Anonabox FAWKES Tor Router Review


Anonabox FAWKES TOR Router Software:

Services Section: TOR

In this section, you can view the TOR status and configuration settings. You can use this section to stop, start, or restart the TOR service, which is automatically started upon boot of the Anonabox FAWKES by default. In the tabs for the TOR section, you can also set your own custom bridge configuration and advanced configuration, including setting your own nodes and exit location. This is the section that interested me the most, as for true "security," well, really as secure as you can be, you want to have full control over your path and exit. There is a wealth of information on the Interwebz that will help you customize your TOR setup. One simple change is the exit country, which is done in the Advanced section. To edit this section, you want to search for information on TORRC, which is the TOR config file. Setting a specific country is as easy as adding the line "ExitNodes {us}" to the Advanced config. If you want to exclude a specific country, you can use "ExcludeExitNodes {us}," which will not use an exit node in the United States. Feeling uneasy about the U.S., in general, you can use "ExcludeNodes {us}," which will exclude all U.S. nodes including exit, relay, and more. A good list of countries can be found with a quick Google search.



Network Shares and uHHTPd:

Finally, there is the built-in network shares you can enable from the Pro, along with the uHTTPd server that runs the UI, and can also serve other pages as a Web server, should you wish. This can also be for hosting your own .onion domain on this box, if you go that route.



Now that we have the Anonabox FAWKES configured and a good idea of the UI, we can move on to the testing to see how it performs.
