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.

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
