Socket connection to the Tor server


#1

Hi,

I’d like to code a script able to connect to the Tor server. Find above
the command line script. I’d like to do the same in ruby. I tried using
TCPSocket, Net::Telnet… no way.

Thank you
Camille

SHELL SESSION:
camille$ telnet 127.0.0.1 9051
Trying 127.0.0.1…
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is ‘^]’.
authenticate
250 OK

quit
250 closing connection
Connection closed by foreign host.

I found finally how to do that. I forgot to write \r\n at each end of
line.
Here the code:

require ‘net/telnet’

t = TCPSocket.new(“localhost”,‘9051’)
t.puts(“authenticate\r\n”)
puts t.gets
#…
t.puts(“quit\r\n”)
puts t.gets
