TORIFY(1) Tor Manual TORIFY(1)NAME
torify - wrapper for torsocks and tor
torify application [application's arguments]
torify is a simple wrapper that attempts to find the best underlying Tor wrapper available on a system. It calls torsocks with a tor
specific configuration file.
torsocks is an improved wrapper that explicitly rejects UDP, safely resolves DNS lookups and properly socksifies your TCP connections.
Please note that since both method use LD_PRELOAD, torify cannot be applied to suid binaries.
When used with torsocks, torify should not leak DNS requests or UDP data.
Both will leak ICMP data.

TORSOCKS(1) General Commands Manual TORSOCKS(1)NAME
torsocks - Shell wrapper to simplify the use of the torsocks(8) library to transparently allow an application to use a SOCKS proxy. Basi-
cally a renamed, patched tsocks.
torsocks [application [application's arguments]]
or torsocks [on|off]
torsocks is a wrapper between the torsocks library and the application what you would like to run socksified.
By default, torsocks will assume that it should connect to the SOCKS proxy running at 127.0.0.1 on port 9050. This is the default address
and port for Tor's socks server on most installations.
In order to use a configuration file, you must set the environment variable TORSOCKS_CONF_FILE with the location of the file.
If TORSOCKS_CONF_FILE is not set, torsocks will attempt to read the configuration file at /etc/torsocks.conf. If that file cannot be read,
torsocks will use sensible defaults for most Tor installations, i.e. it will assume that you want to use a SOCKS proxy running at 127.0.0.1
(localhost) on port 9050.
For further information on configuration, see torsocks.conf(5).
[application [application's arguments]]
run the application as specified with the environment (LD_PRELOAD) set such that torsocks(8) will transparently proxy SOCKS connec-
tions in that program
this option adds or removes torsocks(8) from the LD_PRELOAD environment variable. When torsocks(8) is in this variable all executed
applications are automatically socksified. If you want to use this function, you HAVE to source the shell script from yours, like
this: "source /usr/bin/torsocks" or ". /usr/bin/torsocks"
". torsocks on" -- add the torsocks lib to LD_PRELOAD
". torsocks off" -- remove the torsocks lib from LD_PRELOAD
show the current value of the LD_PRELOAD variable
<without any argument>
create a new shell with LD_PRELOAD including torsocks(8).
This script was created by Tamas SZERB <email@example.com> for the debian package of tsocks. It (along with this manual page) have since been
adapted into the torsocks project and modified.
