It's not that difficult ;)

cd /usr/ports/security/tor && make install clean

Make sure the tor service starts up by adding tor_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf.

Last but not least, configure your browser to use tor as a proxy.

Code: Select all
security/tor              An anonymizing overlay network for TCP
security/tor-devel        An anonymizing overlay network for TCP
security/trans-proxy-tor  Transparent proxy used to redirect TCP connections into Tor


There are packages for all ports (but not as recent as ports), so you could try 'pkg_add -r tor'.

No, just pkg_add -r tor. Do yourself a favour and read http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ports.html before you ask for further help.

Summary I have to execute two commands:
cd /usr/ports/security/trans-proxy-tor/ && make install clean
pkg_add -r trans-proxy-tor

And then:
Make sure the tor service starts up by adding tor_enable="YES" to /etc/rc.conf


How I can check this:
Required To Run: net/tsocks
Required Libraries: devel/libevent

Use either ports (source install) or packages (binary install).
