Re: FTP with Tor
Thanks tildeone for all your help. Am currently exploring the tor_resolve
stuff you kindly put down. Would be so grateful if anyone can comment
further on these topics:
1) "the fact that an application speaks socks 4a doesn't mean the dns
leakage problem is not present." Oh. Can you perhaps explain the
significance of socks4a for me? Why is it so important to Tor if it is not
related to this DNS issue? Isn't the importance of Privoxy something to do
with it enabling Tor to be used as a Socks4a proxy as opposed to a Socks4 or
2) Is this valid?: if I input an IP address to the FTP client, instead of a
domain name, then there will be no DNS issue cause it will of course not
have to look up the corresponding IP address to the domain name - it already
has the IP address!
3) With FTP - is it best to use Tor as a 1) Socks4a proxy 2) Socks4 proxy or
3) Socks 5 proxy?
Thanks in advance. hope you guys all have a nice weekend.

Sorry, I can't (I'm really not that network guru at all, just starting

usage (in DOS promt, if you are on windows):
tor_resolve [-v] hostname [sockshost:socksproxy]
arguments in  are optional, -v means verbose output, without defining
sockshost:socksport tor_resovle defaults to localhost:9050.

I think it should be socks 4a (but again, I don't really know the
significance - guess there are people knowing much better on the list).
Hope that helps
