Sorry I withdrew my previous comment because I do not think it was replying to yours.
Prior to reacting, thank you kindly for your diligent efforts Patrick! One day maybe I might acquire aptitude in systems administration, operating system’s, etcetera, and loan a hand on Whonix’s undertaking. The work done here is greatly appreciated.
set a socks user name or see manual quote above
I have perused the man page you linked and sadly I don’t think I’m all around read enough to comprehend the necessities here. The man page makes reference to
tor as an executable or script that has many command line args. One of them is IsolateSOCKSAuth. On the Whonix-WS am I expected to invoke
tor with these args for each stream isolated instance?
(For HTTPTunnelPort connections, this option looks at the Proxy-Authorization and X-Tor-Stream-Isolation headers. On by default; […])
When this says headers, does it mean in the HTTP header portion? Like when using
curl -H "Connection: keep-alive", or does it mean something else?
I do not expect you to read through this and answer every question. Is there some more preliminary reading topics I should investigate further? I don’t think I know enough about SOCKS either, so much of this is going over my head.
