Playing around with Tor, ya know how circuit quality's like the luck of
and if your using Vidalia you just click "New Identity" or whatever for
some "clean" / new circuits.
But, using a transparent proxy, you need to remotely send signals to the
Vidalia is less than ideal for this, although it does have a config
field for controller address and port.
Its buggy, crapy and obviously assumes tor is running locally.
(Required field is path to tor binary).
k, so http://www.torproject.org/svn/trunk/doc/spec/control-spec.txt
And you can control tor using telnet and the control-spec.
Except, passing cookies or hashes via telnet is a pita, so ya gotta just
leave it no auth, 127 bound and tunnel to it.
I'm scratchin my head, like, dude where's the torctl utility, duh?
