So my first question is: If an application like an IM gives me the choice between a socks4, 4a or 5 proxy, what is preferrable?
The second one is: In a lan I can set up one Tor-client and make all other pcs use it or? I found an old tutorial about socksbindaddress within torrc but I can't find it in the manual but just sockslistenaddress. But I don't understand sockslistenaddress totally:
Bind to this address to listen for connections from Socks-speak‐
ing applications. (Default: 127.0.0.1) You can also specify a
port (e.g. 192.168.0.1:9100). This directive can be specified
multiple times to bind to multiple addresses/ports.
In the standard torrc is written if sockslistenaddress is 127.0.0.1 no other can connect to this client expect the localhost? So do I have for every PC in the Lan to take its IP and make a own sockslistenaddress-line?
Like I have 4 PCs with the IPs 1,2,3,4 . Now 1 is running a Tor-client I have to write:
Is this correct? Am I winning something with using another Port for different PCs? And is there any difference between:
SocksListenAddress 127.0.0.1:9050 ?
And can I setup my Tor-Client that every pc in the lan no matter what IP it has, can use it?
