COTSE question, Chaining proxies

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by somebody else, May 22, 2004.

  1. I'd like to chain a couple proxies before connecting through the Cotse
    proxy. Is this possible? Protocals: nntp and http, & maybe ftp and p2p.

    Maybe use sockscap32 & sockschain, ctunnel-stunnel... ?

    I like what cotse offers, but I don't know if I trust them.

  2. Then don't use them. Since you have to have an account to use cotse,
    and assuming you pay by some traceable means (e.g. credit card) they
    can tell who you are regardless of how many proxies you go through
    before you hit them.

    I've found cotse to be totally reliable and honest.

    Sometimes I'd like to route through a few proxies after I hit cotse--
    haven't figured out how/

    Anything is possible if you work at it hard enough for long enough.
    nntp and http yes. Not entirely sure about ftp. But no way for p2p. That's
    a resource-sucking thing.
    Good attitude. Don't trust anyone or anything. Question everything.

    Because trust breeds vulnerability.
    And you just couldn't resist?


    Member of the Cabal -or- - Use it, you know you want to.
    If you're too scared to go look for yourself, ask me
    about COTSE. I'd be happy to tell you about it.
