Re: [tor-talk] ssh over tor
I'd also be interested to hear from anyone who took the time to research
this further. I for one arrived at the same conclusion as Lars at least in
regards to DNS leaking, and saw no way for anything to be leaked, really.
(Also, if netcat fails at some point during the ssh session, the pipe
breaks, and that's that, no leak problem.)
I've had a very similar line  in my shell's rc for a long time now. :)
but would be interesting to hear others' opinions, as I think quite a lot
of people may be using this way to do anon ssh.
 ssh -o "ProxyCommand nc -x 192.168.64.1:19234%h %p" -D 20234
(Tor binds to 192.168.64.1:19324; also dynamic-forward via port 20234 - a
kind of a chained socks proxy.)
