Re: [tor-talk] OFTC and Tor



I've had issues for a long while now, which is why I'm just typically not on OFTC at all (because all connections fail as they're routed through Tor). Unfortunately, the trade-off of maintaining location security but not being available on IRC is one I have to make. Worth noting that OFTC didn't respond to a support request for this.

As for OFTC, it's just exit node luck. Maybe if you know what node is
it, just exclude it on your torrc.

I wanted to use tor with freenode and oftc in pidgin. And it seems that the method "really hope that the exit I have isn't blocked" have a very,
very low probability. (about 10%)

I still haven't figured out how to use SSL in freenode and oftc.


I am fairly sure Freenode allows access through Tor if you are registered and authenticate with SASL. There might be some additional step required
beyond simple authentication; I recall Tor users complaining about the
requirement. But they may have just been complaining about Javascript or the need to use a valid email address? Not sure if SSL is required to auth, but you should really be using it. You need to use port 6697, 7000, or 7070
for SSL.
