TOR over VPN with Firefox
WARNING: If you want to use Tor for anonymity reasons you should install the Tor Browser Bundle for security reasons. The setup described below should only be used for non-sensitive traffic. For instance, this setup is convenient to be able to resolve .onion address without the need for the Tor Browser Bundle.
Install the Perfect Privacy SSH Manager. Open the SSH Manager by right clicking on its traybar symbol and choosing Settings. Enter your Perfect Privacy user credentials and click on Update Serverlist.
The SSH Manager comes with default examples, the Tor Proxy should be preconfigured for port 5083. Click on Connect to establish the connection.
Open Firefox and go to the Options.
Click on Advanced on the left, go to the Network tab and click Settings.
Check the radio button Manual proxy configuration and enter the 127.0.0.1 as SOCKS host and 5083 as port. Also make sure to activate Remote DNS so that .onion domains can be resolved. Click on OK to accept the settings and leave the options.
If you visit our Check IP page, the Tor connection should already be displayed.
