    Question about Tor

    Can someone please explain how to use Tor-Resolve?

    I believe it resolves the IP address of a domain without sending packets to the domain. How is the application used?

    If you double click Tor-Resolve.exe, it flashes up and disappears. When i use it in a CMD window, it doesn't seem as straightforward as i first thought.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It's just a resolve query sent through/to a SOCKS proxy.


    tor-resolve(1) - Linux man page
    Name

    tor-resolve - resolve a hostname to an IP address via tor
    Synopsis
    tor-resolve [-4|-5] [-v] [-x] hostname [sockshost[:socksport]]
    Description
    tor-resolve is a simple script to connect to a SOCKS proxy that knows about the SOCKS RESOLVE command, hand it a hostname, and return an IP address.
    Options
    -v Display verbose output.
    -x
    Perform a reverse lookup: get the PTR record for an IPv4 address.
    -5
    Use the SOCKS5 protocol. (Default)
    -4
    Use the SOCKS4a protocol rather than the default SOCKS5 protocol. Doesn't support reverse DNS.
    See Also
    tor(1), torify(1).

    See doc/socks-extensions.txt in the Tor package for protocol details.

    Now, if you want to lookup antionline.com:

    #tor-resolve -5 -v www.antionline.com 68.40.92.234:10777

    Tor-resolve is obviously the command. We use -5 to indicate that we're running through a socks5 proxy instead of a socks4. -v gives us verbose output. www.antionline.com is the host we're looking up. 68.40.92.234:10777 is the socks5 proxy and port it is supposed to use.


    Let's say you want to find the domain name associated with an IP:
    #tor-resolve -5 -v -x 63.146.109.212 68.40.92.234:10777

    Same command, structure, etc, except we added the -x switch to indicate we want it to return PTR records.
    Real security doesn't come with an installer.
