Tor on the Nokia N900 (Maemo) GSM telephone

We're always working on expanding the number of different devices and platforms where Tor runs. Today we've published an installation document that should help users of the Nokia N900 telephone to use the Tor network.

Tor is configured as a client by default. The Tor status applet will also run privoxy and configure the system wide preferences appropriately while Tor is enabled. Transparent proxying is not possible with the default N900 kernels at this time.

Please note that this is an experimental configuration. The web browser on the N900 does not have the protections that Torbutton provides.

For basic circumvention needs this configuration should be usable out of the box. At the moment, we're not seriously investigating Torbutton support for the N900 mobile web browser. If there is significant user demand for a mobile Torbutton this may change. read more »

When using ubuntu, opensuse, fedora, centos/redhat, or debian, you can simply add our repositories to your package management application (yum, apt, apttitude, zypper, etc) and always have the latest -stable or -alpha tor and vidalia.

This is a direct result of hiring Erinn in December.
