When I torify ssh root@… I get a error "/usr/local/bin/torify: torsocks not found in your PATH. Perhaps it isn't installed? (tsocks is no longer supported, for security reasons.)"

  1. install tor using brew or macports
  2. in terminal enter torify ssh <your-username>@abcdefghijklmnop.onio
  3. you should get this error every time

Try: brew install torsocks ?

torify is something shipped with the "tor" package but you need "torsocks" underneath.

The workaround I found that works is to.

run cp /usr/bin/ssh /usr/local/bin
start tor tor
and then torify ssh root@3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion
There needs to be a easier way to solve this problem.

I found that other users are having this problem.

Yes this is a problem on OS X now. Not much we can do :S... See #17980.

A possible hack is to use torsocks with a binary outside of /usr/bin/
