Vidalia/Tor bundle connection


Recommended Posts

Hello there,

when I connect to my internet via Vidalia/Tor connection, I receive the following messange:

"Potentially Dangerous Connection! - One of your applications established a connection through Tor to " this ip address" using a protocol that may leak information about your destination. Please ensure you configure your applications to use only SOCKS4a or SOCKS5 with remote hostname resolution"

I have my firefox socks host set as with port 9050 and socks5 as per vidalia guideline.

Can anyone pls help? Many thanks for your assistance in the matter.

You need to search for option that force firefox to use SOCKS fro resolving hostnames, i dont use firefox, so i cant told where to find it (in seamonkey this option is under advanced proxy preferences)

Thank you both for pointing me to the right direction. After much reading on the issue, I manage to resolve it by doing adding and amending the following line in about:config in firefox 29:

Adding line: DNSPrefetch = false

Amend line: network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = true

Again thank you very much
