The Tor TCP DNS Daemon: update

Jake started to integrate my TTDNSD into Tor extras. This is super cool since I developed this little piece of software that allows you to do arbitrary DNS over Tor using TCP in January 2007.

Please test and give feedback to Jake or myself.


PS: this is a result of this years awesome PH-Neutral!

I just uploaded ttdnsd. New in this version is support for running ttdnsd on your local computer (before you were only able to use it through a second computer or router). This new feature is made possible though a very simple LD_PRELOAD library that comes with ttdnsd v0.2. The setup is quite simple as you can see on the ttdnsd website.

Have fun with anonymous DNS over TOR.

ttdnsd : The TOR TCP DNS Daemon

ttdnsd is a small dns resolver for TOR which I wrote during the last two weeks. It basically bridges DNS from UDP to TCP to allow DNS requests using the TOR network. I know that there are other solutions for doing DNS over TOR but non of the solutions I know about are usable on small hardware like a router that runs OpenWRT. ttdnsd is made to run on this kind of hardware (about 600 lines of C).

Feel invited to comment and report bugs.

So now that I kicked out ttdnsd I can dedicate my weekend to my new toy (the N800) ;-)
