Tor #

Local SOCKS Proxy #

Running a local Tor client / proxy is currently the default if none of ORPort, DirPort or 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

Start tor with tor -f ~/.config/torrc or where-ever you saved that config.
