How to install Tor on Kali Linux

Start commands from console:

apt-get install tor tor-geoipdb privoxy

This will install 2 separate packages ‘Tor’ and ‘Privoxy’.

Tor will host a proxy server on your machine on port 9050 of type ‘Socks5’

Privoxy will host a proxy service on your machine on port 8118 of type ‘HTTP’

Also install the GUI for tor called ‘vidalia’

apt-get install vidalia polipo

Now edit the privoxy configuration file:

nano /etc/privoxy/config

Add this line at the bottom of this file:

#forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .
forward-socks5 / localhost:9050 .

Save and close the file. This will tell privoxy to forward Socks traffic to the Service running on port 9050 on your localhost (this service is Tor)

Time to fire up Tor and privoxy services:

/etc/init.d/tor start

/etc/init.d/privoxy start

Now goto Application -> Internet -> Vidalia

Check that it says ‘connected to tor network’.

Now goto your browser and set the proxy to:

Proxy IP –  ‘127.0.0.1’
Proxy port  – 9050
Type – Socks5

TIP!: In FireFox or Iceweasel Browser, you can use ‘AutoProxy’ Add-on, to set this up.
