is there some simple way to set up a local "proxy" that will catch requests to, say, localhost/www.example.com and forward them through the local tor socks proxy?
(to make up for firefox's apparent inability to set per-tab proxies...)
I suppose you'd have to rewrite the html links in the returned html pages too
bja
spamham: i heard about foxy proxy or something like it, people said it worked wonders, i just haven't got the time to try it out
Tas
the proxy autoconfiguration file can do that, too
all about pac files: http://www.returnproxy.com/
spamham
bja: right, could try that again... had some issues with getting tor-dns to work, but maybe with privoxy or polipo one won't need any special treatment for dns
(if firefox sends the hostname to the proxy rather than trying to resolve it itself)
anrxc
spamham: do you know newer firefox can send dns requests trough socks proxy?
spamham
anrxc: yes. But it's harder if you want to use foxy-proxy to only use tor for .onion urls :) seemed to work or fail at random ;)
(foxyproxy switches the proxy on or off depending on url)
__Lirezh
I've integrated dirservers1, is there another configuration I need to add ?
BarkerJr
is my tor relay tax deductible?
nickm
donated services generally aren't tax-deductible in the US, I think. but i am not a lawyer. :)
wseltzer
The IRS has a pamphlet on deductible expenses: #
#
err, that was supposed to be a paste of the URL
spamham_
maybe if you bought the server for the express purpose? but IANAL
nickm
if you _gave_ the tor project the server, probably.
but fwiw, if we knew a way for all server ops to claim a tax deduction, we'd tell people about ut. :)
__Lirezh
Hmm what is the trouble with eventdns.c ?
I forgot how I made that compileable
using mingw
hm
nm
nickm
it builds on mingw for us most days
andreij
is there any tor discussion board?
phobos
not yet
BarkerJr: we've been advised tor relays are not tax deductible under USA laws, however if you want to try for the deduction, they can say no
or maybe the IRS says yes and people can then donate their relay costs, but only if it's dedicated to just tor
andreij
my tor is not able to load OR descriptors, the hole day, i am from germany
phobos
what version of tor?
andreij
vidalia 0.1.15, also AdvTor
week ago it worked
"connection to a relay directory failed (no route to host)"
phobos
what is advtor?
andreij
some other tor client
phobos
we also updated tor directory authorities and new versions last week
that vidalia 0.1.15 is old
BarkerJr
maybe you just need to give out receipts to tor relays for the value of their donation?
I don't really care, though... I don't spend enough on tor to matter :)
andreij
my tor works after a new install..
phobos
BarkerJr: that's exactly what we can't do
we can say "thank you for running a relay from (start date) to (end date), you've helped provide online anonymity, privacy, blah, blah, blah..."
but the person doing the deducting has to value their donation, not us
because it's a conversation between the person and their tax authority
"i donated a tor server valued at $1 billion us dollars in 2009" irs> lol, try you paid $100/mo for 2 months. denied! welcome to auditland!
BarkerJr
:P
isn't my service priceless to the users? :P
phobos
to the users, yes
not to the irs
BarkerJr
hehe
Mudkipz
Hello?
BarkerJr
lo
r1eo, I just filed 1233 for corrupt bridge history
__Lirezh
is tor overloaded ? I keep getting "Directory busy, try again later"
BarkerJr
can you tell what directory it is?
__Lirezh
Jan 26 03:27:47.236 [info] connection_dir_request_failed(): Giving up on directory server at '195.22.10.229'; retrying
Jan 26 03:27:48.024 [info] connection_dir_request_failed(): Giving up on directory server at '128.31.0.34'; retrying
I also got: Jan 26 03:27:48.502 [debug] directory_get_from_dirserver(): Deferring serverdesc fetch: all authorities are in use.
My boot is stuck at 45%
i tried removing the data directory a few times, no help
BarkerJr
just to be sure, you are on 0.2.1.22 or 0.2.2.7-alpha, right?
__Lirezh
yes .22
I am getting a lot of those serverfetch errors
BarkerJr
I'm not seeing them
__Lirezh
Have any idea about possible causes?
BarkerJr
not from me, sorry
__Lirezh
Hmm I also see: Jan 26 03:25:20.839 [info] router_pick_trusteddirserver(): No trusted dirservers are reachable. Trying them all again.
This might be the real cause
I had the same error before, that's why I upgraded to latest 0.2.1.22
that's why it is stuck at 45% i guess
Crazy I keep getting Jan 26 03:53:26.748 [debug] directory_get_from_dirserver(): Deferring serverdesc fetch: all authorities are in use.
Still boot is locked to 45% because the servers deny me the descriptor download
andreij
can i see all the descripptor data tor is downloadloading with the standard client..
onion keys etc..
?
__Lirezh
Hey
is it possible FetchDirInfoEarly is flawed in the late releases ?
That might have caused my issues
6 hours of bug searching ;)

