tor package

Filed under: software — manoftoday @ 7:16 am

it is so stupid, tor, vadalia and Privoxy have the following issues.

1) Privoxy starts up with a GUI window, you need to manually close it.

2) vadalia creates data dir in c:\documents and settings\username\Application Data\vadalia

3) tor creates data dir in c:\documents and settings\username\Application Data\tor

all this makes portability lousy;in addition, you need to manually start Vadalia and privoxy one by one.

my solution:

1) in U:\Program Files\Privoxy create one file:


start /min ..\Privoxy\privoxy.exe
cd ..\vidalia

2) in U:\Program Files\Vadalia create one file:


start /min .\vidalia.exe -datadir .\Vidalia

3) create these two directorys in U:\Program Files\Vadalia

U:\Program Files\Vadalia\Vadalia

U:\Program Files\Vadalia\Tor

4) in U:\Program Files\Vadalia\Vadalia edit these two files:

file-1: torrc

# This file was generated by Tor; if you edit it, comments will not be preserved
# The old torrc file was renamed to torrc.orig.1 or similar, and Tor will ignore it
ControlPort 9051
Log notice stdout
DataDirectory .\Tor

file-2 : vadalia.conf

Position=@Point(0 0)
Size=@Size(844 482)


TorExecutable=u:\\Program Files\\Tor\\tor.exe
Torrc=U:\\Program Files\\Vidalia\\Vidalia\\torrc

5) now you just click the services.bat to start privoxy and vadalia service in one click
