - which is found in the Tor Browser.
As far as Tails is concerned, Vidalia has very little to do with the torification of the whole system. It actually uses some iptables rules to force all network traffic through Tor - ...
Vidalia is no longer officially supported. I believe that any remaining references to Vidalia are accidental or historical. If you want to run a relay on Windows, just download the latest tor browser bundle. The bundle includes the latest stable version of tor. Edit your torrc (local inside the downloaded bundle directory) as you normally would to set ...
Vidalia has been discontinued for a long time now because it has not been maintained to keep up with changes in tor. At present there is no officially recommended alternative, though I have heard some rumors about it being revived.
To answer "Is there any way to use it?" Yes of course it is possible, but you should not use it. It is discontinued for a ...
The TBB closing all tabs, clearing all cookies, etc. when you ask for a new identity is a feature. The TBB itself does not support getting a new circuit just because you want one -- that's not one of its goals.
The Tor Browser Bundle should not need any configuration to work with a standard computer. It looks like either something has gone wrong with your installation or there is a bug. If you post further information on what you installed, how, and the error message you saw, we can provide more help.
If all you want to do is see the bootstrapping process the easiest way would be to simply run start-tor-browser from the command line (Windows, Linux, or anything else; the example below is from a Linux system) and watch the output.
sam@stellata tor-browser_en-US $ ./start-tor-browser
Launching Tor Browser Bundle for Linux in /home/...
This bug has been confirmed. Some workarounds have been communicated, but no final solution / bugfix.
See launchpad: Bug #680192 “Vidalia was unable to start Tor. Check your setting...” and try to disable the usr.bin.vidalia AppArmor profile.
Hope this helps!
Vidalia may be running in minimized format. Find the minimized Vidalia icon and maximize it, or take it out of the minimized format by any means available to you. There should not be anything wrong with Vidalia at this point in time as far as I know. Please feel free to correct me or append this answer if more accurate information is available.
Checkout the source and do whatever modification you want. It's free (as in freedom) and open source.
But... Vidalia is dead and you shouldn't be using it and probably don't want be wasting time on that, unless you really wanna revamp and maintain the new version.
Stick with the Tor Browser.
SilverTunnel-NG is able to provide access to the Tor Network on a Socket level.
You can checkout the Sample code here
The easiest way is to use maven and include the following dependency into your pom.xml:
Goto Tools -> Preferences and set show setting to all.
Goto Input/Codecs -> Socks Proxy.
Type in your proxy address: 127.0.0.1:9050
After that, you should be able to access any .onion links using VLC Player.
It is hard to tell what is going on. You might explicitly check whether 10060 is really reachable via a tool of your choice. There are also web services to do so.
In case your Tor server is indeed reachable you might just leave it running for a while. Sometimes it just takes a bit.
Should your finding be that it is not reachable there might be other causes,...
STOP. Do not use vidalia. It is no longer maintained or supported by TorProject and have been deprecated for a long time. Using vidalia poses unknown risks to you and if you are serious about preserving your anonymity, you should not use vidalia. Current versions of the Tor Browser Bundle show you circuit information just like vidalia did.
It is already answered here and it worked for me.
How it works:
vidalia needs permission or access to something that apparmor doesn't allow.
Here a site which explain the CMD: cyberciti.biz/faq/ubuntu-linux-howto-disable-apparmor-commands before running your workaround ...
The operator of the directory authority gabelmoo recently moved the server to a new IP address. According to bug report #13199 he screwed up the configuration. However this is fixed now and the warning in your log should disappear.
Vidalia is not part anymore of the standard Tor Browser Bundle. It will be completely discontinued soon.
Besides, the differences between these Bundles you name are their default configurations, since they are tailored to suit a user who wants to run specifically a bridge, a relay and an exit node.
This message is for informational use. Just check if the determined address is the address you are using at the moment. If it is then your relay is working as intended. If it is not try to state the right ip address manually in the vidalia options.
This most likely means that your university's network are blocking vanilla Tor. To circumvent this, use meek-amazon pluggable transport which works by making your Tor traffic look like you're trying to access Amazon's CDN services, or use obfs4, or snowflake (to be available soon).
