Tor has been discussed on MakeUseOf before. It’s a multi-platform application that allows you to completely hide (or manipulate) the alleged origin of your network activities. It can be used to surf anonymously and also to access country-restricted services like Hulu, Spotify, and many others.
Tor reroutes network traffic through Tor nodes. With SOCKS-friendly applications like internet browsers, where we can easily specify proxies or SOCKS protocols, this isn’t much of a problem. Today, I will show you how to reroute network traffic of other applications through Tor as well.
By doing this, you can hide the origin of your P2P and instant messaging applications, or even play region-restricted games online!
