    In drop-down menu on the Privoxy toolbar choose "None", then click on "Apply" button next to the drop-down menu, and enjoy your connection as usual.

    My Privoxy doesn't want to get installed under Ubuntu 9.04. Reason is tor package, which is no longer available but was mentioned in the dependencies list for the other package. Can anyone help me installing it?

    Check out http://www.avuc.nl/2009/05/04/tor-on-ubuntu-904/. seems like that works.

    won't work for tor in Jaunty. Download debian package for tor and install it manually. The rest will be as easy as described by Dutch.

    Re: HOW TO surf anonymous

    FYI all,

    Anon browsing via proxies and TOR, for the most part, is successful. But know that there's no such thing as 100% of the time anonymous browsing. Code can be used on a Web docs that detects proxies, as well as TOR exit nodes, and the script can then do other things, like make requests to multimedia or other plugins that will send back the real IP address assigned by your ISP. And there are other methods of determining a visitor's real IP address.

    I bring this up in case anyone thinks that their identity is secured by surfing anonymously.

    Well,

    nice writeup so far...

    Anyone needing to surf anon just google "anonymizer" and it should come up with tonnes of results

    Re: HOW TO surf anonymous

    Hi, have been reading this thread and I have some questions, (I have also read the http://www.jgmnet.org/torfaq.html and that diden't help me much) I have added to proxys and "http://www.jgmnet.org/torfaq.html" says that you can use tor with a database, so how do I connect tor and the datebase?

    Re: HOW TO surf anonymous

    OK this really doesn't seem to want to work for me. This is what I've done...

    1. Followed all the steps in the HOWTO
    2. Realized that Tor wasn't installed because this guide is really old and 9.04 doesn't have it
    3. Installed Tor through looking at the torproject.com linux installation advice
    4. Installed Tor Button

    So now I've got Privoxy toolbar showing on my firefox, with my single proxy '127.0.0.1'. The settings are 127.0.0.1 with 8118 in all the port boxes except in the SOCKS box where I've stuck 9050 as the port number. On the bottom of my browser I have the Tor button text which toggles between Tor Disabled and Tor Enabled when I click it.

    I go to the IP checker site and my IP hasn't changed. Since the IP hasn't changed, I'm not going to complain about it not working for blocked (in China) sites yet.. since I can't seem to get it to work for unblocked sites!

    Note: I'm in China and I want to use this as a way to get around the bloody 'Great (fire)wall'. I usually use web based proxies but they often get shut down by the government within a couple of days. If I can get this to work, will it give me the same experience as a web-based proxy site without having to find a new one every 3 days?

    I'm completely new to Ubuntu (and proxies in general!) so please bear with me
