i'd like to use TOR/polipo behind a proxy like below


Couldn't find how to do that. When specifying a parent proxy for polipo, it goes straight for it without using TOR so my IP Adress doesn't change.

Please any idea is welcome.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

For squid:

For generic HTTP proxies

i believe is what you're looking for.

I use tor over a vpn, but i've never used it with an http proxy

The first link is dead and the apparent title SquidProxy no longer in the wiki, but there's which appears like a replacement. – Karl Richter Jan 25 at 18:24

It can be done.

I use browser -> squid -> polipo -> tor -> web

The only thing is that squid doesn't transparently proxy HTTPS.

To do this, set polipo as the parent cache in squid using the cache_peer.

cache_peer parent. polipo_ip polipo_port icp_port proxy-only default
