Hello. I'm using Tor and I really like it
But Tor changes the IP address every 3-5 minutes.
I din't click New Identity, but it still changes,

Is there any option to make Tor doesn't change IP automatically.
When I open Tor, it give me an new IP address and that IP will work until I quit Tor? How can I do that?

Thank you

Hi ref1. Tor flags your circuit as being 'dirty' after ten minutes and makes further connections on a new one. You can change this by setting the 'MaxCircuitDirtiness' torrc option.

Tor cycles its circuits to help keep you safe so I wouldn't recommend changing this to anything too insane. :)

Trac is not a support forum so please take further questions to irc or the tor-assistants@ list. Thanks! -Damian
