Access Rated 3 out of 5 stars

My employer has a program on the network that denies access to certain websites. Will this addon get around this?

Is now Useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used this extension for ages
Functionality = great
Speed = variable but outside of their control
Now due to German law , data will be retained by
them for legal purposes.
So this is not the extension to use for privacy any more if they are logging data holding on to it and allowing a government to access it.
Maybe he could rename it the Tor-no-privacy addon ?

Really?

"Now due to German law , data will be retained by

First, german authorities can only access the data if it is necessary for the defense of an urgent danger for body, life or freedom of a person or if existence or the security of the federation or a country is threatened or if it is neccessary for the defense of a common danger.

Second, it is still unclear whether the appropriate obligation will exist in future. A complaint before the European Court of Justice is pending against the guideline 2006/24/EG, and also against the German conversion law to the beginning of the year constitutional complaint was inserted, in which I am, too.

Lovely and simple and it works! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After struggling for hours and still failing to cofigure FoxyProxy, Tor and Privox, thank goodness for something easy to use for occasional IP anonymity! As others have commented, connections can be very slow. I appreciate that this is outside of the control of Tor-Proxy.NET Toolbar developers. So the 4 rather than 5 stars reflects this aspect rather than any problems with the extension itself.

Its another external proxy! But this proxy use the public services of the services like Tor or JonDos. For me this service has no "added values".

Das Plugin funktioniert einwandfrei. Wie sehr man dem Betreiber vertrauen kann, ist natürlich vollkommen offen. Aber nun ja, wer die bequeme Art liebt, muss sich damit eben abfinden oder andere (aufwendigere) Wege gehen.

Was ich allerdings nicht verstehe, ist folgendes. Wenn man auf das Auge klickt "Heim zu TorProxy" kommt man zu einem Loginfeld inklusive Werbung für Ampache.

Kann mir das mal bitte jemand erklären?

Danke

Völlig richtig.

Ja kann ich. Das war ein ungünstiger Augenblick als ich gerade am Server rumgewerkelt habe, und sich ein paar unterschiedliche Seiten verheddert haben ;-)

It's slow and I keep getting "connection close" messages, and forget logging into anything! Doesn't work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1). 

@Spasms

Yes, sometimes it is slow, sometimes it is fast. This completely depends on how good JonDonym or TOR is working at the moment you use tor-proxy.net.
I have no influence on this.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Yes it works because i check my IP before and after i installed it and it did work. But jap/jondos option did'nt work,the tor did. It seemed a bit slow and i would have like to choose my ip location to get country specific content. But it does work,great for getting around filters. You can test it on sites like www.geobytes.com/iplocator.htm to see if it works for you.

Einfach aber genial! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wirklich super gelungen finde ich! So muss man sich nicht mit der elendigen TOR Installation rumschlagen.
Wie gesagt, einfach aber genial! Finde es absolut empfehlenswert

Same error after multiple retries:

CGIProxy Error

Temporarily problem

Thanks for the hint. I suppose it happend while trying to use TOR? There where some problem with the TOR-Client on the server over christmas, which should be solved now.

If not, let me know!

doesn\'t work here either Not yet rated

installed but doesnt work -timeout

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Timeout

It is a problem of TOR, which sometimes is not very fast. Try out version 0.2 (currently in the sandbox) which makes use of JonDos / JAP or try it directly at https://tor-proxy.net :-)

Works great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works most time and of course it uses TOR for anonymity. IPs are changing and every IP is a TOR-Exit-Node. Nice service.
Speed could be better, but I think, this is because TOR itself is not very fast at all. But thats why it only gets a 9...

It dont work Not yet rated

No options for control, couldnt access the internet once installed. I have a lot of doubts as to whether this simple addon could actually use the TOR network as The Onion Ring depends on there being gateways that are defined which you access, this plugin could not be an Onion Ring compliant plugin - Use with caution that is if you can make it work

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1). 

Of course it is not a TOR-Client!

I think there is a misunderstanding. This plugin of course does NOT act like the TOR-Client you get on the official TOR-Site (tor.eff.org). The TOR-Client is great and there is no need for a second one.
This Plugin makes use of the Webproxy of Tor-Proxy.NET, which gives you web-based access to the TOR-Network, as described in the FAQ:

"[...] we are not getting the content directly for you. If you access a webpage with our service, we forward your request to the TOR-Network, which will get the content, give it back to us, and we give it back to you!" ( http://tor-proxy.net/?q=en/node/1#working )

It is made for people, who can not, want not, or must not install the official Tor-Client for any reasons.
