I have tor-0.1.1.23 installed on my NetBSD with the help of pkgsrc system. The first lines of my tor's Makefile are:
# $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.33 2006/08/04 15:08:55 tv Exp $
When I start tor with the default tor config file the next lines are printed to stdout:
$ tor &
$ Aug 19 16:35:01.304 [notice] Tor v0.1.1.23. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity.
Aug 19 16:35:01.361 [notice] Initialized libevent version 1.1a using method kqueue. Good.
Aug 19 16:35:01.398 [notice] connection_create_listener(): Opening Socks listener on 127.0.0.1:9050
Never printed to stdout after this lines.
Earlier, in tor version v.0.1.1.22 the next text in addition was printed to stdout when I run tor:
"Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working."
Now this text is never printed.
In addition to tor-detector (http://serifos.eecs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/ipaddr.pl?tor=1) writes about me:
You are (probably) NOT using Tor.
You connected to this site from 188.8.131.52, hostname, which is NOT a valid Tor exit node. If you are attempting to use a Tor client, please refer to the Tor website and specifically the instructions for configuring your Tor client. If this is not the IP address from which y
ou appear to connect when you disable your HTTP proxy, then it may be that the particular Tor node se lected by your Tor client is multi-homed.
To repeat the problem you should install tor-0.1.1.23 with the help of pkgsrc as:
$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/net/tor
$ make install
Standard diagnostic text "Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working" will never printed to stdout.
Consequently, tor-detector (http://serifos.eecs.harvard.edu/cgi-bin/ipaddr.pl?tor=1) writes sometimes that you are not (probably) using tor.
