    Right everyone knows about Xerobank that masks your IP through a proxy right?

    I'm trying to get JAVA to also work with it in firefox, however we know Java runs as a seperate application and so I have been trying to use SOCKS to get it to run.

    I know from the TOR FAQ that the socks server is on port 9050 but how I make this work with Java??

    I had no look so far.. :(

    Do i need to enter the settings here??

    I tried entering 9050 into the socks field, saving the file but TOR is unable to restart and run afterwords, maybe the generator app is creating a corrupt config.ini file??

    java disabled in xbbrowser tor-mode because tor does not have a vpn connection so java can be used as a sidechannel leak.

    free solutions:
    1. janusvm
    2. tor livecd

    Trust me. I wrote the program you are using (torpark/xbbrowser). I disabled java when using tor on purpose.
    Java does not respect proxy settings. If you do what he did, it will leak.

    If you want to avoid java leaks, you need to either use one of the free solutions i mentioned above, or upgrade to a vpn connection.
