Is there a way to ask tor/vidalia for a new identity, via the command-line, as opposed to mousing to the icon, bringing up the menu, and clicking the option there?

I'm running Mac OSX 10.6 and 10.7 with the stable install 0.2.2.32-0.2.14.

Actually, this is probably a dupe of superuser.com/questions/138262/how-to-flush-tor-circuit, since you can run a similar command on Mac OSX. –  dsolimano Jan 19 '12 at 14:43

Using this SO answer:

Open a telnet connection to the control port of your Tor service and send it SIGNAL NEWNYM.

More details please, I have the same issue. How do i go about finding the control port for Tor Would that be the http port 8118 or the Socks port 9050? –  k4t434sis May 29 '12 at 0:43
    
Neither - the control port is set in your torrc file, or you can specify it on the command line when you start tor. –  dsolimano May 29 '12 at 11:50