r1eo
number of running relays goes down.
Sebastian
__Lirezh: flawed in what way?
also, why do you set that option?
ln5: hey. It looks like the guy at Apple didn't tell the truth
ln5: compiling openssl 0.9.8l on OS X and statically linking Tor against it creates a working tor
ln5: also, no update on my bugreport with apple
cweiske
Hi. I am using tor 0.2.0.35 on my debian server and constantly get "Not enough good signatures on networkstatus consensus" in my log files. what can I do?
(3 good ones0
)
ln5
syn
Sebastian
ack
ln5
tnx
Sebastian: hey. so it's been verified that /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib
doesn't work with tor?
Sebastian
cweiske: hrm. weasel: any updates on the new package?
ln5
i would do it myself if only i could understand why that dyld creature doesn't honour DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.
weasel
Sebastian: which new package?
Sebastian
weasel: the new 0.2.0.35 package
weasel
it will be in the next stable point release.
Sebastian
ah ok
like my new glibc :?
hrm
which authority is down?
ln5: I think so.
cweiske
Sebastian, if you mean me: "Unable to load consensus directory downloaded from server '213.73.91.31:443'"

Sebastian
cweiske: hrm, that's dannenberg
andreij
how do i open a stream like in control-spec
tcp connect to op port?
Shaman
hello, world
what would be a fair number of file desc for 256kB/512kB of bw allocated to tor?
w/ 4096, it still continues to cry
Sebastian
Shaman: At least 10k
Shaman: but there's not really a good reason to limit it at all, so why not give it more
cweiske: hrm. A good solution would be to upgrade to 0.2.1.22
Shaman
Sebastian: I simply want to have a limit for sec purpose.
Sebastian
what kind of security?
cweiske
Sebastian, thanks - will try that
Sebastian
cweiske: That's a good idea anyways
Shaman
I don't want to have a process that can virtually break the system if it start to work bad (ie eat all the possible file descriptor for the whole system)
cweiske
Sebastian, that version is the latest stable in debian, the reason I have it
but I'll use the newer ones now
Sebastian
cweiske: I know. Debian doesn't like updating software ;)
Shaman: well sure, just set it to 20k. That should be sufficient.
Shaman
I just did that right now. Will see if it's better
Sebastian
uSuRa: ping
Shaman
I'm quite impressed by how fast new connections are comming, once the tor is started
Sebastian
ln5: So if your Apple guy can tell us why Tor with static openssl works and the one with dynamically loaded openssl doesn't, that'd be neat. Otherwise, he can claim whatever he want
ln5
Sebastian: Sure. I've just convinced my dyld to load /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib instead of the /opt/local/lib one from macports. How would I confirm that I have or have not the renegotiation problem?
Sebastian
start Tor
without a torrc
ln5
so i have, but do i have to actually push traffic through it to verify?
Sebastian
no
ln5
i'd like to read some debug output
Sebastian
Tor will warn if renegotiation fails
ln5

Jan 26 10:38:32.482 [notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working.

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 894736 Nov 21 04:02 /usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib
now, one can wonder whether that library is really the newest 0.9.8l.
i'll try to find out
andreij
does tor proxy have a config file on win?
ah k
ln5
hmm... I run 0.2.2.6-alpha
SwissTorExit
morning to everyone, it is some problems with Tor network ? i have only 280 relays founds and it work really bad
Sebastian
yes, there is a problem. We're working on the fix.
SwissTorExit
hi Sebastian, good morning my friend, oh ok, so it's not by me while the last git libevent have compile problem too but that other thing :P
thanks Sebastian and i will see about the news, good luck ;D
cweiske
is it normal that the log is full of "404 not found" info messages?
Sebastian
cweiske: not really. Paste one of them, please?
cweiske: we're currently experiencing a very unstable Tor network.
cweiske
http://paste2.org/p/632849
btw, I have tor 0.2.1.22-1 now
Sebastian
yes
hrm
wth
cweiske
but the connection seems to work now
Sebastian
it should
the log messages are there because of general network problems
sorry for your problems
cweiske
no problem
i'm used to problems :)
Sebastian
that's a little sad to hear
ln5
Sebastian: manage too bootstrap with v0.2.2.7-alpha (git-69c0147ea6725a63) too, using /usr/lib/libcrypto.0.9.8.dylib
Sebastian
ln5: did you see my pastebin?
ln5
could you get hold of ls -l and md5 of failing libcrypto.0.9.8.dylib?
yup
we have about the same stuff loaded, I'll comment with my output
in the paste
Sebastian
MD5 (/usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib) = c4d404ab688c502dfe0a0aefcebf3c5c
erm
you asked for the other file
ln5
no, libssl is fine
Sebastian
MD5 (/usr/lib/libcrypto.0.9.8.dylib) = 2a592d45bfdaa227cc2f3edd83285b9b
ln5
but my paste was bad
how do i tell the pastebin to behave?
Sebastian
hm?
ln5
MD5 (/usr/lib/libssl.0.9.8.dylib) = c4d404ab688c502dfe0a0aefcebf3c5c
we have the same library, weird
I commented on your pastebin but it got formatted badly
Sebastian
ah. no idea.
pretty weird, huh?
Sebastian
erm
yes.
cweiske
Sebastian, thanks for you help and goodbye
Sebastian
thanks for running a relay
ln5: we should probably document this in bug 1225... I have no idea what's going on.
ln5
I'll try to squeeze it in tonight. If you beat me to it, so be it. ;-)
