While using Linux, I have been doing some research on anonimizing my traffic using various tools. However I am a little confused on all the tools I should be using. Here are some I am currently using:
*After running command
apt-get install tor *
Then I un-comment Dynamic Chain, and comment out Strict Chain, and edit file:
[ProxyList] # add proxy here ... # meanwile # defaults set to "tor" socks4 127.0.0.1 9050 socks5 127.0.0.1 9050
So here that was the proxychain section (above). I also heard about DNS leaks that could compromise proxychains, but im not sure which way to go about it.
One way I heard was to do edit
/etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf to have this:
prepend domain-name-servers 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206;
- The first 2 are the OpenDNS servers they give but im not exactly sure what I am changing when I edit this file. Am I changing this file correctly?
Also another thing I heard to change was the
/etc/resolv.conf to have various IP Addresses found on sites like OpenNIC. What am I changing when I edit this file?
So basically I wanted to know what the difference between
/etc/resolv.conf is. Also should I edit both of these when using proxychains?
And what else can I do to better anonymize myself in Linux.
