Re: Using tor in http proxied enviroment


Thanks for the reply, I didn't noticed that comment :)

I've configured tor with the Proxy directives to specify my proxy
server, username and password but I'm having problems.

5 on port 1863) is giving Tor only an IP address. Applications that do DNS resol

 socat) instead.

ed]:1863. Giving up.

I have another proxy authenticator configured and working for our
proxy and it works. I noticed that I had to specify our MS network
DOMAIN name to get it working. I guess tor can't communicate with our
proxy due to this.

I tried to set up tor to communicate with this proxy authenticator by
specifing the proxyhost to localhost:8888 (port listenet of the proxy
authenticator) but it doesn't work as well.

Any ideias?
