    Hello,
    we have to use a proxy in our office to use internet, meaning we have to setup a proxy in Internet Explorer. All applications need to connect to my office proxy to access internet. Other than that no internet access is available. How do i configure TOR to use proxy to access the internet?
    Thanks and Bye

    Tor cannot use a proxy, the Tor client must connect directly to a Tor server. However, you could run a Tor client on your office proxy which would allow everyone to access Tor (this would mean traffic leaving your proxy would be encrypted, but not traffic within your local network).

    If you cannot do this, then you may wish to experiment with JAP instead - that can connect via a proxy though I'm unsure of how it affects its security.
