When I first connect to the network, any HTTP requests are redirected
to a login page, which used to say Cisco on it. That page has since
Is it possible the firewall is looking at the :443 connections and
somehow telling that it's Tor rather than HTTPS?
Well - the dump you posted shows that your connection is NATted - are
you using a VPN connection of some sort?
It's an open wireless network, and I connect to it and then have to
login using a web browser. There does seem to be a NAT.
I'm also seeing that the tcp handshake to the selected Tor router
works - but after that, you're sending off into space, and the
connection is eventually terminated (on your side).
I presume that you're using the latest bundle for OSX?
I've tested with the latest stable and alpha bundle (the "expert"
ones) as well as a compiled version from SVN (I've updated since
then, so I don't know which it was I tested).
