Resolve Hostnames through SOCKS5


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I trying to configure Tor with utorrent. I've noticed that there is no Socks4a and I've read that the only way to resolve hostnames is through Socks4a not with Socks5 or Socks4.

My question is:Is it true that resolve hostnames can't work with Socks5 if I use the option??

Thanks for the help and the explaination

Sorry guys, but I read something about it here:-


"When your application uses SOCKS 4 or SOCKS 5 to give Tor an IP address, Tor guesses that it 'probably' got the IP address non-anonymously from a DNS server."

Thanks for all your replies.
