Thanks for this, very informative. This is the procedure I am going to follow. You seem to have some experience, if possible can you post a few
examples of what kind of things you can find?
Well, on the Hidden Wiki, there are categories of links. There are things like blogs, forums (from normal to revolutionary to blatantly illegal),
Tor-enabled instant messaging and chat, anonymous file hosting, anonymous financing, information on computer security/anonymity, info on
warez/cracks/hacking, books and information exchanges, music, links to more info about supporting the Tor movement... Basically, stuff that anonymity
enthusiasts may be interested in. I personally wouldn't trust many of the files on there, though.
Then there's the VERY illegal stuff. From memory, there are links to international drug markets, prostitution rings, assassin markets, black market
products, and illegal pornography. This stuff is real, and should not under any circumstance be visited unless you enjoy prison love. There is a
darkside to the Darknet, and this is only skimming the surface of it.
I cannot access any sites, when my TorButton is "green". why? I can't even answer here on ATS.
Is your http proxy set up correctly? Are you waiting long enough (Tor is normally slooooow)? What operating system do you use? I'm on Ubuntu, so I
had to install Polipo (an http proxy), and get the configuration file from the Tor site. If you're on Windows or Mac then the Tor bundle should have
everything you need (minus TorButton). I recommend reading through the installation instructions in my previous post thoroughly, and consult the FAQ.
you fiddle with settings, so this will probably cause problems on certain webpages. Check out the
for some more info. Again, this is all fairly unpractical to use
all of the time, since Tor is very slow and the visible onion-land isn't very populated, but still it's cool to look into if you're interested in
the anonymity movement.
