Re: Pidgin with TOR

2009/12/31 emigrant <fromwindowstolinux@xxxxxxxxx>
hi all,
i am using the pidgin with ubuntu. and i installed TOR as well.
i want to set up TOR to one of the yahoo accounts in pidgin.
so i went to proxy settings and changed the gnome proxy setttings into
socks5 and host and port 9050.
but each time i restart pidgin the yahoo account wont' start. i think
its may be due to yahoo email is opened?

how can i solve the problem?

thank you very much.

Port 9050 is your web proxy (probably Polipo). Pidgin wants to use a Socks proxy, so you should set the port to 8118, which is where Tor itself is listening.
