- AllowOutboundLocalhost option allows torsocks to connect to a localhost address.
It might help to abolish to whole UWT_DEV_PASSTHROUGH hack / uwt circumvention confusion, explanation.
Debian version 9 codename Stretch /etc/tor/torsocks.conf
# Set Torsocks to accept inbound connections. If set to 1, listen() and # accept() will be allowed to be used with non localhost address. (Default: 0) #AllowInbound 1
# Set Torsocks to allow outbound connections to the loopback interface. # If set to 1, connect() will be allowed to be used to the loopback interface # bypassing Tor. If set to 2, in addition to TCP connect(), UDP operations to # the loopback interface will also be allowed, bypassing Tor. This option # should not be used by most users. (Default: 0) #AllowOutboundLocalhost 1
- Test the new torsocks AllowOutboundLocalhost option.
- Consider setting this option by default.
- Depending on above, consider removing UWT_DEV_PASSTHROUGH from Whonix code everywhere. (grep -r UWT_DEV_PASSTHROUGH *)
