Finally found the time to install it and to configure bind to use it. Was no hassle and seems to work so far. Do we have a list of known working .bit addresses? Most of the few domains I tested are not properly configured :-(

I'm really interested in this project. I love python, but I think node is also really cool and have played a little with it.

At first I started to build the project with node v0.6, but soon realized that nmcsocks hasn't been updated to use that version yet.

Then I tried to get it compiled with v0.4, but I am still having issues. More specifically, I cannot get your dcrypt to build (npm install dcrypt complains similarly).

Code: Select all

I am running Ubuntu 10.04.3 (the current stable with everything up to date) and I have both libssl-dev and libcrypto++-dev

Whats weird is I that I am pretty sure I got further building dcrypt when I was using node 0.6 and dcrypt doesn't even support 0.5, but now I have that source deleted and don't have those log files.

I tried building without ecdsa just to see, but that failed very similary

I posted a few of my fixes as pull requests on github. But am out of ideas.

======

If I run a BIND9 server and have it forward requests to nmcsocks, is it "safe" to publish the DNS server's IP publicly? I would like to make it easier for people to resolve .bit names (including names that point to tor or i2p). I know a lot of work has gone into BIND (like running the app in a jail) to reduce the security risks when maliciously crafted requests are made. Are there any attacks that might break nmcsocks in some horrific way and then compromise my server? I'm assuming not, but just wanted to know the possible problems of running a public DNS with a very beta proxy to another DNS system.

Is there any command line to test if nmcsocks is working properly? I have nmcsocks (as part of the BamecoinBundle) running. It's listening on port 9055:

Code: Select all

rune@runescomp:~/Desktop/NamecoinBundleLinux$ netstat -na|grep 9055
tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:9055          0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN    
but I can't get the FoxyProxy browser add-on to work with it. I'd like to know if it's FoxyProxy or nmcsocks that's misbehaving.

nmcsocks has a bug with some .bit domains (some of those configured with the "ns/dns" keyword).
Could you test with "http://ns.bit" ? (configured with the "ip" keyword)
If it works, it means you hit the bug and it affects the other domains you tested.

It seems like it is the Chrome FoxyProxy plugin that is buggy. I just tried with the same plugin for Firefox, and it works perfectly. All .bit domains I've tried so far work.

EDIT: I just tried Chrome's built-in proxy configuration, it works as well. So it is FoxyProxy for Chrome that is the culprit. Non-.bit domains work as well, it seems, with Chrome's own proxy configuration, so it seems FoxyProxy isn't needed after all (at least for Chrome).

runeks: good stuff.

... would be nice if you could do short write-up with tips, hints for others who follow in your trails and leave it (or a link to it) on the wiki
https://dot-bit.org/HowToBrowseBitDomains
or more specifically its own little section somewhere here maybe
https://dot-bit.org/HowToBrowseBitDomains#With_NmcSocks

thnx.

^ I have added a note in https://dot-bit.org/HowToBrowseBitDomains#With_NmcSocks on avoiding FoxyProxy for Chrome and sticking with its built-in proxy configuration. I think this sums up the additional information I needed to make it work.

I'm not getting how to install this.

When I try to install from source, I do:
./build.sh <~/software_source_packages/node-v0.10.31.tar.gz> /usr/bin

& get:
/usr/bin is a directory

I thought you give it a path to the node tarball, & a path to openssl. What do I have to do to make that work?


Also, when I try to install the binary, I do:
sudo ./nmcsocks

& I get:
No such file or directory

...But when I do:
dir

It's there.


Please give me a hand here.
Thanks,
-F

As far as I know no one is maintaining NMCSocks; it's been mainly obsoleted by NMControl and FreeSpeechMe.
