Bitshares via Tor
« on: February 02, 2015, 12:32:04 am »
I am using these startup sh commands on linux to start bitshares via Tor. The client appears to be working fine and fast, do you think its working correctly via Tor? Are there any other key considerations to keep in mind running bitshares via Tor like this?

export https_proxy='socks://localhost:9150'
export http_proxy='socks://localhost:9150'
BitShares %u

I don't think the https_proxy variables are read and used in the BitShares client ... but afaik there is a command that you can use as a prefix to bitshares to tunnel data through socks/tor.
Search for "torify"
