Use any (linux) application through Tor with tsocks

Setup Tor:
Use your package manager to install the "tor" package
Start tor daemon if not already running.

Install "tsocks" package
Edit/create /etc/tsocks.conf:

server =
server_port = 9050

Now use tsocks <applicationname> to start a program.
All TCP connection will be tunnelled through the tor network.

UDP packages won't be tunnelled (e.g DNS), make sure your application doesn't use UDP.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
