I'm trying to download a file using
wget, but I've exceeded (without knowing there was a limit) the limit of downloaded bytes for my IP address, which means that I can't download anymore the files I was downloading repeatedly by re-running a script.
I was essentially trying to re-running a shell/bash script (somehow testing if it works correctly), but I can't do it anymore until I fake my IP address. So, I decided to install
torsocks and execute the following commands:
echo | tor & torsocks wget <some_url>
but it doesn't work. I've never really got into tor (and even less torsocks), so I'm not sure if that's the right tool for this case. Any help is appreciated.
Note: I know a little bit about the tor network, and I thought that in general it should create a proxy and not show my IP address to the world, but apparently that's not exactly what's happening.
