Dear Puppylanders...

How would I make lets say Fatdog64 into something near Tails?

Or said another way. How can I set up Puppy so the user can surf the net and use videochat, but yet remain unidentified and not backtracable?

I guess Tor or VPN is the solution?

Very open for advice...

Buddy

If you set-up Tor's transparent proxy then all internet traffic will go through Tor.
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TransparentProxy

I bookmarked some more related stuff at:

Remember to kill mdnsd before starting tor. For iptables changes to work you'll have to give tor its own user id. PUt the iptables code in rc.firewall and call it from rc.local as I mentioned in another thread:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=110365

There are some limitations. I recommend doing it in a virtual box so you can do non-tor stuff outside of the virtualbox.

Opera has VPN.

Is there a pet?

"""""
Protect Yourself With a Free VPN Service

" Similar to Hotspot Elite Shield, Opera now offers a free VPN integrated directly into its web browser.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this VPN service, while limited in
the number of servers it offers, provided remarkably good speeds.
It's an excellent and user-friendly choice.

One word of caution about the Opera VPN and VPN browser plug-ins
in general is that they offer only limited protection.
They can only protect data from your browser, any other information broadcast from your computer over the internet won't have VPN protection.
That's fine for most people, but it's important to understand the limitations of any technology. "

Just in case you are considering doing anything illegal; there is no way of hiding your identity and location completely. Anyone with the power and the will will still be able to trace you to an address - both physical and logical.

Some VPNs offer various ways of routing other traffic though a VPN such SSL or SSH Tunnels and the SOCKS proxy.

Also if you combine the VPN with TORs seamless proxy then all non VPN traffic will be routed though TOR. Tor is limited mostly to TCP traffic, with the exception of allowing UDP traffic for the DNS requests.

However it is possible to tunnel through tor with other protocols.
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tunnels/Connecting_to_Tor_before_a_VPN
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tunnel_UDP_over_Tor#VPN_method_.28WORKING.29
https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tunnel_UDP_over_Tor

for example you could tunnel through to a VPS server with onioncat. This would only be useful if one was able to anonymously buy and configure the VPS server.

Another TIP. firefox/seamonkey disables onion DNS lookups by default. To use TOR with these browsers you have to go into about:config and enable network.dns.blockDotOnion.

For best security use the TOR browser as it runs every request through a separate TOR circuit. However, this will come at the cost of speed and also the TOR browser has less features. Firefox with TOR should be sufficient with most peoples privacy needs.
