I have a firewall in front of whonix, and I would like to restrict all outbound traffic to either tor bridges or tor entry nodes… I am having trouble with tor bridges at the moment, “general SOCKS server failure”, so I am going to take a crack at opening up the firewall to allow traffic to the tor entry nodes…
This seems like a common scenario to me, putting a firewall in front of whonix so that no traffic leaves the network unless its going through tor seems like a no brainer…
As of right now, I am in the planning stages of this endeavor.
I believe I need to allow traffic to pass to the tor directory node(s), where can I find these ip addresses?
Also, I need to know which entry nodes tor will be using, is there a file with a list of them, after connecting to the directory node(s)? where can I find these ip addresses?
Any insights to this setup are greatly appreciated.
Hey Patrick, interesting solution, its late here, so I will review it again in the morning to double check it satisfies my needs, Thank you for your help =]
Now that said, I did spend a pretty penny on a mini machine w/ atom processor to run a firewall on, since I have gone that far already, I would like to continue on with my solution, is there any chance any of you can answer my questions? =]
Most but not all answers to Tor/Tor Browser questions can be found at https://torproject.org or there abouts. Most of the time I’ll use a search engine and it will lead me back to https://torproject.org so i would start with that. I wouldn’t trust anything such as node lists unless it comes from torproject. Even then you never know who the node operator is.
