I have a laptop running Ubuntu 12.04 with Tor. Now with following credentials Tor works fine with any SOCKS5 supported apps.

Host: 127.0.0.1
Port: 9050

This laptop is connected with WiFi router (192.168.1.10). I have an iPad which is connected to same WiFi router (192.168.1.5). Now I used following credential in iPad WiFi proxy settings.

Host: 192.168.1.10
Port: 9050

But this doesn't work. I think Tor is not listening over LAN. How can I make Tor listen to whole LAN network? Or 0.0.0.0?

Open torrc file, if you use ubuntu its in /etc/tor/torrc

and edit this line

SocksListenAddress 127.0.0.1

to this:

SocksListenAddress 192.168.1.10

Then just restart tor using

service tor restart

In Vidalia Control Pannel , open Settings. Go to Advanced tab. In front of Address, type your IP address (192.168.1.10).

  • Isn't that just the control port, though and not the listening port?
