Se você estiver usando especialmente o Debian ou Ubuntu, existem vários benefícios em instalar o Tor a partir do repositório do Projeto Tor.

  • Your ulimit -n gets set to 32768 high enough for Tor to keep open all the connections it needs.
  • A user profile is created just for Tor, so Tor doesn't need to run as root.
  • An init script is included so that Tor runs at boot.
  • Tor runs with --verify-config, so that most problems with your config file get caught.
  • Tor can bind to low level ports, then drop privileges.
