Re: Confused about Tor settings

Hash: RIPEMD160

i'm pretty sure someone has written some dns proxy that queries through
tor, i have a vague memory that it was only implemented in windows
however. i'm going to look into this because i think it'd be rather cool
to actually resolve all dns queries through tor, although sometimes that
may wind up with different ip addresses depending on the exit node doing
the query.
