Like i said on the title i have some issues with Anon and Tor. I have installed Anonsurf from the famous github release, once installed if i try to launch Tor, it doen't start.

if i stop anonsurf then tor window pop-up and connect to the tor-network.

Someone have experienced the same issues ?

On parrotOS Anonsurf and Tor work flawlessy toghether. Why isn't the same on Ubuntu ?

I have ported ParrotSec/anonsurf to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. You can download the ported version here moonchitta/anonsurf-ubuntu. Clone it with

git clone https://github.com/moonchitta/anonsurf-ubuntu.git

Make sure you have tor installed, if not then install it with

sudo apt-get install tor

After installing tor, cd into the directory and execute

sudo make install

and then run it like

sudo anonsurf start

hope it will help you.

  • it's possible run your anonsurf porting as system service? Could you explain how? Thanks!

  • Yes its possible, anonsurf is just a script, that starts tor and changes some iptables rule. create a systemd service script, and add ExecStart and ExecStop path to anonsurf.sh start and stop call. Oct 9, 2020 at 5:25
