RE: [Fwd: Re: Tor and https]

My situation now stands as:

1) I can get Plesk working with Tor - it was not working before because I had javascript turned off!! Have now turned it on - lose a bit of security but if that is what it takes to get it to work.

2) I cannot get Plesk working with Tor AND privoxy. Privoxy seems to cause problems. Can anyone explain why? Do I need privoxy in this instance as I am feeding an IP address and not a domain name:

3) Have not been using Plesk for long time frame so not experienced problems cause of changing IP yet - will let you know how it goes. You said you had a problem with this - did you find anyway round it?

sorry, privoxy probably has nothing to do with it, actually, as it can't
see any of the source with https sites, afaik, because it sits between
the browser and the destination.

but i meant what i said about the ip-changing issue (i had a problem
with plesk, before, too)

you probably can access port 8443 fine as there are at least a few
servers allowing exit traffic from there.  my guess is that privoxy may
be causing a problem with javascript in addition to the fact that your
ip keeps changing when using tor (so plesk will keep logging you out
every time your ip changes). -- you can get privoxy to trust your plesk
site's ip/hostname, but you will still have plesk problems when using
tor because of your apparent ip changing.

(i also found bugs when using firefox "deer park" with plesk, so if you
are using that [for the no-dns leakage abilities] then that will be an
issue when trying to do some things in plesk.)
