NAME
       torsocks	 --  Shell  wrapper to simplify	the use	of the torsocks(8) li-
       brary to	transparently torify an	application.

SYNOPSIS
       torsocks	[OPTIONS] [COMMAND [ARG	...]]

DESCRIPTION
       torsocks	is a wrapper between the torsocks library and the  application
       in  order  to make every	Internet communication go through the Tor net-
       work.

       By default, torsocks will assume	that it	 should	 connect  to  the  Tor
       SOCKS proxy running at 127.0.0.1	on port	9050 being the defaults	of the
       Tor daemon.

       In order	to use a  configuration	 file,	torsocks  tries	 to  read  the
       /etc/tor/torsocks.conf  file  or	look for the environment variable TOR-
       SOCKS_CONF_FILE with the	location of the	file. If that file  cannot  be
       read, torsocks will use sensible	defaults for most Tor installations.

       For further information on configuration, see torsocks.conf(5).

       -u, --user
	      Set username for the SOCKS5 authentication. Use for circuit iso-
	      lation in	Tor.  Note that	you MUST have a	password set either by
	      the  command  line,  environment	variable or configuration file
	      (torsocks.conf(5).

       -p, --pass
	      Set password for the SOCKS5 authentication. Use for circuit iso-
	      lation in	Tor.  Note that	you MUST have a	username set either by

	      (torsocks.conf(5)).

	      $	. torsocks on
