Double Tor Tunnel
Jun 29 05:13 [raw]

There is no feature that allows specification of longer circuit route length in torrc. https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en The circuit length is hard coded into Tor source code as: "#define DEFAULT_ROUTE_LEN 3." https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor.git/tree/src/or/or.h?h=release-0.3.4#n4848 In order to build longer circuits a user must download and modify the source code, compile the source, then build a package for the target distribution. This is an unwieldy process that the average user cannot do. Average users don't know how to download, install, and use compilers, nor do they know how to build linux packages. So your criticism is uninformed. There is no published setting in torrc that allows bypassing this. The double tunnel method is much simpler. ------------------------------------------------------ This is also retarded. You can just add more hops in Tor with the torrc config. ------------------------------------------------------ How to Double Tunnel Tor through Tor One may tunnel one instance of Tor through another instance to double the length of the Tor circuit. Connecting to Tor over tor adds extra difficulty to attacks on your Tor usage. Method #1: Android Connect the Android device to the Internet and download Orbot from the app store or f-droid. In Orbot settings, enable Tor socks and adjust the port number to your desired port. Enable Internet connection sharing on your android device or tether it to the computer, while ensuring the android device is connected to the Internet. On the computer, install and configure Tor to connect via a proxy. In the proxy configuration, enter the port number and IP address of your android device. This will vary depending on whether your computer is connected directly to the Android device or to a LAN or wifi hotspot shared with the Android device. After you enter the Tor socks port from the Android device, run Tor from your computer. The Tor instance on the computer will connect to Orbot on the Android device. Orbot is already connected to Tor. Now the computer will tunnel through the Orbot circuit and create another Tor circuit beginning at the exit node of the Orbot circuit. Now instead of five hops in the Tor tunnel you should have ten hops. This will slow down the connection a bit but if security is paramount this is tops. Method #2: Virtual Machine Run a virtual machine OS with an instance of Tor running. Outside the VM on another computer, or in another VM on the same computer, run another instance of Tor. Enable Tor socks on one VM, and configure the other VM to connect to the Torsocks of the other VM, completing a double Tor tunnel. = zaeon =
