It's been a while since I played with tor, but I recall that the documentation said that you have to combine tor and privoxy (or the equivalent) in order to surf anonymously. On the other hand, Giles is using his own script run from the command line, rather than a web browser, so I assume that he won't write the script to send info that he wants to hide. It would probably be a good idea check the http requests that are sent externally and see what info is being passed with them. Then he can determine for himself if he needs anything more than tor. Just my uninformed opinion. :) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
