Local SOCKS Proxy #
Running a local Tor client / proxy is currently the default if none of
ControlPort are defined.
Since most distributions should ship a default config with those commented out you only need to
download / install
tor and start it. A possible obstacle is the configured
DataDirectory if you
want to run it as an unprivileged user. In this case use this simple configuration:
SocksPort 9050 Log notice stderr DataDirectory ~/.local/share/tor
tor -f ~/.config/torrc or where-ever you saved that config.
