    Ok so I am using tor and I see the network map

    How do I choose what proxies I want to use with tor? Or can I?

    Dont even worry about it, Everytime you say enable tor on your webbrowser it automatically connects you to whatever is currently available and will be the fastest connection. If you right click your tor button say if you have mac itll be on ur bar u can look at the network map, and same for windows. I believe u can double click a location and refresh it so your using that proxy. But if you want somthing faster then tor, you could always use findmenot.c0m but most companies have those ip's flagged, good luck and i hope this helped.

    I tried to double click the location in the map on the left in the list, but nothing happens

    Is there a way to do this?

    I want to use the UK proxies

    There is an option in Tor where you can renew identity-- that makes a new exit node-- ie changes your exit proxy... now, there is a way to limit which exit nodes tor will choose-- you edit some tor file... the link is somewhere on these boards to a site that tells you how to do it. Try googling this..
    tor exit nodes change location

    You get the idea. Good luck finding it.

    Thanks for the answer, but cant figure it out. Does anyone know where I can find some good reliable UK proxies?

    I would pay if I had to.

    I don't know about you but personally I use Vidalia to connect to TOR network, if you don't know about it, its a project that combines the TOR's required application and give you a ready to go package, here is the method that works fine to me:
    Run TOR of course and go to the Vidalia control panel > click on 'View the Network' > from there you have a visual presentation of all TOR exit nodes where you can sort by flag 'simply by clicking in the top of the flag column,just do it' .. now you have all current working tor exit nodes, just find those in the country you like and write in a notepad the names of all of these servers in that country > now, back again the the Vidalia control panel and click settings > from there click on Advanced tab where you will find the full settings about tor > click on brwose, choose the file 'torrc' and choose edit > there type the following 2 lines [[[[
    ExitNodes servername#1, servername#2, servername#3, servername#4, servername#5 ....etc
    StrictExitNodes 1

    ]]]]
    replace these servername#x with the server name you previosuly wrote in notepad
    close after saving everything, restart and enjoy!
    now, each time TOR would like to change your IP randomly it will be forced by the configuration file to a preset number of servers only, all of these servers you chose from a specific country of your choice
    I would recommened that you add more servers from that country each couple of hours or days even to avoid bad nodes, or just add nodes with good performance

    You can set it up manually in your browser if you want. Find a proxy list and see which ones are in the UK.

    Also get 'Access Diver'.

    I'm using 'Mask Surf Pro'... it's a software that you can choose the country to use Tor... I don't know the link to download it, but I've downloaded here in BHW.
