Advanced Onion Router is designed to bypass various barriers with a secure, anonymous Internet connection. The program attempts to circumvent firewalls, website censorship, web tracking tools, and more. Allows user of almost any application that connects to the Internet. Unlike similar clients that require a configurable proxy, AOR is able to "force" a program to use the Tor network.
Note: instructions for making Tor editions of Opera, Firefox, and Chat are included in the "Help" directory.
||WinAll / Wine
|Writes settings to:
Various Open Source
|How to extract:
Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch AdvOR.exe.
Optionally, go to the "System" menu in options and check "Try to write to disk less frequently". This is ideal for increasing the life of drives running from flash memory.
2013-04-23 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.18b
- corrected: the variable IdentityAutoChange was initialized with a wrong value (thanks to anonymous for reporting this error on sf.net)
2013-04-22 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.18a
- corrected: a duplicate variable name "iplist" (a pointer in dlg_bypassbl.c and an array in routerlist.c) caused a pointer to be overwritten with the first IP address that was shown in the "Select IP" system tray menu (thanks to anonymous for reporting this error on sf.net)
2013-04-20 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.18
- corrected: when updating some settings from the "Private identity" page with new language strings, a program restart was needed
- new option on the "Bypass Tor blacklists" page: "Save node statistics to exclude nodes that were restarted and have the same IP"; the list of IPs of exit nodes can be saved to a file to better estimate their longevity at a later time, for detecting new nodes with a better accuracy (ExitSeenFlags)
- new option on the "Bypass Tor blacklists" page: "Assume blacklists remove IPs that were not seen for [time_interval]"; IPs of nodes that were no longer seen for a long period of time can be automatically removed from AdvOR-iplist.dat to allow re-using IPs with websites that use blacklists that remove old entries (ExitMaxSeen)
- the "Hidden services" configuration page now has checkboxes near all configured hidden services to allow enabling/disabling them during AdvOR runtime (requested by anonymous on sf.net); all checkboxes are enabled by default and their state is not saved to AdvOR.ini
- updated language strings: 3260, 3261
2013-04-05 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.17
- corrected: possible buffer overflow in GetConnInfo() (thanks to anonymous for reporting this error on sf.net)
- the procedure initmemunits() was moved from dlg_connections.c to dlg_util.c
- new configuration option: IdentityAutoChange
- new option on the "Private identity" page: "Show a completion MessageBox"; this option can be used to disable the message box shown when the identity is changed (IdentityFlags)
- new option on the "Private identity" page: "Every [time_interval] change my IP|identity"; this option can be used to automatically change the exit IP or the identity at a specified time interval (IdentityFlags, IdentityAutoChange); when this option is enabled, next IP is selected according to the configured exit selection algorithm (details in the help file)
- geoip_c.h was updated with GeoIPCountryWhois.csv released on April 2nd; there are 169256 IP ranges having 455 ranges in the fake "A1" country; 451 ranges were approximated to real countries
- updated language strings: 3247, 3248, 3249, 3250, 3251, 3252, 3253, 3254, 3255, 3256, 3257, 3258, 3259
2013-03-20 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.16c
- corrected: if server mode was disabled while AdvOR was in hibernation mode, when reconnecting to the OR network the server identity key remained set while server mode was disabled, triggering an assert in get_server_identity_key() (thanks to anonymous for reporting this problem on sf.net)
2013-03-19 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.16b
- corrected: when changing server mode settings, dns_launch_correctness_checks() could had been called before configuring the name servers (thanks to anonymous for reporting this problem on sf.net)
2013-03-18 Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.16a
- corrected: the "Hidden Services" page was initialized with the resource identifier of another page (thanks to anonymous for reporting this problem on sf.net)
- the AdvOR.ini sample for Firefox was updated to work with the latest "Tor Browser" package from torproject.org
