Are you sure about this? Why not?

Confusion exists indeed. So much that no one else replies.

I don't understand that trouble with DNS. Can you give a *practical*
example, what you want to do?

For example: "I want to resolve .bit domains over Tor. On Windows XP.
What's the simplest method? Which method involves the least amount of tools?

What's wrong with Tor's DnsPort?

Tor can listen on specific interfaces. Examples:


will listen on only. Yes, but only on "one" port.

Redirecting traffic from a whole network interface to some other
ip/port, can only be done using firewall rules. Iptables on Linux and no
idea how to do it with Windows. Yes, that involves more software again.

Tor has no "create-a-virtual-interface" feature. Perhaps you could
create a virtual network interface, but yes, that again would involve
more software.

I think if you need to listen on port 1 - 65535 at once, you are doing
something wrong. Never saw anyone in need to do this.
