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 = 127.0.0.1
server_port = 9050

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

Warning:
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!
