Description

Instead of transparently proxying them through Tor, we can probably simply deny outgoing non-torified connections to the Internet, for reasons discussed on the forum.

This change was made in feature/no_transparent_proxy Git branch.

done in Tails 0.10.

Ignored

  • GNOME VFS FTP (was working in 0.9 using the Tor SOCKS proxy): let's ignore it for Tails 0.10 as we'll get "FTP in Iceweasel":./FTP_in_Iceweasel.html.
  • Seahorse only works for hidden services, "thanks" to the Tor automap on resolve feature: FIXME upstream bug report.

Non-issues

Known issues that are not regressions:

  • "iceweasel FTP":./FTP_in_Iceweasel.html (additionally, this is repaired by feature/ff4)
  • wget FTP

Tested ok

SSH client, wget HTTP, iceweasel HTTP, Claws Mail, Liferea, Pidgin, APT, Synaptic, WhisperBack, i2p, GNOME VFS SSH, tails-security-check, seahorse, command-line gnupg, Gobby 0.4, Gobby 0.5, htp, Iceweasel FTP (with Iceweasel 8.x).
