AM vs. SOCKS5 proxy

Postby horizon » Sun Jun 30, 2013 1:35 pm

Hi,
Occasionally I use Chrome to connect via SOCKS5 proxy. (Specifically TOR.)
Chrome is configured to connect to SOCKS5 proxy using PAC file.

It looks that in that case AM does not intercept the connection. (Compared to 'direct connection' or 'http proxy'.) However I might still be wrong. Is there a way, how I can easily verify, if the page was successfully intercepted? (I am not using TOR without a reason.)

CTRL + right click should activate the Ad Muncher toolbar.

So confirmed:
If the traffic is routed via SOCKS5 proxy, it does not get intercepted.

Did you try filtering the TOR process directly via the filter targets tab in Ad Muncher?

Hi,
I didn't try that...
1. Tor.exe runs on another machine
2. Tor itself does not expose (and does really process http content). It looks "roughly" like this...

Chrome.exe ===(SOCKS5)===> TORclient:9050 ===("tor protocol" encapsulated in http via company proxy)===> TOR network/bridge:443 ===("tor protocol")===> TOR exit node ===(http/https)===> Internet

.... so the only Chrome.exe, TOR exit node and Internet knows the nature of the traffic.

TORclient could know it, should it be interested in it but since it's SOCKS, it does not care and will pass further whatever content is pumped there.

I'm afraid this will have to wait until 5.x is released.

No problem. Just wanted to made you aware of of that.

AM 5.x reference sounds like mythological future creature ;)
