Description

Hi!!!!!!!!!!!

I found a new reason to use TOR!!!!!!!!!
TOR allows you to easily access geo-limited content!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is very funny!!!!!!
You never easily know where proxy servers are located!!! but for TOR nodes it's easy!!!! servers have their flags in the MAP of VIDALIA, and it's very handy to use!!!!!!!!!
So, i found this way to use a selected exit node!!!!!! In firefox you've to write in the address bar:

address.net.EXITNODENAME.exit
address.net.$EXITNODEID.exit

Either way, not all websites work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That system is flawed!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a lot of thinking and experiments i found why!!!!!!!!!!!
Click on this demo link!!!!
http://www4.ncsu.edu.spftor2.exit/~awwatkin/SHTML/dump.shtml

You see that the HTTP_HOST value has the exit node name too!!!!!!!!

HTTP_HOST=www4.ncsu.edu.spftor2.exit

I think it would be nice if in his button, mikeperry could add a feature to remove the text ".spftor2.exit" from the "HOST" field sent in the HTTP headers!!!!!!!!!
This super feature to select a particular exit node is very useful!!! but to work it needs the improvement i described as well!!!! (not a priority though!!!!!!!!!!!)

bye!!!!!!!!!!

Closing because we got rid of the dangerous .exit notation for normal use.

(Privoxy actually has the feature that this ticket asks for. But it's still dangerous to use.)
