TrackHostExits option in torrc file not working as documented
- Shut down Tor
- Edit torrc file at c:\Program Files (x86)\Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\torrc so that it has the line:
According to docs, this should mean to use the same exit node for all websites.
- Launch Tor, and open any two websites - let's say https://duckduckgo.com/ and https://www.nasa.gov/
- Note that the exit node for each website may differ. If not reproducing, try using the IP addresses rather than URLs.
Why is this a problem? Some sites will generate a link that only works from the same IP as the original page. (In my case, one link is an IP that cannot be resolved to a URL, so using a URL isn't an option.)
Version: Tor 7.5 (The versions in the picker are massively out of date - not a good sign.)
