Re: [tor-talk] torsocks is broken and unmaintained

I don't agree. torsocks is still useful to prevent identity correlation

Also, I don't want all of my applications using Tor -- just some of
them. Using Tails or TransPort wouldn't allow me to do this.

Some people do run multiple Tor's, jails, packet
filters, and apps. Largely to get around current
Tor limitations. Those people don't have this
singularity problem/position that you assume.
Torsocks is not required in that instance.

There has to be a better way to simply "make an ssh connection over ToR".

I don't want to run all of tails just to make a single ssh connection (2 minutes to properly fire up vmware, massive cpu use, laptop gets hot, fans running, everything else comes to a crawl).

I don't want to run a full-blown tor relay installation with all the bells and whistles and then maintain that full blown environment, watch advisories, run periodic tests, test for dns leakage, blah blah.

I want this:

cd /usr/ports/net/torssh
make install
torssh user@xxxxxxxx

Am I the only person that wants/needs this ?

I understand that you can't go down the road of "make a custom tor app for everry possible client app that people want to run", but come on ... ssh ? If there was just a single app to do this for, it would be that, right ?
