    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.

    is there any setting that you can be changed to make it change IP faster?
