How to Pass All Of Your Network Traffic Through Tor on Linux


Hey guys, I am here with another post. Today I will guide you on how to set up proxy to pass all of your network traffic through TOR. If you don't know what tor is, well, Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.
This is quite easy to set up and shouldn't you more than 10 minutes. Let's get started.



Install and Setup Tor and Privoxy

  • First thing you need to do is install Tor and Privoxy on your linux. Just run the command shown below:
sudo apt-get install tor privoxy
  • After installing you need to make some small changes to the privoxy config file. To do that, run this command in the terminal to open config file in leafpad:
sudo leafpad /etc/privoxy/config
  • Now scroll down to the end of the config file and add these lines:
forward-socks5 / localhost:9050 .
forward-socks4 / localhost:9050 .
forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .
  • Now save the file and exit from the leafpad.
  • Now you need to start the tor and privoxy services
service tor start
service privoxy start
  • Now you need to open "Network Settings" then go to proxy and setup just like it is shown in the picture below

And you are done. Now all your network traffic is going through Tor.
