Re: [tor-talk] How to choose to get connected to a specific relay?


For the specific case you mentioned, find your torrc file and add these two 

ExitNodes {us}
StrictExitNodes 1

The first line tells Tor to prefer exit relays in the United States. The second 
line tells Tor to strictly enforce that preference.

Then stop Tor and start it again. To go back to normal usage, remove those two 
lines from your torrc and stop, then start Tor again.

A quick way to do it is to type http://abcd.com.<fingerprint>.exit into your 
browser's address bar when <fingerprint> is the fingerprint of a Tor exit relay 
in the United States. Another way is to visit a web proxy server set up to get 
around self-censorship and use that to access the website you want.
