How to install Tor / Proxy / Anonymous browsing.

The objective is to browse websites with a different IP other then your ISP one, Tor has a
network of proxy servers where it allows you to jump from on to the other to finally arrive
at your final destination with a masking route.

Install tor:
# apt-get install tor

Install Firefox Add-On FoxyProxy

It has a cool wizard that will help a lot to configure and use Tor.
No need to use privoxy.
– Animated statusbar/toolbar icons show you when a proxy is in use
– Define multiple proxies
– Define which proxy to use (or none!) for arbitrary URLs using wildcards, regular expressions, whitelists, blacklists, and other conveniences

Tor Config Files:
torrc and tor-tsocks.conf
Tor bin files:

Turn on Tor Debug log by editing /etc/tor/torrc
## Send all messages of level ‘notice’ or higher to /var/log/tor/notices.log
Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices.log
## Send every possible message to /var/log/tor/debug.log
Log debug file /var/log/tor/debug.log
