Running tor using docker

If you want to connect to tor network without using tor browser, docker is the solution!

Just copy this code into a Dockerfile:

FROM alpine:edge

RUN apk update
RUN apk add tor

RUN echo "Log notice stdout" >> /etc/torrc
RUN echo "SocksPort 0.0.0.0:9150" >> /etc/torrc

EXPOSE 9150

CMD tor -f /etc/torrc
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Build it with docker build -t tor -f Dockerfile . and run it with:

docker run -d --rm --name tor -p 9150:9150 tor
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

But, if you don't want to do the build just run:

docker run -d --rm --name tor -p 9150:9150 boris/tor:alpine
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After that, you'll have a tor proxy running in your 127.0.0.1:9150 so go ahead and configure your browser of choice to use a SOCKS proxy on 127.0.0.1:9150 and you'll go from this:

To this:

Enjoy your privacy :)

PS: Code for my Dockerfile is here and the image in Docker hub is here
