In the last couple of weeks, I have been doing some research on how to hide your external IP from resources that you connect to, and I have seen various solutions which allow you to do this.
Some of the solutions are paid, and some of them are free.
The installation can be performed within 2 minutes and it is really easy to use. I recommend it for everyone which wants to use the TOR environment to hide their public IP.
Please do note – I cannot guarantee that your IP will be hidden all the time, this is just a method.
How to install and use the TSOCKS tool on Ubuntu / Linux environments
Install TSOCKS, This will allow you to tunnel your terminal commands via the TOR environment
sudo apt-get install tsocks
Edit the file /etc/tsocks.conf
1. sudo nano /etc/tsocks.conf
2. Search “server =” and replace with “server = 127.0.0.1”
3. Search “server_port =” and replace with “server_port = 9050” (9050 is the default TOR port)
4. Press CTRL+X and PRESS “Y”.
