Install and Configure Tor
We've prepared a short tutorial about installing and configuring Tor in Ubuntu 14.04.
sudo apt-get install torsocks
Here the torsocks command syntax to run another command through Tor proxy:
torsocks [another_command [another_command_arguments]]
Here are some proxified/torified apt-get command examples:
sudo torsocks apt-get update sudo torsocks apt-get install firefox sudo torsocks apt-get upgradeTo run apt-get normally again (without Tor Networks), just remove “tsocks” from the command.
Verify Tor SOCKS Proxy Connection
To check whether it is true our connection being forwarded to Tor Networks or not, we can use tcpdump command (built-in inside Ubuntu).
sudo tcpdump -i wlan0 sudo tcpdump -i eth0 sudo tcpdump -i ppp0Select one command above according to your network connection interface i.e. wlan0 if you are connected to WLAN hotspot.
The output of tcpdump above probably is very confusing for beginner but you just need to see a Tor Networks' node (in our example, ds178-77-123-41.dedicated.hosteurope.de). You may check this node domain name in https://torstatus.blutmagie.de website (by Ctrl+F in that page). If there is, than your connection is truly connected to Tor Networks. See picture below.
