Proctor is an HTTP proxy that will distribute requests across a number of managed Tor circuits

Project description


Proctor is an HTTP proxy that will distribute requests across a number of Tor circuits, in a round-robin fashion.

The Tor circuits are monitored for their health and restarted as appropriate.

This is highly experimental software that likely misses a lot of corner cases. The main author is a newbie in the subject matter, and while he had a lot of fun doing this thing (which works well for his own use), use it at your own risk.

Installation and usage


$ python install

This will start proctor on port 8080 with 2 Tor circuits:

$ proctor


Inspiration came from this article from Sebastian Wain over at Data Big Bang:

This package is built on top of two awesome projects:
