How to install Tor and Privoxy?

5 posts in this topic

I'm new to Linux (I have FC 4), and I want someone to tell me, how to install Tor and Privoxy, and how to configure them, please. I'm totally new to these tools, and the Tor FAQ isn't very helpfull.

I would suggest hopping on the tor support channel

irc://irc.oftc.net/tor

But, and just some helpful advice, I would also try reading the docs again. I also wouldn't mention to them how you found it not helpful, seeing as it is one of the most helpful guides I have ever seen. ;)

You're just getting frustrated, it's alright bro. Just give it another read (yes, all of it) and try again.

A walk through on installing tor is way beyond the scope of a forum like this. I have great news though! Here's one.

EDIT: Shit, teach me to read better someone...please. :blush:

That is a windows walkthrough. Oops :) I'll leave it though, some one may see it some other time.

Here ya go:

The FAQ is helpful but not for installation. Look to the wiki for good info on how to install and properly configure everything.

All of this is very much unstated because you know, you should always RTFM.

OK, I'll Read The Friendly Manual one more time... Hope, I'll understand it. I'll tell ya, if everything is working. Thx for help!

The "Friendly Manual" is the one for network administration. You need the "Fine Manual" :).

Seriously, good luck and try their irc channel. If you have read the docs and obviously tried yourself, they likely will do anything they can to help you. Links, assist the install etc...

Of course, try again here if you want. It's just that it's a little complex and cant be boiled down to "here's how to do it in three paragraphs".

Good luck bro.
