tor-resolve — resolve a hostname to an IP address via tor

Synopsis

tor-resolve [-4|-5] [-v] [-x] [-p socksport] hostname [sockshost[:socksport]]

Description

tor-resolve is a simple script to connect to a SOCKS proxy that knows about the SOCKS RESOLVE command, hand it a hostname, and return an IP address.

By default, tor-resolve uses the Tor server running on 127.0.0.1 on SOCKS port 9050. If this isn’t what you want, you should specify an explicit sockshost and/or socksport on the command line.

Options

-v

Display verbose output.

-x

Perform a reverse lookup: get the PTR record for an IPv4 address.

-5

Use the SOCKS5 protocol. (Default)

-4

Use the SOCKS4a protocol rather than the default SOCKS5 protocol. Doesn’t support reverse DNS.

-p socksport

Override the default SOCKS port without setting the hostname.
