    8 == Unix and Linux Configuration ==
    9 
    10 First, we assume you installed Privoxy or Polipo. Many applications can be set to use an HTTP proxy, and that will make your life much easier.
    11 
    12 Under Unix and GNU/Linux, most HTTP capable applications, like {{{lynx}}}, {{{wget}}} and {{{curl}}}, will honor the value of the {{{http_proxy}}} environment variable. Some applications use all lower case, some all upper, so specify both to be safe.
    13 
    14 Add the following lines to your $HOME/.bash_profile, $HOME/.bashrc, or env settings:
    15 
    16 {{{
    17 http_proxy=http://127.0.0.1:8123/
    18 HTTP_PROXY=$http_proxy
    19 export http_proxy HTTP_PROXY
    20 }}}
    21 
    22 == Mac OS X Configuration ==
    23 First, we assume that you downloaded the Vidalia Bundle and {{{not}}} the Browser Bundle.
    24 Vidalia comes with Tor and Polipo. Polipo is a pre-configured HTTP and HTTPS proxy server. Using it we can connect everything on our Mac that requires an internet connection to run through Tor!
    25 
    26 Once Vidalia is installed open System Preferences, and open up your Network settings. Choose the network connection on the left hand side that you use to connect to the internet, and then click on the advanced button near the bottom right of the window.
    27 Go to the Proxies Tab.
    28 
    29 You need to Select and set {{{both}}} the HTTP Web Proxy, and the HTTPS Secure Web Proxy server. Click on the proxy you are setting (remember to set {{{both}}} of them) Set the Web Proxy Server to: "localhost" without the quotes and set the Port to 8118.
    30 It is important that you set both the HTTP, and HTTPS proxies to these settings, otherwise only some of your data will be sent through Tor.
