@siegfried: I confirm your findings, even after adding a "configdir=" key with a relative path.

I'm not sure the program isn't portable like that, but it sure isn't stealth. In my defense, the method I mentioned was working in prior versions (see above). I posted the issue in KiTTY's forum: ... :(

BTW, this update (and the lack of changelog thereof) is probably caused by a version and code synch with PuTTY, which was prompted by a newly found vulnerability patch:

"2015-11-07 PuTTY 0.66 released, fixing a SECURITY HOLE
PuTTY 0.66, released today, fixes a security hole in 0.65 and before: vuln-ech-overflow."

TorChat v0.9.9.553

smaragdus on 19 Jun 2017
  • 9MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Sep 2012
  • Suggested by garbanzo

TorChat is a basic, text-only instant messaging client focused on security and anonymity. It includes availability (away, lunch, etc), optional profile, and avatar. The program requires almost no setup: just share your randomly-generated username (e.g. "bkmworoidjwxz5l") to other TorChat users. These are easily created and discarded to help maintain anonymity.

The program uses the Tor network's hidden services feature to send messages between peers with authentication and encryption based on public key exchange.

Also available for Linux.

NOTE: TorChat has been out of development for some time and connection may require additional steps. Ricochet is an attempted replacement.

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Path portability: Automatic relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: GNU GPL v3
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a temporary folder
  2. Move files located in bin to a folder of your choice
  3. Launch torchat.exe
Similar/alternative apps: Ricochet, Pidgin (with available encryption plugins)

TorChat author has moved the project page.

+++ Feb-05, 2012: This project has been moved to github +++
Further development of TorChat will continue at github, effective immediately. I have not yet decided what should happen to this project page and repository here at googlecode, for now I will just leave it as it is and just not update it any longer, I will mark all downloads as deprecated and eventually remove the project page, close the issue tracker and maybe even commit an rm -rf to the svn repository.

May be it is worth to update the links.

If you want to use Skype on Windows 8.1, you'll need to follow these instructions for now:

SkypeKit.exe is being phased out in Windows 8.1 and affects other apps as well such as Miranda NG (which is why I'm giving Trillian a test-drive).

Best multi-IM client and email checker I've tested. Works well for me portably.

ip2c v1.0.25

Specular on 12 Jan 2015
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by I am Baas

ip2c (IP address to country) helps determine the country associated with a specific address by querying the five main WHOIS servers responsible for major world regions. The program tries to establish the most authoritative location for the IP specified and then return the country's two-letter TLD, the extended country name, its world region, and a description of the organization managing IP (when available).

The program can also process a list of IPs stored in a comma delimited file and generate a new file with the country fields added to it. The program is fast, multi-threaded, and queries all the servers in parallel to speed up the overall response time.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch ip2c_gui.exe.

Thanks & fixed.

@I am Baas nice find on the new site. Direct download returns an error here though. May be worth updating with the main page instead.
