    11This is a simple HOWTO to allow any program in Linux to resolve Onion addresses seamlessly, without proxy settings. I have been running this for over a year, and currently 10 HS nodes. This, however, is '''EXPERIMENTAL'''.

    3 The reason for this, is I wanted to run Node-Red and other applications and send data via TOR, while still being able to communicate with my Node-Red instance locally. Other programs I also use don't always have settings to add Proxy settings. Using this modification, using the local proxy is no longer needed, as the underlying resolver does that for you.

    55'''Hazards''': Standard IP queries go through the standard network. In other words, if something in [key].onion calls to google.com, the call to google goes through your NON-Tor link. DNS is also similarly NOT PROTECTED, unless you are using a [dns server].onion , and put that in your resolver.
