Secure Communication via Tor
Tor allows you to surf anonymously. It can be used not only for normal HTTP traffic but for SSH connections as well. The following is a quick installation guide.
Install security/tor and security/privoxy
Configure privoxy to use tor, configure tor to run as a normal client only.
Add the environment variables to your local .cshrc file and in /etc/csh.cshrc
echo "setenv http_proxy http://127.0.0.1:8118/" >> .cshrc echo "setenv HTTP_PROXY http://127.0.0.1:8118/" >> .cshrc
Now, most applications will use privoxy as a proxy through tor.
Check, if tor works: open http://check.torproject.org/ in your browser.
