RE: I'm seeing someone else's localhost.localdomain

Hash: SHA1

 Following this thread, what comes to mind is:

This seems like a job for tor-resolve, but I have no idea how to set
it up in windoze, nor how to make that the default way to resolve

Is there anywhere to find the information on how to make this work
(either for dns to use tcp through tor, or use tor-resolve) on win32?
