Install tor and vidalia on kali linux

By | May 1, 2013

Kali linux is the next version of backtrack in a completely new form. Tor is not installed by default in kali linux. However can be installed easily right from its own repositories.

[email protected]:~# apt-get install tor vidalia

Run the above command and tor along with vidalia should be installed.

Start the tor service with the following command

[email protected]:~# service tor start
[ ok ] Starting tor daemon...done.

Verify tor status with the following command

[email protected]:~# service tor status
[ ok ] tor is running.

Or just use Vidalia from the menu, "Applications > Internet > Vidalia".
