proxychains other programs


2 years ago
I have configured the proxychains through tor network, type proxychains firefox and hit enter in the terminal, ip-check.info couldn't find my real IP address when I am using the firefox&flashplugin, will it still protect my IP if I proxychains other programs and using them?

Just disable that programs in your firewall, leave it only proxychains with direct access to internet. Even if some program won't get proxified properly - it will fail to connect rather than reveal your IP.

I ask another question -- can I help other users connect to Tor network just by becoming a relay or node if I'm in censored country

Please, can you tell me what country are you from? It's so interesting, I've never talked directly to a person who lives in censored country. How it's like?

If 'censored' means that some websites are blocked (like youporn in Turkey, erowid in Russia, youtube in Egypt, spotify in Europe ...) and you decide to run Tor exit node, than all of your visitors feel same restrictions. But if you run normal relay and not exit node, then country's restrictions doesn't matter at all. As far as all of your transit traffic is encrypted and travels only inside Tor network, everything gonna work fine.

But if 'censored' means that your government restricts access to Tor network somehow, then the best option for you is to set up a Tor hidden bridge.

Running Tor exit node in censored country could be useful for 'exporting' local sites outside. Some torrent trackers, file sharing services, forums etc limit access for foreigners to avoid international copyright violation reports. The only way to get them is by Tor or some local proxy.

PS: If you want to use Spotify you need to find somebody in US who runs Tor exit node. ;)

My country allows people to run Tor, but blocks Tor network. I don't think they are strong enough to crack the Tor keys as you know, the computer technology in censored country is far more less than the US.

What country are you from? China? Iran? Russia?
