Warning: be extremely careful about sending traffic through tor when not using the tor browser. Any unencrypted traffic will be seen by a potentially malicious exit node. Using any other browser besides tor browser to browse the internet is highly discouraged and will likely not provide any anonymity because your browser will give up your real ip address or ...

There are few available Tor2web network gateways: *.tor2web.org, *.tor2web.fi (managed by Ahmia - Onion Search Engine), *.tor2web.blutmagie.de (managed by O.Selke with no block), *.onion.sh (managed by my unknown friend: “hey anon!”).

Some people like http://onion.direct . However I am a fan of onion.link. I do know at least in terms of size of GOOG index, the results come out to: onion.direct | 21k onion.cab | 232k onion.link | 1060k Both onion.link as well as onion.cab do caching. AFAIK the other various t2w gateways do not.

Also to mention onion.cab which is 5 times faster than browsing via the tor-client, because of its static-files-caching.

Unfortunately, neither method is completely foolproof. With SOCKS, the application may implement socks proxy support in a way that leaks DNS requests; you need to verify that the program delegates DNS lookups to the proxy (i.e. Tor), rather than handling its own DNS requests. With a HTTP proxy, the some proxies may insert headers that could be used to ...

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: ...

Authentication is easy and set in your torrc. See this tutorial.

You can use tor-gateways.de where you can use one of the following syntaxes: https://.s1.tor-gateways.de/ https://*.s1.tor-gateways.de https://.s2.tor-gateways.de/ https://*.s2.tor-gateways.de https://.s3.tor-gateways.de/ https://*.s3.tor-gateways.de https://.s4.tor-gateways.de/ https://*.s4.tor-gateways.de https://.s5.tor-gateways.de/ https://*.s5.tor-...

Internet traffic (HTTP) is transmitted via port 80. Tor and Apache (or another web server) do not share ports well, because of problems with intercepting each others traffic, etc. You can either change the port of your web server, which I don't recommend, or change the port of Tor.

[My answer assumes you're trying to use Chrome as a replacement for the TBB, to the same anonymous ends.] To cut a long story short: don't use Chrome. Even if you get it "working", your privacy won't be as protected as it is when using the Tor Browser Bundle and the modified version of Firefox contained therein. For more details on why not to use Chrome, ...

First you configured the wrong port. Tor Browser listens on 9150 tor uses 9050 (get used to the way I spelled the 2 with the capital and the lowercase because that is how you tell the difference in a lot of documentation)

Use Polipo as a HTTP/HTTPS proxy : official website and GitHub sources. Not all apps are good with SOCKS proxies


2

Yes, you can use a web-based proxy to avoid being blocked when a website notices your tor exit node IP address. I tested this particular proxy with two different websites that block tor traffic, and it worked fine. Because you don't mess with any Tor Browser settings you are getting the requested Tor -> Proxy -> Clearnet https://hide.me/en/proxy One thing ...

This is pretty complicated to do, but it is possible. Assuming that the VPN you are connected to only uses TCP then this could work, though not easily. You could do this with much less complication using a few socks5 proxies. You could use a standard proxy to contact a bridge. Then, you would have to send a new packets to your other proxy. The problem ...

I also tried google search console and added the tag into first page of my onion site and also added the proxified site (MyWebsite.onion.to or MyWebsite.onion.ws) inot google but google can't detedct it. It's not that Google can't detect it, it's that they don't try. You can't even find facebook's .onion service there. Why? Because their search spiders are ...

There are a few approaches you can take: Use Tor DNSEL or ExitList to detect known Tor exits and redirect them if they are coming from a known Tor exit. Load embed a <script> tag with the source being the .onion, with javascript check if the hostname is the .onion address and if it isn't then redirect the user to it. Without javascript, use .css ...

There is nothing inherently bad about using a proxy after Tor, if you're ok with pseudonymity rather than anonymity (you're the Tor user that always uses hidemyass). hidemyass is in this instance not that different from a random cdn that also sees a huge amount of your traffic. Of course, they could link your pseudonymous profile to your actual identity if ...

Have you tried with SOCKS 4a on Polipo config ? From Tor FAQ, How do I access hidden services? : Some applications, such as the browsers Mozilla Firefox and Apple's Safari, support sending DNS queries to Tor's SOCKS 5 proxy. Most web browsers don't support SOCKS 4a very well, though. The workaround is to point your web browser at an HTTP proxy, and tell ...

I would recommend using SOCKS directly for performance reasons. Also, that might be one less software component which traffic patterns can be fingerprinted.
