Well, tor and tor-devel are both clients and servers.   They can be used
with the browser (any, but preferably Firefox) or any other
socks-compatible TCP application.  This issue came up a while back so
check the archives.

It would be a nice goal to have a TBB that *just works* with the BSDs
and is in ports/pkgs.

Try using fetch(1) or ftp/wget with torsocks/tsocks.

For instance:

$ usewithtor wget ftp://....


btw, you are not subscribed to the list with that address.. I let it
through manually.  Make sure you're subscribed with that address.
