I'm currently working in Kali and I'm trying to boost my security and anonymity online. Please, bear with me for I am no expert yet. Googling and searching here has yielded useful info but not enough so I though I'd ask a more specific question.
- proxychains allow me to run network traffic trough a Tor proxy (socks5 127.0.0.1 9050)
- dnscrypt encrypts my dns-requests and, if I understand correctly, sends them to the opendns nameservers. For this to happen I altered my resolv.conf (nameserver 127.0.0.1 53)
- I have managed to get dnscrypt working with the Tor Browser so that's all well.
However, when I try to use proxychains with dnscrypt so that I could for example run software through the Tor network with encrypted DNS requests there are problems.
If I edit proxychains.conf so that the proxy is (socks5 127.0.0.1 53) it just times out over and over. How can I make it so that I can for example run nmap through Tor with dnscrypt? Am I missing something? Is this unnecessary? Is there a better way?
If I'm being unclear then let me know and I'll clarify.
