Linux HOWTO #3, Part 2: Anonymous Web Browsing with Tor

Link to Part 1: LINUX HOWTO 3rd installment, Part 2 Special thanks to Linux Journal ( for featuring one of my videos on their web site this week. This is the third installment in a new series called Linux HOWTOS. Every week I will post a video explaining how to accomplish something using a GNU/Linux operating system. Please write requests for installments in the comments! The internet is great for many things, but not privacy. Luckily, anonymity networks like Tor and proxy servers like Privoxy can give a certain level of privacy while online. They are not perfect, but they work very well. This video needed to be split into two parts because of the breadth of the material. The first part is simply about what Tor is and how it works. The second part contains step-by-step instructions for installing Tor and Privoxy on your GNU/Linux box. If you have any questions, please ask in the comment field, and I or someone else will do our best to answer. Please avoid ‘RTFM’-style answers. They are not welcome. Also please post corrections if I mistakenly give some wrong information. ———————– This video was created using only free and open source software tools: TightVNC, Open Office Impress, pyvnc2swf, ardour2, audacity, jackd, LAME, mjpegtools, and ffmpeg.
