NNTP proxy via Tor (sort of like watching Hulu/TVB non-USA)

Postby kocoman » Sat Sep 11, 2010 11:51 am

Has anyone got Tor to work with NNTP ?

I want to use a Tor's person that their ISP supports "Free NNTP server", but authenticates via their IP.

I'm new to proxies. I thought proxies are transparent to servers, i.e. if A uses a proxy to access B, B would think A is coming from the proxy, not from A (cannot tell). Is this not the case?

I just downloaded FreeProxy hoping to setup an NNTP proxy at home so that when I am on the road, I can still access my ISP's news server (which I assume grants access based on IP).

Can FreeProxy do this? If not, what program would allow me to do this? If yes, how do I set up users in FreeProxy?

i hope not. i'm not real clear about what exactly you're trying to do here - but if you're trying to use TOR to download from usenet, imo, that's an abuse of TOR. as for proxies - i don't know anything about the program you mention, but be advised that all proxies are not created equal. there are varying degrees of anonymity.

nntp is the protocol for newsgroups usenet port 119.

you are going to have very slow downloads and you will be abusing the tor system .

as long as you are not posting you should be safe using the newsgroups.

i have never heard of anyone being busted for downloading from newsgroups.
