:: I've recently started experimenting with the tor-browser bundle. I have successfully installed and used it on my XP administrator account but find it doesn't work on my limited-user accounts. Specifically, the Vidalia control panel status reads, "connecting to a relay directory failed(no route to host)". Is this due to the lack of administrator rights? Is there a workaround?
:TBB is designed to work without admin privileges. And by install, you
mean extract, as there is no installation procedure. If you "installed" it as an Admin and then tried to run it as a non-admin, you might run into trouble.
You're quite right, Andrew, I did extract it (see my reply to coderman). I ran the TB executable from my admin account first to ensure I could program my NIS2005 firewall to allow access to all required components.
