    I'm reading, there's a dirtiness factor for TOR browsing.

    The maximum time an ip will be used is 10 minutes by default.

    Where in the TOR files can I change that, I want my ip to change every 30 seconds or 1 minute.



    Tips? :)


    ----UPDATE----

    I found this -->http://w-shadow.com/blog/2010/12/01/tor-auto-switcher ,but I'd like to change ip's every 30 seconds. This little plugin will do a minimum of 1 minute. ideas?

    Anybody got any ideas how to increase TOR's ip rotation automatically?

    Tor changes ip's like every 2 minutes, how can I get it to change every 30 seconds?

    This is the dirtiness factor in the code.

    You need to send Tor a SIGHUP to get it to start using a new exit node i.e. give you a new IP.

    If you are using *nix, then you can setup a cronjob every minute to send Tor a SIGHUP. You will need a script that finds the tor process id (grep it out of the output of `ps aux`) and then send that process a SIGHUP signal. The minimum time for a cronjob is every minute, so if you wanted to do this every 30 seconds you would have to write a script that ran constantly in the background and did the above steps every 30 seconds. Bear in mind that it takes tor several seconds to build a new circuit, so 30 seconds would probably not be a very efficient interval to use.

    If you use Windows then you could do the same thing with the `at` command, but I can't give advice on that because I don't use Windows. However if that app you posted does switch IPs every minute, I'd just use that, because considering the time it takes tor to switch to a new circuit, the actual usable time between switches isn't going to be much over 30 seconds anyway.

    Thanks Autumn, I think you're right. TOR is slow to begin with, so a minute would probably be the minimum I'd want to use anyway.

    Thanks for the cronjob idea, I'll probably test it out too.
